You guys are amazing. We were hoping for a big response to our announcement that we've bought a piece of the third runway at Heathrow, but it really has been overwhelming. Over 5,000 people have already signed up as beneficial owners, and the comments, emails of encouragement, phone calls, ideas and donations have made this a truly exciting start to the plot to stop Heathrow expansion.
From the moment the news started leaking out last night, and I started putting up all the info on the site on my slow USB mobile connection, people started to join, twitter, blog, and even managed to start a Facebook event before we got in there.
We're hoping we'll reach 10,000 by the end of the day so please invite your friends to join the plot.
We've had volunteers on the plot all day digging so we can lay down a chalk message - OUR CLIMATE OUR LAND - like the old English chalk outlines (if someone knows what they're called please tell me).
Our lawyers are now examining ways in which all of our owners can act as a legal obstacle to plans for a third runway at our busiest airport. Your names will appear on the title deeds of the plot, and the individuals will be formally represented at future planning enquiries and challenges to compulsory purchase orders.
The only thing left to do today is head to the pub for a celebratory pint.
