News: The weather
As the Guardian blogged, there is nothing like a cold snap to bring out the cliches... News stories this past week will feature at least one of the following:
- Talking about the winter spirit that evokes memories of the blitz. Since when is Jack Frost a Nazi?
- There really is community spirit after all... Although this only occurs after people realise the government is not going to do something for them first...
- Fear of running out of grit. Birmingham will run out in 48 hours. Death will ensue after.
- Take matters into your own hands and clear a pavement. And then you will be sued.
Oh and BBC weather reporters must have a dress code for crumpled or ill-fitting suits... Won't somebody think of the dry cleaners?
