The weather

3 Jul

The weather, as everyone knows, is English people’s favourite topic. The media could be partly to blame for this. I say this because a typical day in Blighty is grey, cloud with drizzle. Weather presenters, news presenters, presenters in general, radio broadcasters and newspaper journalists all talk up any spell of ‘decent’ weather. By ‘decent’ weather I mean a day which has almost no rain, maybe just a sprinkling. It could still be cloudy and barely make it over 20 degrees. I believe (I can hear the conspiracy theorist talking inside of me) that the government instructs all levels of the media to talk up the weather in order to generate more money in the economy. This leads to people getting their hopes up and then becoming frustrated that there are no prolonged periods of good weather.
