    Default Britain's Unpaid Bills

    Britain's Unpaid Bill to the RAF


    The Ministry of Defence has banned Philip Hammond from using RAF aircraft as a row between the Chancellor and Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson escalates.

    The MoD has insisted the Treasury must settle an outstanding bill for Mr Hammond’s use of aircraft attached to No32 (The Royal) Squadron before he can be allowed to fly in them again.

    Mr Hammond uses A109 helicopters and BAe 146 jets from the squadron on official business, but officials who take VIP bookings for the aircraft have been told not to accept any more requests from the Chancellor until the bill is paid, according to The Times.

    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.
