Blair Force One
|The British government is trying to figure out how to raise £30 million to buy a 40-seater jet for the Prime Minister and senior cabinet figures. Obviously Tony can't fly off to get his orders from Washington in any old royal jet. Needless to say the whole thing has been dubbed Blair Force One by cynical insiders, and Gordon Brown is reported to be opposed to the whole idea.|
Could this become an issue during next month's local elections?
