    Why London requries five airports to accomplish what other world class cities do with one or at most two is the first puzzlement? And the thought of building yet another airport in the centre of a bird estuary was also a truly brilliant idea. Yes, I know the New York area has a similar situation, however that should not be the model to go after.

    Now to increase STN? Perhaps LTN while they are at it?

    Fix LGW and LHR and be done with it, leaving LCY for their niche business.

    The longer I live in London, the more difficult I find it to put "why" and "UK Gov't" in the same sentance. Between this stupid dithering on aviation (whilst other companies and airlines go elsewhere), the ridiculous APD, etc., I'm becoming more convinced that in 10 years time, there will be no new Boris Island, there will be no new runways at STN, LTN, nor LCY, and still only two runways at LHR.
