Labour MP Andrew Slaughter quits government over Third Runway.

Labour MP Andrew Slaughter has quit his job as parliamentary private secretary to Foreign Office minister Lord Malloch-Brown to campaign against the third runway at Heathrow. In a letter to constituents Andrew said:
"Ministers are insisting that stringent noise and pollution limits are met before the new runway can be used and that use of existing runways will not grow. "But Heathrow will seek a way to break these promises once again. Opposition from residents and green groups means that we can stop a third runway being built. I assure you that my fight against it will go on."
Good on you Andrew. Full story HERE.

This could cost the government dear.

More so the cowardly decission to not allow a vote in the Commons over this.
