Greenpeace buys Heathrow land

Interesting piece on the BBC’s website today if you haven’t already seen it – apparently a Greenpeace coalition has bought some of the land earmarked for the construction of London Heathrow’s third runway.

The coalition, which includes UK actress Emma Thompson, is hoping that buying up the land will throw a “massive spanner” in the works, should the proposed third runway get the go-ahead.

This is a great example of the phrase “putting your money where your mouth is”, and whatever your feelings about the controversial third runway, you have to respect the obvious strength of people’s feelings towards this proposal.

It’s going to be a hell of a battle!
