King Canute reveals limits to his power

"No politician in Europe is able to stop a volcano exploding"

Although I'm open to the idea that the whole Icelandic Ash Cloud story has been a massive 'Elf'n'Safety' over-reaction by jobsworth regulators, it might still prove a genuine reasonable safety precaution. However, it was interesting this morning to hear Gordon Brown reveal the limits of his powers, on the Andrew Marr show, when he actually admitted that even politicians couldn't stop a volcano from exploding. (Yes, I'm afraid it's true. The Godhead of the British State actually stated that he had limits to his powers.)

So, our Great Leader and Teacher of the Nation, the Benevolent Friend of Children, the Mountain Trojan of Caledonia, the Greatest Genius of Our Times, the Titan of the Global Economy, the Best Disciple of the Human Spirit, the Most Profound Theoretician of Modern Times, is not omnipotent nor omniscient after all?

Cor, lumme, guv, who would have Adam and Eved it!

Thanks for letting us know, Gordon. For a moment there I thought you were just resting and testing our resolve before you decided to blow it out with one mighty super breath.
