Brother backs Boris airport

It's clearly a day for brotherly love.

First up we had David Cameron declaring how he viewed older sibling Alex as a "role model" (though he admitted growing up in big  shadow) in the Big Issue.

Now Boris Johnson's younger brother Jo, also known as the MP for Orpington, has spoken out in support of the Mayor's controversial £70 billion Thames island airport.

Setting out the need for an aviation strategy in London and the South East, Jo wrote on ConservativeHome: "It makes no sense to expand airports located in residential areas within the M25 when far better solutions exist elsewhere, such as in the Thames estuary."

Maybe they could sell the naming rights to a popular cosmetics giant. After all, Johnson and Johnson airport has a certain ring to it.
