    Looks to be a good show:

    David Dimbleby chairs Question Time from Manchester. On the panel – cabinet minister Kenneth Clarke MP, shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander MP, Liberal Democrat Baroness Kramer, the broadcaster and columnist Janet Street-Porter and Willie Walsh, chief executive of the parent company of British Airways and Iberia

    Shame they couldn’t cover more on airports but hey ho… I think WW is right we will never see a 3rd runway or the Thames Estuary airport.

    Its typical of the BBC to have the CEO of IAG and then leave the airport question for the last five minutes. I thought there would have been an interesting debate.

    I thought Wille came over very well, certainly better than some of the buffoons they have as no political guests

    Willie is absolutely certain that there will be no short Third Runway at LHR.

    It must cause such mental anguish that his spiritual leader and mentor Willie Walsh does not share one iota of VK’s dogmatic view that a Thames Estuary Airport (Boris Island/Foster/Maplin Sands/Cliffe) is certain to materialize, let alone ever articulating it is the preferred solution.

    Hey be nice! plus Willie didn’t say anything about whether he was in favor of the Thames Estuary Airport. He just believed it would never happen because of there being no cross party consensus to deal with the issue and political will to deal with real issues.
