Double, so you know more about my motives than I do.

If I don't do things only for self satisfaction what is your explanation of why I do these things ?

I have always been opposed to fuel taxes being used to cover aviation regulatory costs as they hide the real costs.

But astute bureaucrats know they get far less flack from a hidden tax compared to direct charging.

It's our dopey industry that allows this to happen by vocally objecting to any transparent charge but saying very little when a tax is increased- and that's clearly what happened!
