There is no such thing as a Stupid Question, just a Stupid Answer.

The problem with Heathrow is not that there are too few runways (whether 2 or 6)
but that there was never enough space for a large international airport in the
grounds of Heathrow, given the prevailing winds across the Capital.

It would have been far better to have accepted this in the 1960's and 70's and
reclaimed enough land in the Thames estuary to build a new London International
Airport, as indeed we did in Hong Kong to replace Kai Tak.

Instead BAA are trying to bulldoze through their plans for a third runway in an
entirely inappropriate location, and the people who own the property in this area,
already blighted by being in the vicinity of Heathrow, are also suffering the
stress of ongoing uncertainty.
