    Ah well, more working from home then!

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Of all of the papers to take advice about the weather from, the Daily Express is the worst. They don't go with what the met office is saying, or even what the actual weather is doing, but rather take their news from "Jonathan Powell from Vantage Weather Services". This guy is consistent in his predictions, consistently wrong. The amount of record breaking cold winters/hot summers that this guy predicted, but failed to materialise, are far too many for a national newspaper to STILL use his services.

    No one knows with any accuracy what the weather is going to do in 3 weeks, never minds 3 months.

    These newspaper stories are always bullshit.

    Get set for some postponements then! They always exaggerate anyway, never quite as bad as that

    I predict that the bulk of the snow will probably fall over the high ground - Snowdonia, Pennines, Lakeland Fells, and the Cairngorms.

    Snow in London = life comes to a standstill and it is headline news.
    Snow in the farmlands = life goes on as normal and no one cares.

    And in another paper the first of ten of the hottest. A "Sources say" story usually means we are gonna make up any old shit to fill the paper.

    Paul Ince should be consulted on the approved colour of any snow falling.

    Coldplay have confirmed it will be 'Snow, white snow'.

    Thanks for that Coldplay, I had previously believed snow to be pink.
