‘No ifs, no buts….’

Over 100 residents attended the rally in a very windy EG yesterday to air their concerns and protest against Heathrow expansion. The crowd chanted David Cameron’s pre-2010 election promise of ‘No ifs, no buts, no 3rd runway.’ HACAN (who organised the Advan) reported that the turnout had been the largest over the 3 day tour.

Last night at Runnymede full council…..

Cllr Furey’s motion to overturn RBC’s recently adopted anto-Heathrow expansion overturned: 21 against, 11 for, 3 abstentions. Cllrs Taylor, Kusneraitis, Prescott and Meares spoke against. Thanks for support from the small but noisy crowd in the public gallery. This is a fantastic and unexpectedly resounding result for those who have worked endlessly to stop increased […]
