Heat wave alert.

A heat wave alert for 28˚C? Don't be so fucking silly. Come down here in February and fucking find out what hot is. We've hit 40˚C at least once every year since we've lived here, and funnily enough people just get on with it. I expect more electricity gets used to run air conditioners and Evian sales go up, and all without the nanny state's help.

But no, not in the UK. The streets would be full of bodies without this essential advice:
  • Close curtains on windows exposed to sun if temperature outside is higher than inside
  • Open windows when temperature outside drops lower than it is inside
  • Water plants, and spray ground outside windows with water to help cool air
  • Those at risk should stay out of the sun, especially between 11am and 3pm

Look you fucking pricks, people know what to do without you telling them.

See? Three middle aged men who are famous largely for how rarely they act like adults understand it. Now the heat's died down a bit and the usual type of British summer weather - overcast and pissing down - I suppose they'll be telling everyone to use umbrellas and raincoats.

Fuck off you loathsome nannying twats.
