You know something strange is afoot when four politicians from
conflicting corners of the political spectrum find themselves in
agreement, and even more so when it comes in the middle of a hard
fought mayoral campaign.
Yesterday, instead of spending their energy fighting each other for
the support of Londoners, all four candidates - representing Labour,
Conservatives, Lib Dems and the Greens - have joined forces
to fight the expansion of Heathrow. In an advert published this morning
in several newspapers Ken Livingstone, Boris Johnson, Brian Paddick and
Sian Berry slam the government's plan to almost double the number of
flights in and out of Heathrow.
