Lethargy threatens future of our city
MAY I congratulate Maddie Bridgeman on her excellent letter (Your Say, March 18). The survival of our airport is absolutely essential to the future economic well being of this city.
It is absurd that all decent road, rail and air links end at Exeter, a city a third of the size of Plymouth. One has to congratulate the MP for Exeter, and the councillors of Exeter, for putting up such a valiant, persistent and constant fight for that city. Would to God we had a similar aggressive commitment from those who represent us locally, and at Westminster.
Tudor Evans was a signatory to that now infamous Armageddon agreement, and the least he could do now is to pull out all the stops in an effort to redeem himself, and get that clause overturned. I find it incredible that anyone with an ounce of nonce, could haven been so short-sighted as to sign this city up to such a long term, restrictive agreement. He owes it to us, and to future generations to ensure that Plymouth Airport is open once more to commercial, and civilian flights, to and from the city.
What in heaven's name is the point of building thousands of new houses at Sherford and Seaton, when there will not be the jobs for those who hope to occupy them. Does he want this great city to be the benefits capital of the west?

To Tudor Evans, Gary Streeter and Alison Seabeck I say get on your bikes, and start a vigorous campaign to get the airport operating again, and we, and our children, and our children's children will be forever grateful to you. Don't go down in this history as the ones responsible for this great city's demise.
What is the point of fighting for the title, City of Culture, when its future is so much under threat because of your lethargy?
