TheyWe spent a million bucks on that disjointed mess? Thanks Boris.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast:
For it is the number of a man; and its number is One hundred threescore and twelve.

I like it. Seems to be the same sort of template as most other European countries.
There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

Very nice. Sure beats drab drab. Will Queen Elizabeth and/or King Charles get to play on it eventually?

One of our universities was going through a rape crisis. Spent 1.5 million on a new slogan. The slogan? Very simply,

"Thrive."

LOL. Y'all got a good deal!

Dismal. We're being represented by an overpriced Air UK Leisure livery, which does seem somewhat appropriate.
A million great ideas...

A grey military transport quietly projected far more "don't mess with us" than this disaster. Looks like they gave Boris a box of crayons and he couldn't figure out how to eat them while wearing a face mask.

Honestly, the money would've been better spent on a flesh-toned Airlander with a mop of blond hair on top of the arse bit.

I thought it looked vaguely familiar!

Aren't you glad we left the EU and can do our own thing now? {crazy}

I understand it is dual purpose, VIP travel and could be used as a tanker for the armed forces if needed? Hope they plan on keeping it well back from the front because its got "target" painted all over it.
What's the point of an open door policy if inside the open door sits a closed mind?

I like it, and I don`t see any reason why we should not have something decent to represent the country. Too many have climbed on the band wagon to kick Boris as often as possible, which I think is grossly unfair. I shudder to think of what would have happened in the UK with Covid-19 had Corbyn and Labour got in.

The timing of it may not be the best in the world, but people need to realise the aircraft will still be used for it`s transport and tanker role when not needed by UK VIPS.

Also context for non aviation friends, class bravo airspace referenced here is some of the most tightly controlled civilian air spaces. They tend to encircle very high traffic regions like Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, DC, etc... All airplanes entering are required to get clearance before doing so from a controller so that ATC can keep all traffic safe from each other and avoid any collisions

Needless to say, this is one that won't be in my cabinet. {crazy}

I assume it'd get repainted, or at least stripped back to bare white, before getting sent anywhere interesting. In that sense, it's no different to the Voyagers that were leased out to Thomas Cook.

Still, a grey one wouldn't need that doing.
