Different view of RAF Northolt
WITH all due respect it is very obvious that your correspondent Mr Massey (Gazette Letters, Sept 2) by his overwhelming praise and support for use, and indeed further expansion of the RAF airfield for commercial private use, places financial gain over the well being of our area community!
By advocating pollution, noise, and the ever present threat of a disaster, of the latter we have been very fortunate so far, lets hope and pray our luck holds, I would respectfully suggest to your correspondent that should he be so fortunate as to be around if and when the third runway at Heathrow, with all its implications and destruction of homes etc, is built then he can park himself at a suitable spot and enjoy countless hours of added aircraft “twitching” to his heart’s content.
In fact the figures have changed little over the past decade. In their heart of hearts Heathrow must be disappointed with these results.
Despite the millions they have spent on advertising, the polls have not moved. Indeed the Government, which is considering whether to give the green light to a third runway, might be more interested in the numbers which continue to oppose expansion.
Hundreds of thousands of people do not want a third runway.
That is formidable opposition.
