Have your say

So, this is it then. Ta-da! It’s summer and time for holidays.

Have you peeled off all the layers to give your fleshy bits their annual outing yet?

Come on, it’s August. You’re meant to be in shorts and bikinis by now.

Oh yeah, I forgot. This year’s been a bit of a washout.

I know, it’s rubbish isn’t it? But it’s probably what counts as one of those blessings in disguise.

Just stop to think about it. Have you seen any men with hairy beer bellies and shoulders the shade of a lobster on a street or seafront near you recently?

I’m afraid that men in this country don’t do summer all that well.

Just one of the reasons why we should be pleased the heatwave’s not arrived.
