Hence the anti-Boris section of the population want to use it for a bit of Boris Bashing and that's only to be expected, surely? The mainstream media are certainly unlikely to broadcast anything that would calm the fuss by reporting the facts.
But it won't be the spare. It is the one with the VIP fit, and which is a permanent part of the RAF fleet as it is often required for that role.
