The weather – like our politics – has gone mad

Technically, today is the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere as explained in this short note. But it seems that nobody told the weather. Here in London, we have grey skies and heavy rain and a temperature of 15C.

On Thursday, the UK holds a referendum to decide whether the country will remain a member of the European Union or leave. Although the overwhelming majority of senior politicians, business leaders, trade union leaders, and economists favour membership – as I do – the result currently looks too close to call.

It’s my birthday two days after the referendum. Boy, it’s going to be quite a week.
