Just reading that the court has decided that the new runway is illegal! Apparently it conflicts with the government commitment to climate change. At last some reality, we have to change our way of life if there's to be any impact on the climate emergency.

Yes, I’m sitting here on my third week of viruses, I start to get over them, then catch another one! I hardly ever leave my town, let alone the country. Perhaps if people travelled around less, we’d eradicate a few of them.

There go the pesky judiciary again, striking down an expansion voted for by the House. Enemies of the People, Saboteurs etc etc

I am very glad for the sake of the people living under the flight path; they should have been top priority years ago, never mind about climate change.

Dominic will soon sort that court judgement out.

Good ! Now they can start with a ban on HS2 while they're at it.

I was looking forward to the sight of Boris Johnson and John McDonnell lying side by side in front of the bulldozers.

There is much more I could say but I must dash out ( on foot).

Maybe Boris has plans to resurrect the Estuary airport?

BJ off the hook then- no need for him to lie down in front of the bulldozer.

Could we request that he does anyway...?
