COUNCILLOR Nick Guyatt, executive councillor for planning strategy at HDC, re Alconbury Airport, said: "We've done the research, and nobody other than Ben Franklin wants it."

I, for one, do not recall receiving an opportunity to vote or give an opinion on this. Who is this councillor that assumes he knows what all of us want?

I would very much welcome Alconbury Airport, both as a frequent flyer and to see much needed jobs brought to the area.

Alconbury has the best runway in the UK. I'm sure that, if no one else, Virgin would welcome it as a base.

DAVID CLANCEY, Little Paxton
