    I think Iiyama are to the fore with those type of monitors, though for some reason they nearly always incorporate useless tiny speakers in the bezel.
  2. Agree with this, combined with their warmist agenda they are too prejuduced to forecast objectively.
  3. "He said £20.7million was invested in the project last year alone, taxpayers’ money “which will enable the Met Office to deliver more accurate forecasts, from hours to a century aheadâ€. Mr Hirst said this referred to climate change predictions." Climate change predictions! We taxpayers have to pinch ourselves every now and then to remind us how lucky we are in being allowed to feed their obsession.

  5. Sun/summer worshippers are like party bores: absolutely convinced that just because they want to party every weekend therefore everybody else must want to, too. Then they go on to tell you what you need, want etc. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/may/24/why-i-hate-summer

  7. LOL Exactly what I was thinking, especially as Gavin was its loudest cheerleader!
  8. Thank goodness for all that high pressure you're so fond of. Maybe you'll spot the connection?
  9. Another spin-off from the high-pressure that some posters are so fond of: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2120988/Scorched-earth-smoke-surrounds-Welsh-town-arsonists-sparks-hill-fire.html They must be well pleased.
  10. Apparently this constant high pressure and clear blue skies are wonderful: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-17476597 I'll have to keep reminding myself.
  11. I remember how arrid and parched everywhere was looking by the end of July and everything was covered in dust. Thank goodness August rescued the situation just in time. We seem to be on a roll of cooler, cloudier summers, I hope it continues.
  12. Lets hope we don't have a "beer-garden" summer, or this will become very serious.
  13. Like the way he differentiates between climate scientists and proper ones: http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/jamesdelingpole/100133247/children-just-arent-going-to-know-what-sun-is/
  14. "Not sitting out in a beer garden doesn't make a blind bit of difference to low river levels." If you're not sitting in it due to prolonged rainfall it does.
  15. Pertinent reporting here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hereford-worcester-15951722 I wonder if those hoping for the "Shades of 76 Summer" were happy that a vital element of our ecology was destroyed so long as they could enjoy their time in the beer garden? Selfishness to the nth degree.
