Aircraft for all!

News that Nanny Ashton wants her own 'airplane' is causing a little consternation in Brussels, but only because if they give her one then Snr Barolo and Herr Von Rumpy will want one too.

Aircraft for all! Let's have a convoluted and corrupt procurement process that takes three years, then order say a dozen new Fokker 30s at €15m each, all painted up in EU livery.

The more the buggers trough, the sooner the sound of the tumbrels will be heard in Grand Place.

Do you have any evidence to support this, given the troughing of the last few decades?

Now taking the piss in the middle of this severe recession, I think we're entitled to refer to her as Baroness Ashton of UpYours!
