Lib Dems slam Government’s £900k makeover of RAF Voyager as “absurd waste”

Responding to reports that the Government is set to spend £900k to repaint RAF Voyager in the colours of the Union Jack flag, Liberal Democrat Defence Spokesperson, Jamie Stone MP said:  “This absurd waste of nearly £1 million at a time when so many families are struggling to put food on the table and so many are worried about their job security is insulting.

“The country is facing the biggest crisis in generations but Boris Johnson is concerned with the colours of his plane.

“This government continue to astound with their posturing. It is disgraceful. They should halt these plans and use the money to help those who need it most right now instead.”
