Boris fantasy one step closer.
It seems that Boris Island is now to be Boris Peninsular. There is of course a big difference between a roomful of suits nodding approvingly over a model and a project actually being built but the government are increasingly gung ho for anything that might lead to economic expansion and recovery. An airport on this site would mean the end of the Kent Marshes and several small communities but hey ho. There is also the small matter of the wreck of the WW II ammunition ship Richard Montgomery that sits just of the Isle Of Grain with 1500 tons of unstable high explosive in her hold. Still, greater minds than mine etc.
