PM's plane to be rebranded at cost of £900,000

Say’s it all really :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:


How perfectly emetic.


Value for money says the UK government, who are we to argue as residents of France? :wink:

As someone who pays most of my tax there I believe I have a right. The whole idea of using RAF planes was to save money on an unnecessary extravagance. I suppose since the government’s recent falling out with the airlines BA is less likely to be willing to lend BJ a plane that already has a Union Jack painted on the tail.


@tim17 By which you mean?
This is yet just another vanity project by the Conservatives (like HS2).

Perhaps they will paint a picture of a thumbs down on the tailfin?

I’m more interested in how France spends the 0000’s I pay to the impots every year Graham, unlike many on here I don’t obsess about what the UK does.


I might not live in UK but I still have relatives there (as I’m sure you might) and wasting money on a vanity project like this could impact things like child poverty and pensions so it is of interest. I also still have a vote in the UK and assessed for UK tax on our Govt pensions so - call it obsess if you like - but it is a valid interest and feel quite at ease commenting about it.


I hope the angst you’re feeling about the effect this will have on poverty in the UK doesn’t keep you awake at night Graham. :grinning:

Like many things in the news, it’s mainly incorrect. The plane is in for a refit, whilst there it will get a repaint that will be a very small portion of the 900k.

900k to paint a plane, come on wake up people.

Well obviously it seems you don’t care a flying fuck…

Not in the slightest Graham, I am though pissed off that my commune wasted 100K on a failed butchers/catering business.

I hope the angst you’re feeling about the effect this will have on your commune doesn’t keep you awake at night Tim :wink:
After all, there’s sod all you can do about it now…

Exactly Graham, not worth expending any energy on something you have no control over.

What’s it called?
Royal Air Force One?
If only his ability matched his ambitions. . . .

Uselessness Force One :rofl:
A report from :

The Voyager began transporting VIPs, including other Government ministers, in 2016 following a £10 million refit.
It was announced at the time that the 58-seater transport aircraft would continue to conduct air-to-air refuelling missions for the RAF when not in use and that it had retained its military livery.

So with its new livery - having, lost its anonymity in battleship grey, it’ll be a bit like the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier, described by Russia as just a nice big target to aim at :wink:

Can you find a link to that please. No 10 has said that the rebranding will cost that sum.

To paint a plane that size is roughly 100k, could be less.

The rest is the refit.

Don’t believe all you read…

I don’t which is why I’m not believing you. :slight_smile:
