WELL done Uttlesford! BAA are out of date; my feeling is that the Government will have to bow to the growing number of concerns about climate change.

The march in London last month was proof of a turning of the tide of public opinion. As for economic advantage to the area from expansion: I used to work at the airport (in HR for World Duty Free).

The majority of airport related jobs are low-paid and the shifts are long and unsocial. Is it known that staff are recruited from North London and given free transport to the airport for their first year?

Local housing is far too expensive to be in reach of such workers. Don't be bullied into caving in to threats that are at heart based on self-interest and commercial acumen.
