It is so true what Continentalclub says.
Political expediency plays such a great part in decisions. It is so cynical.
A second runway at Luton, for example is so planned that it effects very few people but there are always nimbys. Nimbys have a greater influence the higher their affluence and such is the reason for no second runway so far at Gatwick. Personal interest is paramount – what about the common good?
