IT COMES as no surprise that police barred SSE from entering the House of Commons last week in protest at the inevitable overturning of UDC's objection to the 10 million per annum increase of passengers at Stansted.
A bill for costs for the enquiry has been sent to our council to accompany Hazel Blear's knife.
It would appear that the Government as usual is being utterly determined to steam-roller this G2 asap in case the Tories really do cancel it.
The BAA high command who have been lobbying support from industry are jubilant and confident - endorsements for S Wingate support their case with a battery of statistics promising untold new jobs etc. while curiously suggesting that Carol Barbone be replaced.

If they are so assured of victory, why attack SSE especially if they perceive them as down?

BAA know that they will have to raise the money while still heavily in debt in an obviously shaky economy and that they must also convince a sceptical world that their emissions are not aiding global warming.
Will the poor public already told to pull in their financial belts to save the banks accept the absurd level of flights, many frivolous, in exchange for incalculable damage and pollution visited on their own neighbourhood?
In years to come it will be morally unsustainable.
