It's Pissing Down Again In Manchester - For A Change

A spokesman for Manchester City Council today announced that the northern British metropolis, home of the world famous football team, Manchester City, was effectively immune to the effects of global warming.

Council Person Frank Backbottom told thespoof.com in an unrivalled exclusive:

"It makes no difference to us here. Global warming is not an issue in Manchester. It makes no difference how large or small our collective carbon footprint is. It pisses down here every day. Rain. You can't get away from it."

"That's spot on that is," said binman Derek Clark, of Stretford. "The only difference is that the rain's getting a bit warmer of late. Sometimes..."

"Yeah, but sometimes it gets colder, especially in winter," a passer by told our team.

Cristiano Ronaldo told us he didn't give a flying fuck at a spinning doughnut either way because he was moving to the Iberian Peninsular soon.

"We'll keep the rain," a Mancunian traffic warden told us. "We know where we stand with the rain. Never be without a brolly, that's my advice."

More as we get it
