London Mayor Boris Johnson wants big infrastructure projects


London Mayor Boris Johnson has said the capital needs progress on big infrastructure projects such as an airport in the Thames estuary and said "the government needs to stop pussyfooting around".

Daniel Moylan, from London Legacy Development Corporation, backs the idea of a new airport and Sebastian Paynet from the Spectator said the mayor feels London needs this for growth.

But Liberal Democrat MP Julian Huppert said his party is against all airport expansion in the South East.
