All too convenient for me.
I'm sure that many feel that the whole situation has become blown out of proportion. I don't believe the Met office has much influence as to what happens in Germany,France, Sweden,Holland or any of the other countries that closed their airspace for the same reason as the UK did. And truly again, there's really is nothing like hindsight. Anyone prepared to pay the consequences of one downed aircraft, let alone the number of aircraft needed for the17000 flights a day that were cancelled in Europe. In the light of any further information, I can only assume that this would be RyanAir complaining, on the basis of the number of packets of crisps at 3 euro a pop lost in sales. And if the realtime model is accepted, and the American option of laying the responsibility on the airlines to make their own decisions in these cases, who would I rather trust in that situation, Ryanair or the Met office. The Met office may piss me off, Ryanair wouldn't think twice about killing me or the 350 odd passengers for the chase of a 3 euro packet of crisps.
Still, a nation of whingers, will things improve under the Tories or Liberals, possibly the quality of moaning will improve, but the quantity won't decrease.
