Airmiles Andy Strikes Again
What’s the difference between the Duke of York and a mango? A mango is flown thousands of miles and people actually want to see it when it gets there. Yes, Airmiles Andy is at it again with a little helicopter trip to open a bridge.
Members of the Royal Family use helicopters a lot of course, but when their destination is only 70 miles away surely a car is the better option? By road it would have cost a mere £40, and by rail just £90 and a few pennies. But no, Andrew “golf-balls for brains” Windsor decided to splash out four grand for a jaunt by chopper. With behaviour like this, the Grand Old Duke wants to be careful it’s not the only chopper coming his way.
Britain’s apparantly in recession, we’re experiencing a credit crunch (well, I’m not but then my only assets are an empty bottle of Gordon’s and a half-eaten bagel), and the Royal Family should be seen to lead the way in economising. Of course the Palace are keen to stress that as HRH had a dinner at Buck House later that night, he needed the copter to get him back otherwise the whole schedule would have been thrown out.
Here’s a thought, Andy: why not cancel a round of golf, schedule a lovely little train ride to Shoreham, and work two days running. Or is that a little too much like hard work….Filed under British Royals
