Heathrow airport bars middle England

27 07 2007

What a great day for bizarre news stories. Aiming to prevent next month’s mooted green protest, British Airports Authority (BAA), the owner of London’s Heathrow airport, has applied for a court injunction so wide-ranging that it could reportedly bar access to members of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and guardian of the UK’s stately piles, the National Trust.

According to a report run this morning by BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, BAA are aiming to exclude all groups affiliated with the Camp for Climate Action – scheduled to take their protest to the world’s busiest airport from 14 to 21 August. But you’re fine if you’re a compassionate Christian — Christian Aid, one of the groups mooted to dig in for the demonstration, wasn’t specifically named in BAA’s application.
