  • Comment on: Foster + Partners launches last ditch bid for Estuary Airport

    J Eades's comment 12-Aug-2014 10:11 am

    This proposal will be devastating for wildlife, in particular, birds. Boris Johnson claims to respect the environment with his bike scheme but his proposal for the Thames Estuary demonstrates quite clearly that he is only concerned to have his name attached to everything. This is taking self seeking to an extreme and he clearly has not spent time birdwatching in that area, otherwise he would understand the damage it would do. The current battling between the various sites underlines the problem of the breakup of the airports into separate companies. If they were still one organisation we could possibly have a sensible solution. As it is, we are certain to end up with something which doesn't fit the bill.

    Of course architects would favour concreting over the whole country.

  • Comment on: Davies speech means Thames airport option is still on cards, claims Boris

    J Eades's comment 27-Jun-2014 10:07 am

    Boris champions cycling as being environmentally friendly yet proposes to destroy an area which is vital to wildlife. The Thames estuary is important for both migrating, resident and nesting birds. Putting an airport there would cause untold damage. It is a typical headline grabbing but poorly thought through idea.

  • Comment on: Douglas and King wins go-ahead for 'free school'

    J Eades's comment 15-Nov-2010 10:24 am

    Very strange that there seems to be money for this but not for other community schools desperately needing rebuilds. If it is a "free" school, for which we all pay, it is presumably state funded, not charity funded. This is not Big Society, it is Big Stick. "We will bully our policies through, whatever people say".
