Who in their right mind would set foot in the UK today anyway?
10/29/11, "Airport restrictions 'damaging economy', Tory peer says," BBC
"The government's refusal to allow expansion at London's main airports will damage the UK economy, according to the former owner of the airline BMI.
Conservative peer and party donor Lord Glendonbrook says new runways are needed at the London airports Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted.
However, the coalition agreement ruled out allowing their construction.
Ministers are to publish their vision for what they call "sustainable growth" in the UK aviation industry next year.
They say they want airports to be "better", rather than simply bigger.
During recent consultation airport operator BAA said the UK could lose out on trade with emerging markets worth £1.4bn a year if Heathrow is not allowed to expand.
Lord Glendonbrook told the BBC's Politics Show: "There is a strong and sound - both environmental and economic - case to continue building at Heathrow.
"The idea of having no development of existing airports in the south east... is going to be hugely damaging to the country and to the economy."
The peer, a former Channel 4 chairman who as Sir Michael Bishop owned the carrier BMI, is
- one of the Conservatives' biggest donors."
How to read a BBC article: The BBC is owned by the UK government which is heavily invested the global warming and "sustainable" racket. The survival of the British monarchy depends on the world accepting man-made global warming as it will rely mainly on rental fees from wind turbines for income. Instead of mentioning this, the BBC implies that an airport growth advocate is just a politically motivated guy with money who gave to 'conservatives.' Hopefully no one will go to their dreadful country, then the BBC will have no worries. ed.
