Fast Lane to new Heathrow runway

From Mr Simon Dye.

Sir, Tyler Brûlé in “Look more – and share less” (The Fast Lane, Life & Arts, December 28) is to be congratulated for at last stating the bloomin’ obvious: stop messing around with fantasies of islands in the Thames and just add an extra runway at Heathrow. It may surprise those in City Hall and Westminster, but the vast majority of this country actually live to the north and west of Londonium. Please leave the Thames Gateway to the birds.
