An opinion poll of 119 MPs from all parties has revealed that 3 out of 4 of them believe it's important to develop new airport capacity in the south east of England. 53% supported a new runway at Stansted, but of course our hero Tim Yeo isn't among them
As part of his relentless fight for justice and inches, Tim Yeo was heard to say: "People in my constituency feel very strongly that it will affect the tranquillity of the Deben Vale and it will be very harmful. We need to make sure that the government understands the extent of the intrusion that a runway would impose."
That's a bloody fine quote, that is. You could almost set it to music.
But, hang on... what's this? Deben
Vale? Don't they mean Dedham Vale?
This isn't the first typo to spoil Tim Yeo's precious inches
and, if our conspiracy theory is on the money, it certainly won't be the last.
Oh, what lengths these media moguls will go to merely to corrupt the true voice of our future PM. For shame, East Anglian Daily Times
, for shame!
