Mad Dogs and Englishmen
I am gemused to see that as Britain "basks" for a few days in temperatures barely reaching 28 degrees (as other countries face 40 degrees or more), Nanny has rushed to warn us all of the dangers of heat.
Not just the basic warnings about sunstroke, dehydration and sunburn but loads of other hazards associated with sunshine eg:
- fire services have warned about fire hazards and burn hazards emanating from BBQ's
- ambulance services have warned about the dangers of drinking too much booze
- the NHS has warned about the dangers of food poisoning from undercooked BBQ food
- the RNLI have warned about the dangers of swimming etc etc
I wonder how it is as a nation we ever survived previous summers?
I am old enough to remember the great drought of 1976, the nation managed to get through that unscathed; I am sure that we can just about survive the next few days of modestly warm temperatures!
