New British airport to cost more than $100,000 a person
According to International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell, the UK has an "obligation" to this British Overseas Territory to build a new airport. In the long run, the country's ministers believe that an airport would be a better budgetary move, even though the last Labour Government scrapped the notion.
Fortunately for the folks on St Helena, the rest of the UK's taxpayers will be pitching in some cash.
