New row over Blairs' use of RAF planes

TONY Blair, the Prime Minister, was last night facing fresh questions about his use of RAF aircraft for personal journeys after it emerged that members of his family had travelled on a plane from the Royal Squadron without him.

Mr Blair, his wife, Cherie, and members of his family spent part of the weekend with the Queen at Balmoral after flying to Scotland on an RAF aircraft.

On Sunday, Mr and Mrs Blair flew by helicopter to Edinburgh airport, where they boarded a plane to China. Meanwhile, the RAF plane returned from Aberdeen airport to London, carrying at least one of the Blairs' children and members of his entourage.

The Royal Squadron - formerly the Queen's Flight - is nominally controlled by the sovereign but routinely used by government ministers.

Earlier this year, the Blairs used it to travel to Egypt for a holiday and, although they made a contribution to the cost, the final bill to the taxpayer was £30,000.

Chris Grayling, the shadow leader of the House of Commons, who has investigated the Prime Minister's use of the Royal Squadron, said that events at the weekend would focus renewed attention on the issue.

"This raises further questions about the Blair family's use of the Queen's Flight," he said.

"If an RAF aircraft was kept waiting in Scotland solely for the use of members of the Prime Minister's family, people will rightly want to know why.

"Downing Street needs to provide a proper explanation as to how this happened."

The SNP and the Liberal Democrats also said that the flight could raise questions.

A spokeswoman for Mr Blair insisted the flight had been "entirely legitimate".

"The Queen's invitation to Balmoral extended to the entire Blair family, and that included flights to and from London on the Royal Squadron," she said.

"Therefore, all of the members of the Blair family who were at Balmoral were there as official guests and entitled to use the Royal Squadron."

These people are evil - there is no other word.

Labour was accused last night of a smear campaign against the BBC presenter John Humphrys after a Downing Street official admitted he had passed to a newspaper details of a speech by Humphrys attacking senior Labour politicians.
Tim Allan, a long-time colleague of the prime minister recently courted by Tony Blair to be his director of communications, conceded last night that he had passed a transcript of the speech to the Times.

In the speech to the Commercial Directors Forum on June 8, Humphrys criticised Mr Blair, Gordon Brown, John Prescott, Peter Mandelson and Alastair Campbell. But he claimed that he had never implied that all ministers were liars, as he said the Times report suggested.
Mr Allan was revealed as the source of the Times story after Richmond Events, which organised the event, said he had been the only recipient of a video and transcript of the speech.

Mr Allan denied that he had broken any agreement by passing the tape to the Times.

He said last night: "Mr Humphrys' speech was given at a public event and I did nothing other than any journalist could have done in asking for a copy."

He insisted that no arrangement had been reached with the company about what he would do with the tape.

Mr Allan runs a PR firm and has never denied that he is critical of British journalism, especially the BBC's performance over allegations that Mr Blair had lied about the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Humphrys has never denied that the remarks reported in the Times were an accurate description of his speech, save to say that he never claimed that all ministers were liars.

Mr Allan was alerted to Humphrys' remarks when he received a flyer from the forum inviting him to an event in the future which cited some of Humphrys' remarks at the June 8 meeting. He said he rang the company to check that the remarks were accurate and it left a copy of the tape for him in its reception.

Michael Grade, the chairman of the BBC, has asked the corporation's director general, Mark Thompson, for a transcript of Humphrys' remarks.

In his after-dinner speech Humphrys described the former director of communications in Downing Street, Mr Campbell, of being a malevolent force, and ridiculed Mr Mandelson, the EU trade commissioner.

Well our democratic system legally (in the post part) permitted this government in. The electorate deserves its leaders, just like to Bethnal Green deserves George Galloway.


Labour scum, Tory scum, Lib Dem scum. This is however something out of Soviet Russia, conducting a smear campaign and dirty tricks. I believe this speech happened THREE MONTHS AGO

Two hurt during Blair China trip

The van was in the prime minister's convoy to the airport

A Downing Street aide and a British journalist have been taken to hospital after a mini van in Tony Blair's convoy in China overturned on a motorway.

No 10 says press officer Ian Gleason hurt his shoulder in the accident.

And Press Association political editor Jon Smith broke his collar bone, although he has now left hospital.

Mr Blair continued to the airport to leave for the Indian leg of his trip to the Far East. His vehicle was not affected by the crash.

But Kirsty Wigglesworth, an Associated Press photographer who was aboard the minibus, said it was travelling at about 70mph when a tyre apparently punctured.

The van rolled over and slid along the road, before stopping on the hard shoulder.

In a statement, Downing Street said: "Jon Smith of the Press Association is concussed and has been taken to hospital. He is not seriously hurt.

"Ian Gleason, a Downing Street aide, has hurt his shoulder and has also been taken to hospital. They are accompanied by British Embassy staff."

The Press Association later reported Mr Smith's broken bone.

Everyone should stop bashing Blair. He's not great but he's the best we've got at the moment.
Which very nicely sums up just how bank (and cor)rupt the system of gobment is in the UK.
All those hundreds of years of so-called parliamentary democracy and Phoney Tony is the best it can do!

Btw, I dislike mr.Putin (our president). Recently I met him. From close distance he is even more bleak and colourless than on TV screen. Unlike great leader of British people, mr.Putin is not excellently educated, he (mr.Putin, not mr.Blair of course) uses vulgar words, his vocabular is quite bounded. Very frequently he uses cheap PR moves (stupid and tasteless).

As to mr.Blair then he is at least one of the best British politicians, experienced and still young PM, good husband and father. Mr.Blair is a good example for young lads who enter real life.

Mistakes? Show me even one who hasn't made them. Manipulations with truth? Something that politicians uses to do. Could anyone swear that mr.Howard (for example) would be absolutely honest? I suspect that nobody (except mr.Howard himself).

Experienced only in lying, misleading and freeloading. He practices blatant cronyism, and allows unelected advisers too much power.

Mr.Blair is a good example for young lads who enter real life.
...provided the 'young lads' want to become bottom-feeding lawyers lying and cheating their way to becoming champagne socialists.


I suspect you need to visit the polyklinik to have your medication reviewed - you are clearly delusional.

Of course it was legitimate ....... President Blair said so, so it must be!!!! but its nice of him to let the Queen use 'his' Royal Flight sometimes when his families not flying!!!!

just a thought.... Shame the crew dont have Martin-Baker Seats, could well be the best pulled handle ever.... just luv to see the slime bag wriggle outta that!!

I'm involved in the big NHS regrading effort called Agenda For Change at present. The crap pay some people are on is enough to make you cry. And they have to put up with aggro from irate patients, mental cases, alcies, druggies you name it. Then you get the Bliars with their aristocratic waste of £30,000 on one aircraft flight.

Then I suppose this is nothing compared to the ordinance bill for Iraq.

Am I the only one to spot the irony of people complaining about an elected freeloader using, at taxpayers' expense, a fleet of aircraft provided for an unelected freeloader at taxpayers' expense?

Just thought I'd ask.
 
#20
Suddenly the media are to be trusted?

Anyone care to offer a breakdown of the £30,000 cost for a plane that already existed, flown by crew that were being paid anyway? Anyone willing to explain how actually using an aircraft that the public is paying for 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, is an excess?
