Boris flies off in opposite direction to Cameron

If there ever had been any doubt as to whether Boris Johnson was on a collision course with the Prime Minister the it has been dispelled by this article in today's Telegraph.

They report that the London Mayor is to defy David Cameron by holding a rival inquiry into the future of aviation capacity which will specifically exclude a third runway at Heathrow.

They say that the “call for evidence” will hear from airlines, airport operators, local authorities and aviation experts, gleanings their views on his proposal for a new airport in the Thames estuary or expansion on alternative sites around the capital.

Quite how such a loaded study will provide the persepective needed to make an objective decision is difficult to see. But then Boris doesn't run the country, just London. At the moment anyway.
