Heathrow get credit for Dubai’s accomplishments

Apparently sent by Thatcher’s diplomatic private secretary Michael Alexander. The letter holds no punches when it comes to how Heathrow is doing and who should get credit for Dubai’s accomplishments.

“Thatcher used to brief him on nuclear weapons and the Soviet Union threat.” Wrote Alexander, who had more experience briefing her on nuclear weapons and military threats.

According to a note from the Iron Lady’s visit in April 1981, her disappointment with Heathrow was evident. “She questions how Sheikh Mohammed can achieve this when HMG’s experience combined with Heathrow’s inability to achieve it?

“An airport is often the first experience that visitors have of a nation. The prime minister is frustrated by the inadequacies at Heathrow, and suggests that we learn some lessons from Dubai.”

Alexander writes to George Walden, then private secretary to the foreign secretary Lord Carrington, but with a copy to Douglas Hurd, now Lord Hurd, as minister for Europe.
