Hoon's Heathrow

Talk is that this will be the week that Transport Secretary Geoff Hoon will approve the third runway at Heathrow.

The Notts MP put off the decision before Christmas but will bite the bullet despite opposition within Labour and a united front against the plan from Tories and Lib Dems.

The issue is turning out to be a big test of Hoon's chutzpah in his current role.

He was playing the employment card last week claiming thousands could lose jobs if Heathrow lost its role as a key hub.

There may be a full scale riot.
