By Sir George of Reigate, what a flight of sheer delight : Bunhill
Sunday 05 February 1995
Moreover the local ex-Tory Loyalists are claiming It's All A Plot: the idea was originally put forward by the Adam Smith Institute; that well-known manipulator Sir Tim Bell is acting for the airport's promoters; and the major shareholder is Michael Stone, who has just made several million bob on the flotation of his commodity-broking company, ED & F Man, and is said to have "links at the highest levels of the Conservative Party". What is more - nudge nudge, wink wink - he paid a high price for the additional land required for expansion, so he must have Known A Thing Or Two.
All good stuff, even if the evidence pointing to a plot (or indeed against expanding the airport) does vary between the thin and the non-existent, and the airport is already used by helicopters far noisier than would use it under the new proposals.
Nevertheless, if the Government does give the go-ahead, the locals will clearly take it out on Messrs Gardiner and Baker. Come to think of it, Mr Major might not be too sorry to be rid of them. Right on, Redhill!
