Our meterlogical corresspondent has let us all down this Christmas. The weather is getting better and the rivers are going down.
We are having to rely on yesterday's pictures of floods and impassable roads.
However you can turn to people being blown to pieces in Syria and we have detailed accounts of all the children shot dead in The Return of the Great American School Massacre.
You can be assured that Spoof will be the first to describe all the pain and suffering of the world next year and we will give special attention to the forthcoming wayward and wanton weather in the British Isles.
SO CHEER UP!!!
