2 news items have grabbed my attention!

Over the past couple of days 2 news items have really grabbed my attention:

A volcano in iceland has erupted sending out a huge plume of volcanic ash that has blown south westwards to sit right over the UK!  It means that no airplanes have flown in UK air space for nearly 2 days now!  It’s going to cause havoc for several days even if flights do resume pretty quickly.

The other piece of news is that here in the UK we had our first live tv debate by the leaders of our 3 main political parties


From l-r, David Cameron (Conservative), Gordon Brown (Labour) and Nick Clegg (Liberal Democrats).  I watched the debate and I was quite impressed!  They all behaved very well, and answered the questions properly instead of just slating each others policies.  I thought that Nick Clegg did best, closely followed by David Cameron then Gordon Brown, which coincidentally is what the polls have said!

The Volcano and flight problems is the main headline on our news right now. They've said that flights won't be starting up until at least Sunday - I can only imagine the chaos it is causing at airports over there!!
