Because the BBC is a public body and the government is trying to redistribute wealth from London to Manchester.

BBC main HQ is in Salford. The Radio Station and News centre are still in London.

To help balance the country so that everything is not based in London, to start to invest more major business in Northern England and help the economy there.

A local newspaper here deals about the construction of Kent new airport as a project evaluated to 45 billions €. Is it in the plan seriously?

Crossrail Woolwich Station box construction time lapse, February 2013

With over 400,000 working hours worked on the project, the huge station box at Woolwich, which has been built as part of the Crossrail project, has been completed by developer Berkeley Homes at its landmark Royal Arsenal Riverside development. 200 jobs were created to construct the station box.

The new station box is 256 metres long, 26 metres wide and 18 metres deep -- equivalent to the size of 32 Olympic swimming pools. It is so long that the tallest building in Canary Wharf, One Canada Square, could easily be laid on its side within it, and still leave plenty of room for a double decker bus at either end.

Berkeley Homes has completed the vast station box four months ahead of schedule. The eastern end of the box will be handed over to Crossrail in early March.

It comes from the famous Greenwich Royal Observatory which played a huge role in astronomy history and navigation during the British Empire in which the worlds time zones were created. The green laser marks the exact line of the Prime Meridian of the World (+- 00) in time.

Every clock in the world is set to the clock at the Royal Greenwich Observatory in relation to how far they are from it. It represents the centre of time.

They've actually recreated the interior of the Death Star!

There are several different plans but whether any of them will actually happen is another matter. There are huge problems with any airport in the Thames estuary and I personally can't see it happening.
