Choking on a cloud of volcanic politics

So I guess the two biggest topics dominating our news headlines at the moment are the General Election and the chaos caused by the erupting volcano in Iceland.

Now, I could easily write an entire essay on the link between politicians and “smokin’ ash” but I think it would be safer to just point you all in the direction of the two latest entries on the Dadooda Soapbox.

Who do you think will win the General Election? Have you been affected by the volcano? Do you think air travel is safe to resume yet?

  1. Strange as it is, with a very high percentage of Northern European commercial air traffic grounded, due to the risks associated with the ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajokul Volcano, a Major NATO military drill is taking place.

    I have not found any reports of military aircraft involved in the exercise ‘Brilliant Mariner’, being grounded due to the dangers posed to other aircraft.

    It does seem rather strange that while volcanic ash is keeping all commercial aircraft on the ground around the U.K. this exercise is taking place.
