John Holland-Kaye, CEO of Heathrow, told David Cameron, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, to “Get Off The Pot” today on live radio.
The Heathrow CEO made the astonishing statement live on LBC radio.
Holland-Kaye told LBC the Prime Minster needs to “get off the pot” and make a decision on airport expansion.
The comment is even more astonishing as Heathrow is reliant on David Cameron and his ministers on deciding if it or Gatwick gets a new runway.
The UK Government is looking at which, if any, of Gatwick or Heathrow will get a new runway. The decision is expected later this summer after the Government looks further into the noise and air pollution that a third Heathrow runway will cause.
Opposition to Heathrow is overwhelming among London politicians and the London public.
Holland Kaye also gave the impression that he regards the upcoming UK referendum on leaving the EU as a trivial matter that is holding up his plans for Heathrow expansion.
Holland Kaye told LBC:
“It’s time for the Prime Minister to get off the pot and make the right decision for the UK of expanding Heathrow.
“It’s the only way we’re going to keep this country as a great trading nation. Already, we are seeing some of our biggest trading routes getting full.
“As soon as the referendum is out the way, we need to get on and make this happen. Because the sooner we do, the sooner we can create the jobs and growth this country needs.”
Yesterday the UK Advertising Standards Authority ruled that an advert by the Heathrow funded organisation Back Heathrow was misleading and had to be withdrawn.
