The view from Iceland when the cloud passed

In a frank admission from the Icelandic government, the Minister for the Environment, Ban Kruptdotter, apologised to airports in the United Kingdom for any disruption caused by the ash or by extremely high prices in the shops at British airports.

While meteorological experts were predicting aircraft engine mayhem, the minister admitted that the problem is related to the Icelandic economy, which at the moment is on the brink of one step worse than bankrupt.

He went on to say that with prices spiralling, there has been a total glut of hundreds and hundreds of thousands of packets of illegal cigarettes that the population are buying and smoking to excess.

This has resulted in a huge ash cloud over Reykjavik that has been moving slowly across the north Atlantic for the past three weeks. He said that the Icelandic government were too embarrassed by the situation and claimed that it was a volcano.

As a result of the situation, Michael O'Leary of RyanAir is currently looking for something else to charge his passengers for that's not mentioned until you press the "pay" button.
