A co-ordinator for the Back Heathrow campaign, which is calling for expansion of the airport, has called Boris Johnson's candidacy a "slap in the face".
Boris Johnson's selfish plan to stand in the same borough as Heathrow is a slap in the face to tens of thousands of people in west London.
These people rely on Britain's hub airport and the Mayor wants to close it which would result in more than 100,000 people losing their jobs including many in Uxbridge and South Ruislip.
Heathrow's bogeyman may win the selection battle but he won't get his way.
