Reply To: A New Airport in the Thames Estuary

Back to Forum


Be in no doubt, the only reason that an estuarine airport flies politically is that birds don’t have the vote.

As long as certain politicians are seen to support a proposal which has no electoral downside, they can also seek to avoid the risk of being implicated in the practical, pragmatic and inevitable (re)development of existing airfields.

The birds, meanwhile, risk not being sucked into the debate, but instead into the GE90s.
