well I don't know about the rest,

but I for one think that the idea that people who have little or no business
at the airport are going to have to suffer 5 years of disruption whilst they
rebuild the M25 to create this Hub airport entirely unreasonable

Highly unlikely ever to happen.

"It proposes a staggered approach with the new runway to be built in the
first phase by 2026, with the rest of the airport infrastructure -
including new terminals and access - to be complete by around 2050".

24 years of overcrowding hell. Although we all know that phase 2 will
never happen.

"the plan also outlines a new low-emission zone for the airport, meaning
additional charges for those who drive a more polluting vehicle to the
airport"

Which is a bit cheeky if they aren't even claiming to be implementing
additional public transport to the airport for decades. The car parking
charges (even for a quick pickup) are already high enough to dissuade
anyone who doesn't absolutely have to drive (or is so rich the cost is
irrelevant).

True to form, I gather he's backed down from that commitment.

Promises promises!

Is that when he expects to be kidnapped by an alien spaceship?

Does that include Airbuses and Boeings?
