Mike Thorn (Letters last week) draws attention to the way the south-east hogs capital spending (Wembley, Olympics, St Pancras/HS1, and now Crossrail).
However, Colin Clarke's attempt to bring some balance to the debate over airport capacity is most opportune. We need another airport/runway in the south-east like a hole in the head.
What the country needs is investment in clean coal, energy from waste and nuclear power. Fortunately, none of these are likely to be built near London.
