Who in their right mind would block this plan? The film industry is one of our growing industries that is creating jobs. Hope the government will overturn the local councils irrational decision.

That Pinewood extension really needs to be approved!

The ******* arts are what drives this countries economy! I thought those muppets in parliament might have worked that out by now...

The world simply laps up British creativity whether its film/music/art/literature, yet the government Left or Right always seem hell bent of ******* the industry over. If they invested in it here like they do in the states, then Hollywood would have been knocked off its perch long ago... we've already proved that our music and literature is on par if not better.

Ridiculous post.

To put your statement into cold perspective, the homicide rate of your capital Seoul (2.4) is higher than London's homicide rate (1.6) [-]
