Heathrow’s third runway is “unlawful” because locals bought houses and sent children to schools due to repeated Tory promises it would not happen, campaigners are arguing.
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.
As far as I can tell these promises all date back to pre-2010.
And anyone who believes the promises of an opposition politician deserves what they get, good and hard, no?
