Boris Johnson debates the third runway in Hayes
Last night London Mayor, Boris Johnson held a "People's Question Time" event at the Beck Theatre in Hayes, not too far away from the proposed site of the the third runway and where I grew up.
I didn't attend, however some of my family made it along. There was a very good turnout and the event was passionately debated. Most attendees were clearly against the development, however Lord Soley from the Future Heathrow group was there to represent the 'for' brigade. A number of interesting points were raised, particularly with respect to alternative locations for the runway.
The Guardian has a good write-up, along with some Youtube videos....
