Crikey, what's happening to the world?

OK, so the UK is still reeling from a recession. Now we have a hung parliament and the rather unappealing prospect of a Tory/Lib Dem coalition government. This is scary enough on its own without natural disasters being thrown into the mix.

Thanks to Muslim women not wearing the veil, according to a rather loopy Iran cleric, earthquakes have started happening as a result. Perhaps we also have teenage boys getting their jollies on web cams to thank for the volcano in Iceland.

If that wasn’t bad enough we now have an oil spill in Louisiana to deal with. What’s next? Is someone going to accidentally drop a trident missile? Is this never ending cold weather going to turn into an ice age and wipe out all life on the planet? Is a meteor going to hit the earth? Is Mount Yellowstone going off?

If you read the Daily Mail, I suspect the answer is categorically yes to all of the above. Nevertheless, it’s fair to say that it’s not been a good few months.

What do you think about some of the above? Get on your Soapbox and have your say!
