David Giles states that, irrespective of party loyalties, people should rally round the Tories to defeat Labour and so reverse the decision on a third runway (Letters, Chronicle, February 5).
Well, he would say that, wouldn't he? After all, he is a former chairman of the Chiswick Conservative Association.
The problem is that his own party is divided on the Heathrow issue. To quote Spelthorne's Tory MP David Wilshire: "A lot of my colleagues are deeply unhappy with the stance the leadership is taking." (source: Radio 4's Week in Westminster, January 31).
I would also advise Mr Giles to take a look at the blog of the Conservative candidate for Feltham & Heston.
This actually praises the recent Commons speech on Heathrow given by his Labour opponent, Alan Keen.
It also states that there is little difference between him and Mr Keen on the subject.
Finally, I must take issue with Mr Giles when he describes the Tory candidate for Brentford & Isleworth as 'principled'.
If this is true then presumably she will be returning the £10,000 campaign donation she received from multi-millionaire tax exile Lord Laidlaw (source: Chronicle, April 3, 2008).
