Lady T didn't want fly-past

Published 12/04/2013 | 04:20

The Iron Lady thought a fly-past at her funeral a waste of money. Yet, in spite of the chancellor's seeking further cuts, four RAF Typhoon aircraft have flown 7,000 miles to Malaysia for a display.

Air marshals should listen to Lady T's message and cancel RAF air displays. Disbanding the Red Arrow teams would save £10m a year.
