Boris on Heathrow
"[Addition of a third runway would] entrench one of the most grievous planning errors of the 1950's and 1960's by expanding Heathrow, the only airport I'm aware of in any major democracy in which the planes are required to fly over the principal conurbation in order to land, something that most other countries ban now as being unsafe..." (Boris Johnson)
This is exactly what I think and feel about flights over cities. They should be banned, not increased. Let's kick out the lazy and dopey New Labour mayor and let him spend more time with his families.
