I think this issue epitomises what is wrong with the UK .
Every major decision this country ever seems to take is blocked for years by someone ,or other, on some grounds or other .This country lurches forward in a permanent state of paralysis .
The liberal- left in particular think that democracy means blocking any decision they don't like -- that however long the argument and debate has been leading up to the decision , they think it acceptable to reject it .
That is not the democratic way .
Democracy is about arguing your corner ,and then putting the decision to a vote -- and accepting the vote .Heathrow is just another Brexit .
Various Public enquiries and Parliaments have debated all the issues involved in this issue ,many times -- and parliament has invariably made the same decision .
For a court to reject that decision -- because the judges , didn't think sufficient weight had been given to some arguments, is a usurpation of their power -- it is not up to judges to demand that the arguments they personally feel are more important than others should have been given more weight -- just that all arguments were heard and considered before the decision was made .
When judges seek to make the decisions which are those for parliament to make -- they are usurping Parliament.

Lots of them do.
A few examples:
USA = Dumpling cult takeover.
Israel: NutNYahoo's genocidal, fright-wing madness creating ill will towards Israel. Which is super stupid, considering the history of the treatment of Jewish people and the fact that Israel MUST survive.
UK: Falklands war.
I'm sure there are dozens more, but I'm pretty sleep-deprived right now. Haven't slept in weeks. UGH.

I think you'll find it was the previous government (Labour) who gave the go ahead to this.
That aside - it was always a stupid decision to expand Heathrow, it's already too crowded there. It makes more sense to expand Gatwick or Stanstead

They have only been in power for a short time, not much time to get
