    Is this an airport for London ,or the nation ?
    Where's the synergy with HS2?
    It's bonkers.
    Why climb Everest ?
    Because it's there.
    Why develop an estuary?
    Because we can.
    Even though it's bonkers.
    I'm an architect,by the way.

    Neil,this has done the rounds for 15 years ! There are one or two residents trying to hold it to ransom by digging their heels in .Otherwise CP not necessary. Consultation has been extensive over many years. The stadium scheme forms just part of a regeneration scheme for the wider area (c £230m from memory). The area has been in economic meltdown for decades. It is about as low as it can go.This has to happen to regenerate the area.

    Yes it's 'muscular', but nobody seems to have noticed that it will dwarf the Kop, which at c.11,000 is half the size, but used to be the capacity of the new main stand. So,that may result in some psychological schism.

    As for a 'red brick vernacular' I don't really agree. Red brick is associated with engineering brick which,subliminally, is associated with utilitarian design of toilets and municipal buildings.

    Ironically I think it may succeed for the wrong reasons. It's retro without trying.It's very English. It's very piecemeal.It's not slick,seamless and pretentious.

    I'm with Paul Monaghan though. If we win the league after 25 years I don't really care what it looks like.
