Thought for the day

"People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity in government, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and if need be, murdering those who resist?" -- H. L. Mencken



Thanks for all the emails and cards!

Typical trolling included terms such as 'it's just summer' and used terms such as 'snowflakes' and the 'woke-brigade', which the Met Office and BBC were accused of spreading alarm.

Examples of trolling included tweets saying: "Oh please. You were obviously never around in 1975/76. Get a grip." Another said: "When will you be apologising for such pathetic, absurd fear mongering nonsense? Or perhaps you should resign in disgrace."
