In 2014, CJ and I took part in the competition, judged by Hugh Grant, to highlight the fight against the third runway at Heathrow, and were among the 15 finalists.
In October 2009 before David Cameron became the Prime Minister, he declared: “The third runway at Heathrow is not going ahead, no ifs, no buts.” Yet within 30 months of taking power, the mask has fallen…. – he set up a Commission to look again at the question of a new runway. Business lobby is more powerful than the residents who would be affected by the noise and air pollution from the expansion… Foreign-owned Heathrow monopoly protecting its landing fees income is the reason why thousands of homes may be demolished.
Hope David Cameron and other political leaders start listening…. No Ifs, No Buts.
