The Met Office officially cancelled summer 2011 this morning.
Met Office stalwart Rory Pisser said, "Yes, we know that we were extolling a Barbecue Summer only yesterday morning, but a lot can change in 24 hours, and change it has. Our updated forecast is that it's going to piss down until next April."
This comes as no surprise to the weary British Public who are well used to such disappointments.
"Bit of a bugger really," Mike Litt told us, as he left the queue at Queen's Club this morning. "I was waiting for the Murray final, but it looks like it won't be played until at least June 2012."
Rory Pisser advises, "Want some sun? Best go Easyjet."
