I see that Nanny has issued one of her regular warnings about something that we need to be afraid of, lest we "risk our health" ignoring her.
This time Nanny is telling parents to keep babies and young children indoors, as our ever "accurate" and "world class" weather forecasters predict that temperatures will rise to the high 20's or beyond.
My gosh, how do people who live in places such as India, Africa and the Med ever cope with temperatures that go way beyond that???
For good measure Nanny also warned people over 75, and people with heart problems, not to go out as well.
Hospitals have been put on standby to deal with sunstroke victims, as the Met Office issued its first ever heatwave warning amid fears that it could become "dangerously" hot and humid.
OK folks, here are a few factoids:
1 High 20's low 30's is not that excessive, try living in eg Africa, India or eg Beijing/Seoul in the summer if you want to experience real heat/humidity.
2 We pay carbon tax, which is allegedly being used to reduce "global warming", let us now get value for money for that tax by enjoying the heat.
3 This is just part of Nanny's "global warming" scare story strategy, designed to justify her raising taxes even more.
4 Why does Nanny not also warn parents about the dangers of taking their kids to hot countries (eg Spain) for their holidays?
5 When have the weather forecasts ever really been that accurate? It is high time forecasters were fined for misleading forecasts, then we would see a change in attitude!
In short, make the most of any sun or heat that comes our way; Nanny Brown's Britain is a pretty damp and miserable place normally.
Remember, we managed to run an Empire in some of the hottest parts of the world with little more than a pith helmet and a bottle of gin. Nanny, had she been around then, would never have even let us board the ferry at Dover.
