Is it true that all British people always talk about weather?
Yes, we love talking about the weather so much. But there are good reasons. Let me explain why we love talking about the weather. Our weather is quite boring in many ways. It’s not dramatic. I used to live in Hong Kong, and they would have big typhoons coming through. If I think about India, I think about monsoon rains for months on end. In Britain we don’t have very dramatic weather – it’s quite boring. It can be a bit sunny, a bit cloudy, a bit rainy. But the thing is that it’s very variable. It changes all the time. So, in one day you can have all four seasons. You can wake up – and it’s winter. At lunch time it could be summer. Spring and autumn come in between. It’s crazy that way. /3 pages
