There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

We had 25C yesterday and today looks like being pretty warm again. It seems no time since it was -21.4C and I was thinking the heating was struggling a bit.

You seem sceptical about the merits of very cold temperatures, peneasy. However I love living somewhere where the seasons are just that (even if all in one day :D ) and I rejoice in the winter freeze as it kills the bugs and gives me an excuse to loll about by the stove with a blanket and good book...

We had 25 today, too darned hot to do much...

It's Fair been a scorching month on Scottish island
A SCOTTISH island has enjoyed a sunnier May than anywhere else in the UK.
The aptly named Fair Isle, between Orkney and Shetland, has had 279 hours of sunshine - more than anywhere else in Britain.
It's been the same here :smile:

Mere latitude will give you more hours of sunlight at this time of year. It's not any sort of achievement.
Sunshine is a bit better, I admit, but no big thing.

I don't have a thermometer, but it's bloody hot!!

I gave you the wrong idea Fia! I like both the warmth and the cold and it is important to my spirit (damn who says Humanists don't have a spiritual dimension) to live both experiences each year all along my life. I walked in the park at -18degC when I lived in Brussels and I enjoy my winter holidays at Sanbernardino on the Swiss Alps; I have experienced what is like at 42degC. (brrrr) in Sicily when I was a boy ....you feel the heat in your head while you swim and I slept on a blanket on the marble floor by the night. At 65 I can affirm however,that I am definitely more comfortable with northerly women (character, mood, trust and -why not- features).
