...in other news

What, on God's green Earth, has got into the British press?

Essentially the news is that Winter is cold and that... oh dear people will have to change their travel plans. Admittedly that is mostly to do with the inadequate preparation by BAA and some slightly questionable decisions by BA.

Does it really deserve this Olympic level whinge?

Britain is becoming a spectacularly miserable place. The whinge factor in the press is about the same as your typical 6 year old- and it adds nothing and achieves nothing. The same nonsense as the Daily Mail's "No to Berlin Time", or "save the Queen's Head on Stamps".

It is not that big a deal. It really isn't.

And snow, even the metres of the stuff here in Tallinn, is actually... quite beautiful.

It is stupid when the system can not cope with winter, which despite the RECORD LOW temperatures, does actually come every year. However the melodrama in the media is frankly rather pathetic.

Grow up, you silly sods, and get a life: go sledging or drink mulled wine or, just accept that these things happen and never mind. Don't turn winter into yet another excuse for yet another miserable witch hunt.

It is not the winter that is horrible, it is the relentlessly negative and nasty, ignorant, arrogant, no nothings who absurdly call themselves reporters these days that are pointless, negative and faintly ludicrous. Since most of you got your jobs through family pulling of strings after you left your fee paying schools, then the least you can do is smile about it .. at least once in while.
