The new mayor of London has approved an urban airport's right to buy public land for expansion.

Right-wing Labour stalwart Sadiq Khan overturned the previous objection - from Tory mayor Boris Johnson! London City Airport is right in the middle of an east London residential area.

Khan's approval came around the same time that Johnson's suppressed report on the capital's poisonous air was surfacing (see socialistparty.org.uk, 'Boris hid killer air report'). No to Tories, no to Blairites, no to London City Airport expansion. Fight the cuts - fight for investment in green tech and public transport.
