Following on from the "I'm backing Justine" poster campaign
West London residents have sent videos to the Prime Minister David Cameron in support of the Transport Secretary Justine Greening.
This follows a fortnight long campaign where people have been plastering the Piccadilly Line with ‘I'm backing Justine’ stickers after speculation that the Putney MP may be moved away from her cabinet role due to her opposition to a Third Runway at Heathrow.
One of the people who sent a video said: “We were inspired by the stickers to make a video in support of Justine Greening. She is a woman who has stood by her principles over Heathrow expansion. The lady’s not for u-turning.”
There has been pressure on David Cameron from the aviation industry to move Justine Greening from her transport post in the forthcoming reshuffle because of her implacable opposition to a third runway at Heathrow.
John Stewart, Chair of HACAN, which represents residents under the Heathrow flight paths, said:
“This must be a unique protest. Cabinet reshuffles usually generate little interest amongst voters at large. This must be the first time that ordinary residents have tried to influence a cabinet reshuffle. It shows what anger there would be if Justine Greening was moved.”
