Heathrow Third Runway
The Conservatives are to pour more pressure onto the creaking Labour government by using next week's "opposition day" to debate and call a vote on the government's approval of a third runway for Heathrow airport. With the number of Labour MPs know to be against this expansion this could be very interesting. The Labour MP, John McDonnell for one thinks the decision to go ahead with the third runway is "a disgrace to the democracy of this country", he is right but then so much of what Tony Blair and Gordon Brown's government has done has been "a disgrace to the democracy of this country".
