I blame Gordon Brown...

A temperature of 28.6 Centigrade at Cranwell was a UK record for this year, according to the Lincs Echo.

For us oldies, in real money 28.6 translates to somewhere in the mid-eighties.

I knew Lincolnshire's hot, but that's boiling!

The Prime Minister is of course on holiday in neighbouring Norfolk: And as he seems to be getting slated for everything under the sun, he's no doubt also to blame for the weather!

Geoffrey G Brooking said...

Oh yes.

In actual fact I have got a lot of money on Miliband to be the next Labour Leader.

Cheer him on for me!

Labour are at War and this time its Civil war.

Yesterday Stephen Byers re-ignited the debate with a stark warning in the Sunday Mirror that Labour "desperately needs new policies" to stave off a crushing defeat at the next election.

Mr Byers said that "Labour has a mountain to climb and desperately needs policies that will change the political weather."

Meanwhile Peter Kilfoyle warned: "The present situation is untenable and the party has to put up or shut up."

And what's more it rumoured that Frank Field is set to publish a "devastating dossier" on Gordon Brown's record in power.

In the words of one unnamed former minister "Mr Brown's back is against the wall because the party has become more obsessed with the leadership than with running the country!"
