Picture the scene

On Friday the flight attendants aboard the Eastern Airways Saab 2000 turboprop had thoughtfully stuffed a political magazine into the seat pockets to keep the prime minister and his entourage entertained during the flight from Stansted to Edinburgh. Unfortunately the publication they chose was The Spectator.

This one:


Tee hee. Can you imagine the race around the plane as Brown rampages around, tearing up every copy, while the trolley dolly (only 1 on those planes ISTR) tries to stop him.

Of course, The Times reads more into this than there really is: Eastern have been putting The Spectator in seat pockets for years now.
