The reshuffle has revealed a plan for an airport in Twyford! So far everyone local who has commented had opposed it.
David Cameron got rid of a London transport minister to bring in one from a different area who would look at it again. Maybe people in the midlands want us to have an Airport in Twyford but so much for local people under the Tory misrule.
Tory, Lab and LibDems positions on airport building seems to depend on what they think will get them most votes. Londoners are against expanding Heathrow so the big parties locally are against. A midlands MP may not care about this though.
Greens are different, more principled, less jumping on bandwagons. If we are serious about reducing emissions then more airports is wrong. Simple really. Not to mention the massive public subsidy needed in times of austerity. Or that the wealty fly far more than the poorest.
Susainable transport is not just for the rich or the short term, but for all of us and for future generations.
