Talk about one sided!

PV,

Thanks for the link - nice of the Beeb to give him the opportunity to reply and put down those who weren't totally supportive! Who gets to reply to him?!

I truly despair of the outrageous "human interest" bias of the media in situations like this - the little guy is not always right, and just because he shouts louder or causes more of a fuss, it doesn't make his case any more valid.

Having lived in Central London - where (God forbid) you can hear aircraft noise, Feltham (where you can't avoid it - especially that pesky Concorde) and Egham, nicely under the flightpath just out of Heathrow, all I can say is if you don't like it - MOVE.

Anyway, these campaigners should try living near to an operational RAF or USAF base - an F1-11 with afterburners lit vs a nice little A300...I know which one I'd rather listen to...

Idiots the lot of them!

My shuttle to Heathrow had to circle for at least 15 mins last Friday because of these idiots holding up the airports development. (just wonder how good this was for the environment)

This got me pretty pi*sed off, and after reading about Stewarts interest in direct action I thought mabye some of us should take this approach and bombard his inbox with some of the finest email viruses known to man.

I once subscribed to there e-mail list to listern to what they had to say...
All I can say that it is mis-represented tripe.
Try it for yourselves... The lefties now have computers.

There are more important things in life, these people should not be allowed to threaten peoples jobs. I have asked several people to find out where he lives and then have a sign errected outside his house, inscribed
"COMPULSORY HORN TESTING AREA - TEST YOUR HORN"

That may take his self important mind out his his arse for a while.
