Dear Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left.
Signed, Liam Byrne

It'll be hot.

the country really is on course for a barbecue summer
So say the people at Positive Weather Solutions, who have managed to be more accurate than the Met Office over the last two years.

Barbecues would be nice, no? Balmy evenings spent in the garden, clutching an overcooked beefburger and a glass of tepid wine? What could be more British?

But, you've got to be 'on message' these days, so Jim from Rennes in France carefully warns that
barbeques are extremely cancerous. So is sunbathing.
Look Jim, we know we're likely to get rusty this summer, so why don't you just go away and annoy the locals.
