Taxing flights

Much as I enjoy being in foreign countries (anyone who says they enjoy long haul flights is either in first-class or a masochist) I have to admit that I also like things like English Oak forests, East Anglia, beaches etc. So... perhaps my days of flying to foreign conferences should soon be rather diminished. So I'm rather pleased that the Tory leader has said he'd be prepared to raise taxes on aviation. Ideally all the leaders of the main parties should announce *before* the next election that taxes on aviation will go up on day one. I won't vote for any party that doesn't promise this - I still think I might have children one day.
