Close Scotland's Airspace?

How's This For Orwellian Speak?

The Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change, Lord Turner, said that demand for flights must be constrained to keep emissions from aviation at their 2005 level until 2050.
He also backed expansion, but only because growth had already become a government policy and "the only question is where the expansion should occur."
He said: "The crucial message is about constraint on growth. It is not correct to say we've supported Heathrow expansion."
The solution might well be to shut domestic routes in favour of more lucrative long-haul traffic. Never mind, here's a solution!

The Flying Scotsman!

The man's quite right. I did a lot of flying in 2005 and I've hardly flown at all this year!

When I used to fly, all the muck was always centered around cities. Everywhere else was clean air!

(Sorry - Thatchers eye got in the road there)

Ah well, the market is working already with Easy jet talking about cutbacks on certain routes to Scotland out of Luton.

And if they want to make Thiefrow the central hub - they can have the pollution as well

The way the Beeb are harping on about "manmadeglobalwarming and its all Your fault" will probably have their viewers and listeners pissed right off with Copenhagen Fatigue come the weekend.

Tcheuchter, yes I've read a little about that today. EU Referendum also has information along the same lines as Fausty.

It's most worrying the way politicians, who must know we now know, are going ahead with this business.

Dram, I just can't cope with using Heathrow these days. It's far too packed and noisy for me. I work 'round' it if flying anywhere but it's not alway easy to plan.
