Subject: BS: UK Ministers to get their own aeroplane
Does this really send the right message to those whose benefits and services are being cut?
From the BBC website -----
Prime Minister David Cameron and senior ministers are to get their own plane for official trips.
An RAF Voyager A330 air-to-air refuelling aircraft will be refitted at a cost of about £10m.
The government says the move will save about £775,000 a year as the plane will be cheaper than chartering flights.
