    It is absolutely obvious and logical that no nation in sound mind gets rid of airports willy nilly. Manston – serving the country for 100 years, through 2 world wars – costing the last buyer £5million (only!) will offset much Heathrow/Gatwick air traffic, saving not only billions of £s (for extra runways) but much anguish of people under flightpaths and near the M25. East Kent will wake up to new potential, ‘a new dawn’. A moratorium is the order of the day for government talks on aviation/transport strategy for the South to take place. Manston needs real TLC as never before. Sense and sensibility must prevail. (Dear God, please).

    If I bought a house lived in it for three months then wanted to turn it into a factory would the council allow it NO, no more than buying an airport and turning it into a housing estate

    I quite agree with all you are saying. Manston is a place where Heaven forbid a plane that is in trouble could land safely. Manston can be used to offset the overflow from London Airports and can be used to take the freight away from them thus leaving them clear for passengers, without making people lose their homes to build another runway. It seems ludicrous to me that they want to do that, when we have a perfectly good Airport right here. It does seem to me that they are going to run rough shod over the will of the people and build houses etc and then waste money on building another runway in London anyway
