In a dramatic moved based on both global warming and the Met Office's inability to predict the weather two days hence, Iraq has decided to take over the weather on our behalves.
In a statement from the UK Embassy in Iraq, cultural attaché Gaye Barr said:
"We think it's only natural that Iraq should take over the weather on behalf of the UK. Our weathermen have said often enough that "the morning would be Sunni followed by a Shi'ite afternoon". Seeing as these two cultures meet in Iraq, admittedly sometimes quite violently, we thought it would be a great testament as to how far the country has progressed since Saddam Hussein dictated over it.
"We are sending Sian Lloyd, Rob MacElwee, Bill Giles, John Kettley and other assorted British TV weatherpeople to Iraq for three weeks intensive training. We anticipate that in their absence the weather at home will be posponed or even cancelled."
