What really gets freethinkeruk’s goat is that this Government and previous ones, treat us as idiots. Business secretary John Hutton, said that the government might take “difficult decisions on airport expansion”. Meaning, of course, a third runway for Heathrow.
No surprise that the new Planning Bill is soon to come into force doing away with proper Public Enquiries and decisions made by an unelected QUANGO. Freethinkeruk takes no credit for spotting this intention, it was staring everyone in the face, I merely stated the obvious on 24th June along with many others and what difference did it make? None! The Government continues to act as though we’re all fools and can’t see their step by step manipulation of Parliament and rides rough shod over hard won rights and democracy.
