Gordon Brown - Taking Responsibility

There has been a complete lack of leadership from our London masters regarding the volcanic ash over the UK.

Such a difference to the First Minister Alex Salmond who announced at FMQs last Thursday that an emergency group of Scottish government ministers had met at 5.30am that morning. Scotland has felt confident that our government is doing everything possible to monitor and, using their limited powers, keep the public informed.

London politicians did not feel the matter was of much importance and continued to make electioneering their first priority, until yesterday, when aviation businesses started to ask if anyone was in charge of the country. The first official meeting of a group of Westminster ministers and staff was yesterday - 3 days behind the Scottish government.

Do you really want these people to run the UK plc for another 5 years?

Lots of people trapped in Spain blaming the politicians last night.

I wonder if something else was occupying the government though?

From the Times:
A spokesperson from P&O said,

“It might sound attractive to get in an aircraft carrier to take 1,000 people at a time, but we can carry five times that capacity. If anything is needed, it’s a large, purpose-built foot passenger ferry to scoop them all up.
“The lion’s share of the repatriation will be done by professional ferry companies working all along the French coast...'

It's a disgrace the UK government didn't take the matter seriously Bill.

Exactly HG, but Brown has no power left with the likes of P & O. The only power he has left is with our military so he uses them, in fact abuses them because these ships aren't designed for passengers.

He wants to lead this country. It makes me ashamed he's a Scot.
