Simon Jenkins rails against the naming of utilities after ‘transient’ popular heros. But, and I hate to rat on a fellow blogger (especially one as estimable as Simon Jenkins), but hasn’t he got his Belfast Airports in a twist? The groving Alder he whistfully refers to is in the open plains of south west Antrim, not on the margins of the Belfast Lough.
