A bunch of eco-terrorists have descended on Heathrow Airport and setup an 'eco-village' for a week in protest against a third runway for the airport. Only a pitiful 2,000 protesters are expected to turn up during the week.
Fortunately for the rest of us the police will mobilise almost as many officers as there are protesters and the officers will make sure that these eco-warriors do not use violence. The officers are also searching any vehicles that approach the 'village' under section 44 of the Terrorism Act.
The aim of these so-called green hippy protesters is to bring down the British economy. Heathrow is one of the busiest airports in the world and earns this country billions of pounds a year. Heathrow's two runways currently run at 98.5% of their permitted capacity so in order for Heathrow to grow, expand and compete with its rivals it needs a third runway, otherwise Heathrow and Britain will lose money and jobs.
However the green hippy protesters don't care about Britain getting poorer or people losing their jobs as a result of being unable to compete with foreign competition. I hope the police give these eco-terrorists a good battering and then perhaps next time they would think twice about protesting against advancement and progress.
