And now for the volcanic ash denialists

You can hear the murmurs already. Where's the research, the evidence, that Europe had to close down its air space all because of some piffling volcano in Iceland? An Italian on Radio 4's Today this morning blustered against the "theoretical models" that caused airports and airlines to shut up shop. Told that a Met Office plane had encountered  dangerous levels of ash, he said he knew nothing of it. So let's ignore it?

Any minute now Andrew Neil will be galvanising the idiotic Spectator kids to cast doubt on the existence of the volcanic ash or its destructive effect.

These self-described "contrarians" will also be doubling as the climate change denialists who've gone quiet since the scientists at East Anglia University were cleared of misrepresenting research on global temperatures.  It's curious how the Church of Science has bred a new generation of secular flock uninterested in objective evidence. You can see in motion how religions spark to life.

No doubt Brendan O'Neill is writing a piece for Comment Is Free as we speak.

Don't give him ideas.

You're sooo drole.

I'm surprised you didn't write: "The cock-shaped, Kevin Spacey-loving volcanic ash clouds... "

Madame A - have you forsaken Twitter completely?

Re your post - anything that can strip the paint off a jumbo jet is not to be flown through.

Dear Alison, No, I'm on as Madame_Arcati now. The Madamearcati69 account was blocked by cunting Twitter in their attempt to re-activate M_A. At least I have 900 followers, just over a million fewer than Spacey, bless 'im.

You're such a style queen Arcati, everything's trend. Though you're right about these fag ash peeps.

I wonder how long before the global warming cultists, pronounce that this volcanic eruption is proof of their global warming theroy. Then they will smite down anyone who dares question their wisdom...
Come on madame, give us a pithy 500 words on how Nick Cleggs choice of dental floss, means that the general election is a forgone conclusion.

Perhaps some of the gentlemen mentioned in the labels of this post could be induced for the sake of the nation to take a jumbo test flight through "The cock-shaped, Kevin Spacey-loving volcanic ash clouds... "
Depending on the result could make an entertaining slot for This Week.

I try to avoid use of slug pellets.

Madame Arcati said...

I don't think British politicians use dental floss, far too effete.

Madame Arcati said...

I love the idea of Neil et al boarding a volcanic ash-bound plane and perhaps getting stacked round the "mouth of hell" in Iceland.

They use surplus rope from the Armey and Navy stores. Do you think SamCam likes a bit of bondage?

Can't see it myself. But I imagine her at Sound of Music karaoke parties.

I hate Andrew Neil so much...it's scary...

Madame Arcati said...

He was very bullish towards some squirt leader of the Libertarian party the other day on his Politics show. Seemed a pointless exchange since Neil just interrupted and was entirely dismissive. I have never known anyone to be so consistently wrong on just about everything.

Have you seen the opening sequence to Neil's 'This Week' freak show with Potillo and Diane Abbbot? It's some kind of Wizard of Oz take-off with Neil as Dorothy. The sight of his fright wig and fat arse skipping along is hilariously disturbing.
