YEAH MAN FUCK THE ENVIRONMENT


#2

Is this any worse for the environment than it would’ve been at Gatwick?


#3

Yes.


#4

FINALLY a campaign we can get the whole nation behind. “Let’s put Boris in front of a bulldozer” begins here.


#5

Never managed to keep up with which side of this debate I’m meant to be on. Has Prince Charles opined on it yet?


#6

How come?


#7

No, because “bad enough” is practically no different to “worse than bad enough”.


#8

94% flights from the new runway will go to Europe. Gatwick is closer to Europe than Heathrow.


#9

Got ya.


#10

they should put the runway in europe


#11

I’m hoping that was a joke from Vince.


#12

this is the most exciting news for Runway Building simulator ever!


#13

I agree. No queuing at passport control either. This is why you should have been on the new runway commitee Fopps instead of…whoever it was.


#14

Are they going to make Heathrow less of a ballache to get to?

Always seemed to make sense to me to make Gatwick the size of Heathrow, rather than turning Heathrow into even more of a monstrosity. But whatever. I guess I won’t really care when we’re all fighting each other for the last of the fresh water.


#15

this is the bit i was liking in particular


#16

I assumed that it was, given that the relative inaccessibility of Gatwick to the rest of the country means that most passengers will be travelling further to get there.


#17

I flew into heathrow this morning and it was busy so we got put in a holding pattern before we could land for 20 minutes

true story


#18

It’s not just me, it’s a real pain right?

Heathrow Express - fuck off, I’m not a Saudi princeling.
Piccadilly Line - Kill me now
Cab - Mate, I’ve got a flight to catch
Anyone driving from the rest of the country has the M25 to deal with as well.


#19

Crossrail will, and HS2 is meant to, have spurs to Heathrow.


#20

Forgot about Crossrail.
