Boris Island Turns Turtle

medway.jpg The mayor’s plans for an airport in the Thames estuary were sunk by the Shadow Transport Secretary today. Boris’s opposition to a third runway at Heathrow is fairly well documented, but simply moving it to another location doesn’t necessarily make it more environmentally friendly, not to mention the inherent problems with trying to build an international airport in a flood risk area. Unsurprisingly, the RSPB weren’t terribly keen on the idea and neither were Kent residents. We can’t help wondering if Boris was hoping to recreate a childhood fantasy of Tracy Island.
