What about piloting the country, Bertie?

THE term “keeping up with the Joneses” springs to mind when we discuss Bertie’s Air Bus

If he purchases these fantastic lumps of welded metal, we would be on par with the British, with three jets each. Doesn’t he think the money would be better spend on healthcare or education? And I suppose a compromise is out of the question?

As a young citizen of this country, I hope Bertie Boy is taking into consideration the type of country he will leave behind when his time is up.
