Hot, hot, hot...

There's a national emergency, we've got the first ever 'Red' hot weather warning, COBRA have had several meetings and experts have said 'thousands may die' even amongst the fit and healthy. 

We're not very good at the hot or the cold in this country are we! 

I wonder what being in a national emergency will involve? Will the Army be drafted in with parasols and bottles of water?

I don't mind the new system of weather warnings but the constant drip of patronising advise from weather forecasters etc.......(EG. 'If it is safe to do so, open a window in your bedroom tonight') is ill-conceived and, in the long term, leads to the population not thinking for itself.

More importantly, on a car forum, I would suggest putting on car covers if your wagon is outside. I am certainly pleased to have my Covercraft sunshade for the Evora.

Is it humid as well over there at the moment?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

55% here, not really. It's heat coming up from over Africa I think so will be dry during the hottest spells too.

According to the forecast for the Highlands it's going to be 23c on Monday and 27c on Tuesday, a far cry from the 40c predicted for London and the south.

I'd be concerned about wildfires with it being so hot and dry, people forget how easy they start.

This was from last Monday on Salisbury plain. I don’t know if it was started intentionally or accidentally.

The fires began on Monday partly due to live firing exercises, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said and its helicopter was deployed earlier to further dampen down any hot spots and review the area

Agree with you Jep. We've become a nation of wimps led by a bunch of patronising tossers ! We must be the laughing stock of Europe and the rest of the world 🤔

It's not just the UK, over here and the rest of (western) EU it's just as bad if not worse. 😞

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

You really think we're any worse than anywhere else? France, Spain, Italy, Australia all have Governments (and police) that are far more controlling than here in the UK 

From your posts you really seem to hate this country. Have you thought about moving somewhere where you will be happier? Just a thought.

Its hot, yes, but only for a couple of days. I'm not sure I see how it warrants a national emergency or (more annoyingly) news headlines that 'thousands could die'. By that measure there can't be many people left alive in countries where 40 degrees is routine...

36 degrees - if it is low humidity - is really not difficult to manage. Just sweat a little and you cool off naturally. Or take a shower... Job done.

Here (Brisbane, Australia) we get 36 degrees in summer with 85% humidity or more - and it often only falls to 25-28 degrees minimum at night... Oh the fun!

Surely if thousands die because they ignore advice like "Drink plenty of liquids, wear a hat, don't spend too long in the sun" then it can be classed as natural selection!

Totally agree. But please can we add all the other fcukwitterry that stupid people get up to to that list as well?  We need more natural selection as too many stupid people are living longer than they should.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!
