Thin Air

I tend to think that Boris Johnson is right about Heathrow, and that Gatwick would be a better bet.

But letting Ministers off collective responsibility is a sign of Prime Ministerial weakness, of being Harold Wilson in 1975 rather than 10 years earlier.

Of being, in a word, David Cameron.

Theresa May has already had to slap down Johnson over Syria.

Any other Prime Minister would have sacked any other Foreign Secretary for having made that necessary.

  1. The main obstacle to Heathrow-already confirmed by the Airports Commission as the best site-is that it would breach EU air pollution limits. Er, hello?
