Thread: Cam Force One

    Default Cam Force One

    It appears our Prime minister needs a private plane now to get around
    It's a snip at 10000000 for a converted tanker. Probably the final price will be a lot higher but it's only taxpayer money and we are such a wealthy country

    So taking a plane that's due to be decommissioned by the RAF i.e effectively already purchased by the country. Then allowing MPs and the Royal family to use it when travelling thus saving 775000 in fares to private companies leasing jets is a bad thing. Remind me who pays for that helicopter Nicola Sturgeon likes to whizz about in.

    Complete and foolish waste of money. Apparantly it can still be used as a tanker when unused for PM. I will believe that when I see it. I am sure they could have decommissioned a much smaller plane or bought a small jet much cheaper.

    Absolutely, pleased you too can make sense of it

    It's a no brainer
    Akin to renting a house for 40 yrs when you could have bought and had it paid off in 25 years

    Could be worth its weight in gold if it had an accident in first year! Or the insurance claims would bankrupt the country

    seems to be the way with some people nowadays, civilised discussion and debate gets turned into hate filled diatribes against people they've never met, and just disagree with.

    Oh dear me no, just because you do not agree with the man's politics, it's not just him you are wishing dead there. It's the pilots and all the cabin crew and whoever else would be so unfortunate to be on that plane with him.

    Not to forget ordinary civilians the wreckage may land on.
    Perhaps pat may wish to reconsider his/her outrageous post?
