    In addition to the update, are these Government representatives under an obligation to supply substantive reports with the all-important details of their discussions or speeches?

      Hilarious! Are you working on material for a standup comedy act? We are lucky that Ministers only fly first class and do not use private jets.

    “… and foster economic cooperation with the UAE”

    Then why send Minister Hayward? He has demonstrated time and again that he does not possess even the most basic understanding of economics!
