Yes if you can live with yourself after buying from that utterly vile company.

The people who ought to be sent to the Colonies for Penal stays are the ones that read the Grauniad. At least readers of the Wail are, so they think, sensible.

And, er, am I allowed to say that I do not like the posters?

Given that - despite posting in the ‘Bag 10cm too big’ thread (where there were multiple references to purchasing a bag from Amazon) - you didn’t condemn any of the posters there for doing business with ‘that utterly vile company’ I’m feeling somewhat persecuted.

Ignoring the calumnies cast upon the DM, I’m surprised there’s been no comment about the posters (the airline posters!).

I thought sharing the cocktail cherry on the VC10 was quite sweet

You're allowed to, but please explain your thesis.

Personally, I like them, especially the posters that have the Civil Air Ensign flying from the aircraft (and the tender). I have a Civil Air Ensign above my desk, and I enjoy seeing other examples.

I already have the Mapping the Airways book in the series - this new one is going on my Amazon wishlist.

Because the Telegraph is such a positive influence on society with hateful, xenophobic and downright incorrect reporting
