Earlier this week I was amused by a couple of weather forecasts on Auntie Beeb: the national forecast (meaning the London forecast) told us gloomily that the weather had taken a turn for the worse, and temperatures were down to a cold and unpleasant 10C.
Soon after that we had the local news and weather. In this part of the world the weather was cooler than in previous days, but thankfully still a mild 10C. On mentioning this discrepancy at work, a colleague remarked it just showed what "glass half full" people we were in the North.
So take that M Python! Apologies – there appear to be Dutch sub-titles…zo es het.
