The Supreme Court has given the go-ahead for LHR R3. Of course, HAL isn't
going to be in any hurry to build it.

Actually, it's given the go-ahead for HAL to make a planning
application (which could still fail). According to the lunchtime news
they've largely disbanded the team working on that, so it could take a
while.


Today's Guardian news (appears to be a "bad loser"):

"The UK's supreme court will refer a lawyer who broke the
embargo on its ruling on Heathrow airport to the attorney
general and the Bar Standards Board for investigation.

Tim Crosland, the director of environmental charity Plan B
Earth, received the ruling in advance as one of the parties
involved in the case, and published his reaction on Tuesday, the
day before the judgment was delivered.

Crosland said he was doing so as an 'act of civil disobedience'
and in protest at the court's finding that the government's
decision to approve the development of a third runway at the
airport was made lawfully with reference to climate targets.
....
The decision means the project can seek planning permission,
however the completion of the runway remains uncertain."
