image for London Mayor Boris Johnson on the Warpath over Airports
Heathrow Expansion Back on Track

Boris Johnson, Mayor of London has set out on a 'collision course' with the Government. Boris has to face the electorate long before the Government and he wants expansion of airport capacity for London and the south east to be in his programme.

The plan for a third runway at Heathrow, which had been Labour Party policy before the election, was abandoned by the Coalition Government and Boris's idea of an airport in the Thames estuary has also sunk without trace.

Boris is addressing a number of business people when he is going to set out his plans for aviation expansion in London and he has the backing of a number of Business leaders.

'Without another runway at Heathrow' said one 'we shall lose out on the expansion of trade that is needed to push for the growth of the economy.'

Boris talked to me about his plans. 'I want to get this Government to change its mind but if I don't then I could go into Coalition with Labour taking most of the Tory Party with me. You may call me a bit of an oaf but half an oaf is better than none.'

Tories are confident that Boris's appeal will not be popular in London but restless back-benchers are ready to have anyone to take on Cameron.

'I say' one back bencher remarked 'Boris is a jolly good sort. I'd back him to put the country back on its tootsies. Let's fly B.A. (Boris Action)'
