Political Volcanic Ash

Ok. I am not a great one for politics. As far as i can see, they all give with one hand, take away with the other and at the end of it all, it just comes down to who has the ability to take the insults the best. Anyway, this morning a Tory politician is being interviewed on the beeb, about the decision to reopen airspace and allow flights to take off and land again. There she was, laying into the government, about how they acted in haste, shutting down airspace, based on evidence which was now proven to be wrong. Now, excuse me if i appear to come across as a labour supporter here, which is not the case, but if a plane had flown, into the ash cloud, and crashed, the government would have been lynched for not grounding everything. So, they ground everything, based on the best available advice, and now they are being accused of jumping the gun and over reacting. Well, you are damned if you do, and you are damned if you dont.
Rant over.

Am reading a Mark Billingham book at the moment. Called Blood Line. havent read much, but is quite good.


  1. OK, this is exactly what I knew would happen, and yet it still infuriates me. I'm waiting for them to figure out a way to make the actual volcanic explosion Labour's fault too. Maybe by the weekend....

    Love the blog! Like peeking inside yr brain.

  2. Mad isnt it? Both the politicaling, and the inside of my brain......some things never change :-)
