Through your newspaper may I congratulate the prime minister and some of his cabinet ministers on making a very wise decision on the extension of Heathrow.
I believe some airlines, businesses and unions have given strong support. At last we have union leaders that realise that progress has to be made as present and future generations must be thought of. People who oppose this extension must live on another planet.
They should visit three large airports within the EU who have plenty of runways and all waiting for more business regardless of who might fall by the wayside. Employment must be of the greatest consideration.
Businesses and individuals who donate to a political party should carefully consider the future generations and supports a government that doesn't stand in the way of progress.
The Mayor of London, I believe, opposes the Heathrow extension and the leader of the opposition says he will cancel all progress if he wins the next general election. In my opinion people who oppose progress should remain in opposition until common sense prevails. This to me is vote by fear.
I have noticed over the years, and I know I am getting old, how young MPs are getting. Is it the salaries and perks that are a temptation, not the future of the country and its people?
Should they live a few more years and gain experience of life and common sense before they take such a step as they can look backwards and forwards at life and mistakes in the future would be less likely to be made. A better life could be ahead of us if we all worked together and supported progess and did not vote for people who want to destroy it.
