We've had a cracking summer thus far. My garden is crying out for a bit of rain so I won't be complaining.

Torrential showers and 30 degrees???? Oh, no!!!!

Hopefully no-one in Japan, the Phillipines or even The Med is reading this. They will be absolutely killing themselves laughing at poor old Johnny English getting in a tizz about 30 degrees.

How do we cope when we all go on holiday?

Presumably you check the likely temperatures before you go although one thing that always make me chuckle on holiday is people complaining about the heat! If you go to Egypt in July it will be over 40c every day so if you don't like it that hot don't go there......

Do we really need to have this sort of patronising warning and be treated like retards?

Oh dear here we have the gospel according the race of morons using the term 'retard' without even bothering to engage and use any brain cells that they may have ( highly unlikely they have any, I know but not everbody is as ignorant as these prat$)
Excessive and oppressive heat really is not good new for people with certain medical problems, but why waste any media information on
forewarning them as they are most certainly retarded and will
not understand.
I would humbly suggest that you morons keep your bigoted, offensive opinions to yourselves unless you are both capable of time travel, in which case I suggest that you set sail back to Nazi Germany where I am sure your view wil fit in very well.

Moonraker - thank you for taking the time to point out that the word retard is offensive, although it may be wasted on many posters on this site. What was once a medical term for people with learning disabilities is now very often used by thoughtless people to describe someone who is annoying or who holds a different opinion from their own. The use of the word is now no longer appropriate and has gone the way of similar words such as spastic to describe someone with cerebral palsy. When people thoughtlessly use hate language they really only show their own ignorance and bigotry. As usual I expect this post to end up with many thumbs down!

It appears from a bit of misuse of the "quote" function that the word "retard" was written by me. Read back and you'll see it wasn't.

At least the hot weather has now arrived and we won't have to put up with that moron on Heart FM giving it " Thursday and Friday are going to be hotter than Barbados " every half an hour. It's summer, it gets hot occasionally, what's the big deal?!!

Oh dear here we have the gospel according to the race of commentards using the term 'moron' without even bothering to engage and use any brain cells that they may have (highly unlikely they have any I know, but not everbody is as ignorant as these self-righteous ranting imbeciles). People with certain medical problems who are vulnerable to excessive and oppressive heat will of course regularly check weather forecasts throughout the summer and take appropropriate action, rather than sitting waiting for warnings to appear in the local rag. Unless of course they don't possess the intellectual wherewithal for such basic precautions and are happy to allow their health and welfare to depend entirely on the Adver's columnists.
Nor will they require bigoted offensive pompous rant-Nazis to take self-righteous umbrage on their behalf.

Did you see what I did there, themoonraker?
