Hey we’re just peons to pay for our royal personages, aren’t we?

If the US Airforce did all airline food, it would be strawberries dipped in dark chocolate and grilled chicken salads all round.
Unfortunately this luxury is reserved for top US politicians alone, as new documents detailing Nancy Pelosi’s travel expenses reveal.
The former House Speaker was showered with a cornucopia of gourmet food and alcohol as she travelled over 90,000 miles around the world in just nine months last year – all courtesy of the US Airforce (USAF).
On one overseas excursion, her office even wrote to the USAF asking for strawberries dipped in dark chocolate as a birthday treat.
The documents, uncovered by political corruption watchdog Judicial Watch, reveal that the US taxpayer was billed for $101,429 in Mrs Pelosi’s in-flight services over a period of two years.
