I nearly dropped my deep fried pizza supper when I read the following from the BBC news site's 'live' volcanic ash updates.
1300 From the BBC's Kirsten Campbell at the Scottish Parliament: Scotland's First Minister has set up an emergency response group to deal with the volcanic ash incident and the resultant disruption to Scottish airports. Alex Salmond will chair a meeting of what's called the Scottish Government Resilience Room. Ministers and officials will gather this morning and then again this afternoon to discuss arrangements to deal with the situation.
As I look out of my window, (I'm thought of as quite well to do in Kilmarnock as my house has windows made of glass rather than the standard plywood), I see a clear, blue sky as far as the eye can see. And what the fuck is a 'resilience room'? Sounds like some sort of sex dungeon for masochists.
I suppose having a meeting is better than doing nothing at all. Oh, wait...
