Well, I'm no spring chicken but I can honestly say I can't recall a more anti-aviation government than this one. At least, not since the Wilson administration of the late 1960's introduced the 25 per pax limit on the amount of currency that could be taken abroad (per year if my memory is right), which played a big part in the demise of British Eagle.

If the Dutch government (historically one of the world's greenest) can see the folly of what was a much lower rate of Dutch APD, and abolish it, then HMG should take note. I suspect the lingering influence of Zac Goldsmith here.
