With the UK government having announced its support today for London's bid for the 2012 Olympics, there will be a focus on transport in London, always a subject of great debate.
As you're aware, the UK government has an ongoing project to look into runway capacity all over the United Kingdom, with the needs of the SE making the headlines almost weekly. With this in mind and in the context of the Olympic bid, it seems highly unlikely that the Olympic bid will remain credible if the UK doesn't allow expansion of airports. And with so many non European travellers coming in, the emphasis will be on Heathrow.
Roll on, R3.
Wonder will Branson beat BA in being the official airline of the 2012 bid; it might be a good pretext to "reviewing" his interest in Concorde, in favour of this new opportunity?
