Krakatoa East of Gatwick II


I realise that I may now be sounding like a scratched record on this subject. However, this ongoing incident has so clearly highlighted how schizophrenic and easily swayed Nanny and the media are (ie they are clueless).

Initially safety was the watch word.

All flights banned.

Then comes the baying and moaning from the Brits abroad (who regard 3 holidays a year as part of their national right), about how disgraceful it is that they are stranded in sunny climes.

The media, ever keen to change tack in order to keep a story running, then says that the health and safety issue is overplayed.

Airlines run a few test flights, and pronounce that everything is safe.

Nanny, in the middle of a general election (and worried about looking useless), sends three warships to Europe to rescue our "brave" British holidaymakers.

European heads of travel finally (some days after the event) pick up their video phones and realise that they look incompetent. They authorise the gradual unlocking of the skies of Europe.

Hoorah!!??

Wait until a plane crashes, then we will see the self same media scream that not enough was done to protect people!

The wheel of life turns full circle and strafes our buttocks!

  1. I just wonder if Gormless is making political capital out of the crisis, just like the arsonist fireman that helps put the fire out to appear a hero.

    For why Tonk?....I hear you ask.

    Well, I have been looking at the site recommended by Bucko that shows aircraft movement and the dust cloud....France etc, we were told, had a no fly zone in place the same as us....A diktat from some branch or other of the EU....I saw yesterday, and the previous evening, that there was much commercial air traffic over the "no fly" zone over France etc but nothing over the UK.
    Last night on the ITN news, it was stated that there was no need for the Royal Navy to get involved, as there was increased capacity on ferries and the train which could easily handle the repatriation of the crying Brits.....I wonder therefore, if the government has merely engaged in a bit of electioneering during this run up to the general election?
    "Look at me, I've saved the world now I am the hero again."....Or am I just being cynical.....?

    Okay, Ken - all fair points, but pull yourself off the fence for a minute, what was the right approach from the beginning?

    Or is this just a chance to have a go at the whinging pom that Aussies dearly love to poke fun at?

  3. I don’t think that it is too difficult for the government to fool the British public with some electioneering stunts.

    A short TV debate and everyone is cooing about how wonderful the Liberal Democrat leader is. It makes not the slightest difference what his policies are, he came over better than the other two, so we shall vote for him!

    I am honestly having doubts about Cameron though. He is opposing an unelected, disliked and, quite frankly, odious Gordon Brown, who has proved himself to be a liar and is in charge of perhaps the most corrupt government ever seen, and Cameron is making absolutely no headway at all.

    He should have kicked this one eyed, fat, ignorant, Scottish bastard into touch by now.

    If the Conservatives cannot get into power over that shower of shit, they really have pissed on their chips.

  4. Gary;

    I agree with you.....Sadly, under Mr Cameron we no longer have a Conservative Party to vote for....Just Blue Labour!!!

    We should be ahead in the polls by miles given the mess Mr Brown et al has made of things....A reversde midas touch; Every thing he touches turns to soft brown stuff.

    If Mr Cameron kept to real Conservative policies and beliefs, such as a small state, lower taxes and healthy doubts about the EUSSR, I suspect he would be miles ahead, as we should be.

    I have a very good local MP in Mr John Redwood, where I am stuck between a rock and a hard place is, that by voting for John, by implecation I support Mr Cameron....I shall vote for JR but doing so for the reasons previously stated, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth and, I suspect, many other real Conservatives may well feel the same.

    I am not on the fence.

    Read my original post on the subject and you will see I said I was 100% behind the ban.

    When scientific evidence proves that the flights are now safe, then fly.

    Nanny has not been as proactive as she could have been in gathering the data.

    As for sending the navy out to rescue holidaymakers from a non war/non disaster zone...

    Where have I sat on the fence on this?

    Sorry Ken, your last post was unclear on whether or not you supported the ban.

    Or at least it was to my simple mind. :)

    "Then comes the baying and moaning from the Brits abroad (who regard 3 holidays a year as part of their national right), about how disgraceful it is that they are stranded in sunny climes."

    My heart bleeds for them, Ken: perhaps they would rather have been stranded somewhere like Siberia, Antarctica or maybe, a war zone such as Afghanistan?

    "Wait until a plane crashes, then we will see the self same media scream that not enough was done to protect people!"

    Not to mention those on the ground too if, Heaven forbid, the crash happens in the middle of a town or city during the day: in that eventuality, the loss of life might well be really horrendous (although even a single unnecessary death is horrific in my opinion). If just one plane should crash, with the inevitable loss of life, the directors of the airline ought, in my humble opinion, to be charged with corporate manslaughter. Let's face it, an airborn jumbo jet on which all the engines have cut out
    is simply a flying bomb!

    I saw this too, and I am inclined to agree with you: it is a golden opportunity for our illustrious leader to divert attention away from the real issues during this election.

    I quite agree.

    I certainly do feel so. I shall be voting UKIP if there is a candidate from that party standing in my constituency. I just cannot forgive Cameron for welching on his promise to give us a vote on the Lisbon Treaty (just like the other main party leaders) and disagree with some other policies of his too. I support your assessment of John Redwood: he is one of the few good Conservative MPs at present.

  9. Not that I wish harm on anyone, but all this might teach the aforementioned bleating holidaymakers not to be so irritatingly blase about their "travels" - and even stop treating the big wide wonderful world like a back door to Britain!
