Australians Instructed To Use The Term “Illegal Aeronautical Arrivals”

political expenses

Australians have been told they will now need to refer to trips taken by politicians to visit investment properties or attend weddings as ‘illegal aeronautical arrivals’, rather than ‘genuine parliamentary business’.

It is believed the directive has come in the interest of calling a spade a spade and not engaging in some sort of clever language to mask anything.

    Surely, while the politicians are on the plane they should be referred to as detainees, not passengers.

      And flight attendants should be “Security Personnel”.
