In a show of government overspending in overdrive the Ministry of Defence states it bought the chairs for a discount but refuses to say by how much. The real question is how much of the money actually went to fund black projects.

They have the control of the money from taxpayers, they can buy from business of their relative. Man, that is easy money.

I guess the real value of the chair will be no more than 200. What a deal!

I think there taking pointers from the US you say you pay that much for a chair really pay 150 bucks and pocket the rest for black projects. No one pays 2000 for a chair or a toliet is all a scam.

They're very good though, those Aeron Chairs. They retail at about 600 pounds sterling (about $1000). I know this because I nearly bought one a few months ago!

Very much a status symbol in Soho media-land these days. If they're ordering that many they shouldn't have been paying more than 350 pounds each I'd imagine. Civil servants, bless 'em.

Well you never know if the US is funding black programs or just on a shopping spree cuz we have the money but England doesn't have as much so this must be for a black program unless they are out of their minds it could happen

Sounds like somebodys brother in law owns the chair factory :-)))

Or maybe they dont care how much they spend because they're not paying for it! I dont think they're hidding anything, they just dont care. They've all got fat wallets so they wanted a nice comfortable chair to sit their wallet fat on.

The chair I am sitting in right now in my office was about $1,600.00... I would hope if I bought 3000 of them I would have got a HUGE discount however.

Another case of the people getting the shaft and elite getting the crank with which to turn said shaft.

*pulls out calculator*


Thats... $5572590.00

I find it interesting that it ended up being such an rounded off number... I smell something fishy indeed.

I think I know what chair they are talking about. It is perfect for any government official

or maybe it was this one

This one is funny cuz it was a guy trying to illegally cross the border into the US from Mexico.

Brings another movie quote to mind
!996'S Independence Day

You don't actually think they spend $20,000.00 on a hammer, $30,000.00 on a toilet seat do you?
