In last week's Chronicle (May 8) your article 'Boris's flight of fancy' quotes Tony Arbour as saying: "Boris Johnson was the only candidate to propose an alternative to expanding Heathrow".
I have consistently opposed expansion at Heathrow over the past 12 years, submitting evidence to the T5 public inquiry about the health effects on local residents of air pollution (using Government figures which I was permitted to submit to the inquiry, but not allowed to publish anywhere else as they were considered too sensitive).
Last year I confronted Douglas Alexander, the then Secretary of State for Transport, at Chatham House on March 6, advocating 'contraction and convergence' instead of expansion.
In August I was arrested at the Heathrow Climate Camp, for the heinous crime of lying down in a bean field with other demonstrators.
Although Tony has urged members of the public to demonstrate against expansion, as well as voting against it (points on which we agree), I haven't heard that either he or Boris have taken part in any anti-expansion demonstrations.
The aviation section of the Green Party manifesto for London proposed to: Close City Airport and turn it into an eco-housing village and green industries' park to provide sustainable employment for East London; oppose all airport expansion in London and the South East; a congestion charge for air traffic and a ban on night flights.
Where will Boris's flight of fancy lead Londoners? Will there be survivors after the crash landing?
Meanwhile, the article 'Third term for Tory assembly member' quotes figures for votes for Tory, Labour, Lib Dem, and NF.
The Greater London Assembly still has two Green Party members - Jenny Jones and Darren Johnson - who represent ALL Londoners, and can be contacted at City Hall.
