They never talk about the state of peoples mental health living near airports, the noise, i remember a few videos on YouTube people uploaded and the shaking the noise, one husband and many others like him couldn't sleep and had depression and anxiety from it the local councils wouldn't do nothing about it they had to pay for sound proofing, people had to sleep round family and friends places

It seems every day we hear one industry after another pleading for assistance. It's getting rather tedious. Why should one industry be more important than another?I say the Government should step aside&say'get on with it'.The successful will thrive but the laggards will disappear.1980s taught us that every failing industry being propped up by the Government,closed down.

What if there is no appetite for international travel post 12-June? Should we expect the Gov to bail out/support the airline/airport businesses due to lack of passengers. There is an arrogance on behalf of industries that things will go back to pre-Covid levels. They should be re-thinking their business model and their propositions to the public.

To be fair to the industry they won’t know until they are allowed to open. I have little sympathy for businesses that don’t respond to market changes however this was action taken by the government. People could use your argument to support another round of austerity, after all if the country is not making money then why should we have all the benefits that come with taxing people.

Usual high quality BBC fake news. The journalists read (I'm surprised they can do that too) an Office of National Statistics document prepared for parliament. Then rather than blame themselves for stating the obvious, they blame the MPs. Really ingenious, these millennials. They'd be better off sticking to social media. It's the best way to push buttons.

Surely the balance will be those who can return to work post lockdown and those whose jobs have disappeared and those whose jobs will be lost due to Brexit damage.
And they say this is the decade of robotisation and automation.
The balance will be hard to determine but we should really be considering a universal basic income...you do voluntary work to get it however...if fit and healthy that is

As with just about everything else, airports policy in the UK is dominated by centralization and London centric. In the future , it may be safer in the face of pandemics to think small is beautiful ...and certainly more manageable from a public health perspective.

Is this spike in unemployment around airports caused by the fact that airports are mostly closed & people who live close by may well work there? Really, what sort of analysis is this? A schoolkid (if they were in school) could work that out. If you have something constructive to report BBC then fine but don't report things just to stir the pot or justify you journalists' salaries!
