Government wins third runway vote
Unsurprisingly, the government won it's third runway vote on Wednesday. However, their majority is now down to just 19 votes, which goes to show how controversial this decision has been.
In spite of the Government's desire to run roughshod over Londoners for the sake of short term profit and possible backhanders, it's encouraging that a number of Labour politicians displayed some scruples. Hats off to Virendra Sharma and Andrew Slaughter who even quit in protest.
