News: Heathrow expansion

January 17, 2009 at 10:06 am Leave a comment

On Thursday, the UK gave permission to build a third runway at Heathrow.  Why is this such big news?  Lots of people are protesting this expansion.  According to one blogger for Tripso, “The development of the runway, additional terminal and extra roads at Heathrow will lead to ‘the destruction of more than 700 homes, a 500-year-old pub and a school.'”

This is even more newsworthy because Greenpeace purchased a plot of land in the way of the development and  have divided the plot so that about 5,000 people are owners of the land.   (Source: Yahoo! News UK)  Um, wow.  Can you say LEGAL NIGHTMARE?  Good luck to the people trying to figure out who to pay during the condemnation of the land…
