Spinning off the runway

The promise of a decision on the third runway this week appears to have been all spin after all, with the Cabinet not yet signed up. According to the Press Association:

The Government is intending to announce its decision on a third runway at Heathrow by the end of January, Prime Minister Gordon Brown's spokesman said.

The proposal to expand the airport was the subject of a "brief" discussion at Cabinet amid reports several ministers harboured serious concerns.

The spokesman said the discussions in the Cabinet had been "constructive."
