Nobody Expects

It is easy to forget, in the hustle and bustle of an election campaign, that although Parliament has been dissolved there is still an administration running the country.

I would imagine, if there was anyone still doing any thinking in the government, that a contingency plan was drawn up as to what to do in the event of a major, national emergency during the campaign. You know; train crash, terrorism, outbreak of flu-scare or animal disease. That sort of thing.

Would anyone, anyone, have come up with the idea that a volcano in Iceland would cause us bother?

To stand for political office is to be ready to be in charge when that-which-we-didn't-expect happens. Good luck candidates.

'...what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?' (Psalm 8:4)
