Well we have a general election coming up fairly soon.

If anyone from any of the parties turn up on my doorstep canvassing I intend to ask them about their policies with respect to APD and if I don't get the answers I am looking for I will advise them that they will not be getting my vote!

Aviation is being unfairly targeted and we need to get this message across loud and clear.

Recently on Radio Nottingham I put this issue to Kenneth Clarke MP and he babbled on about it not being a time to reduce taxation and, I thought, completely missed the point about people being attracted to AMS or FRA to fly long haul.

I despair of our politicians more and more. WHY should we have to pay more tax on aviation?
