The way planning works in this country, we will all be long dead and buried before any airport in the southeast gets a new runway, regardless of recommendations. By that time, they won't be needed anyway as any decent size airline will have moved all their operations to the continent where they do runways properly. I don't think Holland is bigger than the UK but Schipol have 5 or so runways.
