I began the day, reduced to watching the banality that is BBC Breakfast. Most of the programme was about SNOW…with pictures of people, like plague victims, lying on the airport concourse, wearing what appeared to be bacofoil…. prompting me to tweet that if “You want to get the full HEATHROW experience….at home… sit on your floor… get the bacofoil out and wait for a BBC film crew to turn up.”
Then along came Mr Hammond, the TORY Transport Minister, who decided he didn’t need to read an experts’ report on SNOW commissioned by the previous government, but would consult his own expert so ‘lessons could be learned…yada yada blah.’ Iain Dale (who appears to have blogged more since his retirement from blogging than he did in the weeks preceding his Moses Moment on twitter when he announced his ‘departure from Blogging Gate 20′) …. mused on twitter…that Mr Hammond had the makings of a future Prime Minister. I do…so… love pantomime and comic opera at this time of year.
I could not help myself with the tweet above…. The Tory-led Coalition has blamed Labour for everything else since grasping power with the running dog Kim Il Clegg…. and his sidekick Vince CableTV … that I thought it only fair that the previous Labour government should be blamed for the fiasco that is Heathrow today…
That is all. I shall return tomorrow with Day 21….. ineluctably.
