In regards to the proposed new third runway at Heathrow. Perhaps I might be a little bit cynical, but I can't help thinking that some of these people opposing the runway are hypocrites.
I do feel sorry for the people who are liable to lose their homes but, unfortunately, this goes on all the time. People are forced out of their homes because developers want their land.
But as for the people who are campaigning on the grounds of pollution and noise, it would be interesting to know how many have one or more cars in their household and how many take regular flights.
If you want to fly away on holiday or want perishable goods from abroad, then you must have aircraft.
