PVC windows, plastering reveals

I recently had to replace hinges on PVC windows.

After hinges were replaced and windows put back in, it became obvious that it is impossible to make any adjustments as windows are to close to the walls.
To make things worse window has been installed in such a silly way that plasterboard partially covers top hinge.

As plasterboard was damaged due to moisture anyway I removed a little extra to make adjustments a little easier and check how many layers of plaster board were there.

Anyway, as any further adjustments may be necessary in the future and will be impossible without removing the window first, wouldn't it make more sense to do away with the plasterboard and apply plaster directly onto the bricks?
Only problem I can see is all this plastic that plaster may not adhere to.

Any advice would be appreciated.
