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.

Still not doing him much good in the polls, though. It would seem those ungrateful London voters are more concerned about local transport costs than having the chance to jet off to China more often.

1500 tons? Is that a big bang? Or a very big bang?

Boris likes a good bang
