However gorgeous George may be (each unto his own personal tates, I guess), worth remembering that he did permit the duty for short haul economy flights to be raised by £1 to £12 last November and by more for longer routes.

The talk of a tax on flights by private planes is certainly not aimed at the “common man” (whoever this person actually is) and would be a fair way of closing a crazy loophole – no tax on aviation fuel or on the actual flights themselves for corporate or leisure travel of this nature is crazy.
