KentOnline have an article on Boris and Nick’s fact-finding trip with some locals giving the Mayor the benefit of their advice:

  • why doesent he buld this airport in his back garden , or doesent want the plane,s flying over his home, what a prat
  • What the point of pouring concrete into the sea and blighting our country side with more tunnels and bridges and by passes to the M20 and M2 from Sheppey.
  • i am fed up with this toffee nosed idiot. He doesnt reply to emails regarding his proposals. Why doesnt he butt out of issues that affect an area NOT UNDER his jurisdiction.I already have enough noise from City airport.
  • Boris stay in london , kent is ours not yours

However, it’s not all unwelcome advice:

please build the airport, it will bring thousands of jobs to the area and make the island boom.

Given the presence of the wreck of the SS Richard Montgomery, let’s hope that’s not too literal a prediction…

Oh, and here’s a view of Boris’s “virtually non existent” visual impact.  The airport would be a bit closer than the forts in the distance and a lot closer than the windfarm on the right, and much bigger than both.
