While other newspapers were concentrating on 'proper news' as the new Big Brother got underway, I was pleased to see the Independent publishing something that matters with a plea from an Inuit leader on the expansion of Stansted Airport:
"What happens in Britain effects us in the North [Greenland] You may say that the expansion of London Stansted airport will play only a small part in increasing climate change, but everyone can say that about almost everything they do. It is an excuse for doing nothing. The result of that attitude would be catastrophic."
Wise words. The same plea could be made for the disastrous Bristol Airport Expansion.
