More Lib Dem support for airport expansion: Vince Cable
Although he is quite happy to complain about the noise in his Twickenham constituency from Heathrow and opposed the third runway there, it is quite clear that this was a pure NIMBY stance rather than for any concern about the environment, climate change or peak oil.
If anyone has an ounce of concern about the environment please never vote for the Lib Dems.
The article in Kent Business is here. It goes further than the print version and has Cllr Paul Carter (leader of Kent County Council) saying yes to an estuary airport but wanting it in Essex - he seems to be trying to out do Cable in the NIMBY stakes.
