An appeal against the third runway has been delayed by the High Court.

 

The coalition of councils, including Hillingdon, Richmond, Wandsworth and Windsor, accused the government of “putting off the inevitable”.

 

“The government has taken a colossal gamble by delaying this court action for at least a year”, said Ravi Gothindia, leader of Wandsworth Council.

 

“The country is now going to waste more time developing a scheme that will never pass a simple legal test on air quality”.

Heathrow third runway ‘unlawful’ because locals made life choices after Tory promises, opponents claim in legal bid.

 

In legal documents seen by this newspaper, four Tory councils challenging the Government are arguing their residents had a “legitimate expectation” the project would not be approved. 

 

They have identified 19 “broken promises” made by David Cameron, Theresa May and other political figures saying the third runway would be scrapped.

The experts admit to getting it wrong.

The Bank of England’s chief economist has admitted the Bank’s economic predictions for the UK post-Brexit were confounded by the behaviour of the British consumer.

The Bank had issued dire warnings against a vote to leave the European Union, with governor Mark Carney even saying the country could slip into recession.

Instead, the FTSE 100 closed on a record high for the sixth consecutive time on Thursday, the same day figures were released suggesting Britain was the fastest-growing of the advanced economies last year, with the services sector hitting a 17-month high.
