Some rain fell over the last few days, leaving millions of Britons in extreme nonchalance. Some people have resorted to getting the bus, or using umbrellas creating widespread minor inconvenience. Yesterday disturbing scenes emerged of children having to redraw their hopscotch grid for a third time.
There is still no official statement from the Prime Minister, however cabinet minister Francis Maude urged people to stockpile towels and paper napkins wherever possible. He has since come under fire, however, when a woman in Penge was so distraught after being caught in a downpour that she accidentally towel dried her face off.
But, the Dunkirk spirit is alive and well. A team of volunteers organised by Lambeth council hope that when the rain finally eases off, they can use Boris Johnson as a mop.
In other news, small talk between strangers and loose acquaintances has seen a modest surge.
