BBC News – PM rules out Thames Estuary airport plan

The government has ruled out proposals to build a major airport in the Thames Estuary or Kent to increase flight capacity for London.

The Prime Minister told the House of Commons the government had no plans to construct a new airport in the area.

See? An outbreak of common sense at Westminster, too!

I emailed my local MP about this very issue only yesterday. I got a letter in the mail today — today, mark you, 24 hours later — agreeing with me and stating she would be supporting all calls to reject any proposals for an airport at Hoo or in the Thames Estuary.

Tracey Crouch MP has gone up a notch in my estimation. She might be a Tory, I didn’t vote for her, but she seems to be okay.
