Elected to a seat or sitting on the fence
AT least Dominic Gilham is firmly opposed to the third runway which is more than can be said for our GLA representative Dr Onkar Sahota who is publicly neutral over the issue.
This despite the fact that thousands of his constituents in the Heathrow Villages would have their homes destroyed by expansion at the airport and tens of thousands of people in Ealing would be under the flightpath.
Despite all this Dr Sahota feels unable to come out in clear opposition to a third runway unlike his Labour colleagues John McDonnell, Ruth Cadbury and Andrew Slaughter.
The first requirement of an elected representative is that s/he will stand up for their constituents.
Does Dr Sahota do this I wonder?
