Royal Yacht - value for money



We, the editorial team, are moved by a letter from a certain Christopher Booker to The Daily Telegraph today who comments on the recent discussion about the Royal Yacht. Our favourite columnist notes that the sum quoted to replace it when it was decided to scrap Britannia in 1997 was £60 million.

This, Booker points out, would have cost us less than we now pay every two days into the EU budget (£70 million), and is less than the cost of one Eurofighter (£65 million). Which of these three projects, he asks, would have given the taxpayers best value for money?

Answers in the section below please.

That is a much better picture of The Royal Yacht.
