Wake up, Britain. We’ve been betrayed over Heathrow | Roger Hallam

I had just finished a 14-day hunger strike, along with other Vote No Heathrow campaigners, to try to get across our objection to the idea. We are committed. Boris Johnson – supposedly an avowed critic of the plan – couldn’t even be bothered to turn up.
In such circumstances have a right and indeed the duty to rebel
