Hoon loses altitude?

The PM faced a light grilling at the Parliamentary Labour Party's meeting last night, Lobbydog hears.

Brown agreed to meet rebels over the Heathrow runway issue, suggesting the go-ahead might not come this week.

On another note I read Greenpeace had bought a field that airport authorities would need to build the runway.

They've divided it up into small plots and sold it off to a multitude of owners, making compulsory purchase very tricky – crafty blighters.

If Notts MP and Transport Secretary Geoff Hoon still manages to get it approved this week, it will be quite a feat considering the opposition.
