Actually it’s not that belated, I did post last week about how I am, in fact, one of the beneficial owners of a small piece of land within the site of the proposed third runway at Heathrow. But the post didn’t work and then I had to leave the house (this unfortunately happens sometimes).
Anyway, as we all know, a third runway is ridiculous – if airport expansion goes ahead, Heathrow will become the largest single source of greenhouse gas emissions in the whole country. The government’s plans to expand airports across the UK will make it impossible for us to meet our commitment to reduce emissions. Airplot is a brilliant campaigning idea – a cunning plot, no less – and you should go and join it: Emma Thompson and Alistair McGowan can’t be wrong. (Zac Goldsmith can and often is, but ssh.)
