Please don’t fall for Gatwick’s spin

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

WE have be­come aware of the fact that Gatwick are send­ing out 400,000 leaflets to the com­mu­ni­ties around Heathrow propos­ing to be the bet­ter op­tion for air­port ex­pan­sion.

We know lo­cal views are di­vided on Heathrow but we would urge peo­ple not to fall for Gatwick’s spin.

We are out­raged by Mr Win­gate’s words but are not sur­prised as dur­ing the Air­ports Com­mis­sion con­sul­ta­tion Gatwick’s Se­nior PR ex­ec­u­tive wrote to Heathrow area coun­cils of­fer­ing them as­sis­tance to in com­plet­ing the con­sul­ta­tion in favour Gatwick.

Some may sim­ply see this as two com­mer­cial com­pa­nies bat­tling it out but Heathrow has not played so dirty as the ‘jack the lad’ from West Sus­sex.

Heathrow are in for the long haul whereas Gatwick only seeks to sell as soon as they have plan­ning.

If Mr Win­gate, truly be­lieves what he said ‘rely on the com­mu­nity groups and busi­ness groups to re­pro­duce the voice of the peo­ple’
