In a bold move by the UK government Easyjet owner Stelios announced today that he would soon be taking control of the RAF.

Stelios said 'Cutbacks in UK spending power meant I was able to purchase the RAF at very reasonable price.'

Some of the money saving changes ahead include: Using provincial airports instead of MOD airfields, pilots loading the planes themselves and paying a surcharge for any weapons that don't fit in the cockpit and out sourcing maintenance to Kwik Fit.

Critics have said that planes would be easy for enemies to spot once they've been painted in Easyjets colours but Stelios was at pains to explain that he has only negotiated flight paths to Malaga and Stockholm for his latest acquisition and the chances of the planes entering a warzone depend on whether the pilot has paid the airspace fee.

David Cameron refused to comment on this story.
