Tales from a volcano

Crikey readers weigh in on airlines and volcanos. Is it so bad that aeroplane transport has stopped? Plus, thoughts on COAG, states and the death of Carl Williams. Oh, and the Pirate Party.

Volcanos, airlines et al:

Robert Johnson in Namibia writes: Re. “Adonis, Cobra, Elle? just pass the (volcanic) ash tray and enjoy the sunshine” (yesterday, item 14). I’m sure Rafiq Copeland’s inability to get the Britain’s Next Top Model tapes from Malaysia back to London is widely lamented. Some things have been able to still fly in to Europe, though.

    @Warwick, the interesting thing to find out would be whether they ran engine 4 between Indonesia and London, or just ‘carried’ it.

    @Alan, carrying your football analogy a bit further, some states need to be relegated – to being territories?

    @Verity: Yes, but discrediting Conroy’s filter is a worthwhile achievement. We don’t really want to deal with having to remove things from the ‘refused classification’ list until it becomes absolutely necessary.

    @Andrew: Was a cunning stunt to mention that.

    Alan Kennedy is a [email protected]#%ing freak.

    A bit of fire and brimstone, eh Al. Sink the boats for Jesus, and all that?

    “Bring on the revolution. Mr Rudd tear down these parliaments.”

    It’s probably no coincidence that some super-aggro conservatives like Alan — who so obviously always vote Liberal regardless — refer to metaphorical baseball bats even though they do not actually play the sport.

    From the bile-spewing vitriol that is his letter it sounds like Al keeps his bat close to the bed at night, and has no problem with the concept of rough justice.
