I would say the riches people in England do live in the south but the south is far from prosperous as often depicted, some people would have you believe the roads of London are paved in goldLaugh but those that live here would love to get out including the immigrants, Tower Hamlets for exsmple is the poorest borough in the whole country.

Not sure if not knowing whether it snows 10,000 miles away is ignorant  but I like the Aussies anyway, most cheery people I know in London, maybe it's the thought of knowing they can upsticks and move back home anytime they want.

London weather: Commuters face nightmare journey home as 'wrong heat' cancels trains

1 July


Thousands of London commuters faced delays this evening as cancellations and heat restrictions were imposed on rail services.

As temperatures were expected to peak at 31C between 4pm and 6pm, six trains from Paddington to Henley or Bourne End were to terminate early, adding 30 minutes to hundreds of people’s journeys. Many more services could be hit by the heat restrictions, which started at midday, between Paddington and Ladbroke Grove.

MPs immediately demanded to know why the network could not cope with the heat. Labour mayoral hopeful Sadiq Khan said: “Londoners have already suffered too much because of disruption on the train network. Network Rail needs to get a grip right now. It’s simply not good enough to delay trains because of the ‘wrong kind of heat’.”

Fellow Labour mayoral candidate Diane Abbott added: “When it snows, they say they cannot run trains. When there are leaves on the line, they stop the trains. Now it seems the wrong kind of heat means they have to slow people’s journeys down. I would have thought they would have worked out by now that sometimes in London it gets hot.”

Commuters coping with sweltering temperatures on buses and Tube trainstook to social media to complain at the disruption. “Cannot believe hot weather results in trains cancelled or delayed — it’s not the 1st April is it?" tweeted Richard Scott.

Duncan Heaney added: “Apparently really hot weather breaks Thameslink trains as effectively as rain. Stupid sun.”

Kins (@BeckiferAnne) added: “Apparently in England if we have any weather, the trains won’t run.”

It came as health chiefs today issued a heatwave warning with temperatures in London set to hit 33C.

The Met Office declared a “level two heat-health alert” as there was a risk that the conditions would have a significant impact on people’s health.

Public Health England advised people to keep out of the sun between 11am and 3pm and to pay particular attention to how babies and the frail elderly were affected by the heat.

Morning Joel and Henryluca.


Geninue question here, how is Johanna Konta perceived in Australia, is she seen as an Aussie who plays for Britain or a British player? media have all virtually adopted her (mostly out of desperation as our other WTA players are not up to it), crowds too, but on online tennis forums, rather than the casual 2 weeker fans at the matches, are more 50/50 as to whether she is ours or yours. Kind Regards.
Report henryluca July 12, 2017 5:00 AM BST
Birthplace denotes nationality imo. 

However the Australian newspaper has this article

She’s the one that skipped away. The young eight-year-old kid from Collaroy who picked up a racquet in between trips to the beach in an after school clinic. Now 26, the Australian born daughter of two Hungarian immigrants on Sydney’s northern beaches, Johanna Konta, is now firmly British and leading a revival of women's tennis fortunes in the United Kingdom. Overnight she made the Wimbledon quarterfinals, with one of her Australian tennis friends, Dasha Gavrilova cheering her on.

Konta speaks with a British accent and doesn’t pretend to hold any allegiance to her country of birth, except a humorous reference to her three passports — British, Australian and Hungarian — reminding her of the CIA operative Jason Bourne. When she got her British passport back in 2012 she said: ’’You should have seen the moment I got my passport; I literally ran through the office building and stood on the balcony and screamed “I’ve got my passport!” and got a round of applause. It meant 100% that I was eligible to play Fed Cup (for Britain) and then I got nominated, so it’s really been one good thing after another. To now be actually playing for Great Britain is the cherry on top of the cake.’’

Just why Konta felt so strongly about relinquishing her allegiance to Australia is difficult to understand. She claims she is British because her she spent most of her teenage years in the country, having also spent time training in Spain. But it may also have a bit to do with a crucial cut back support by Tennis Australia when she was beginning high school, although she has never publicly spoken about that.

At the time Tennis Australian officials believed Konta didn’t have the requisite tennis skills to make it big time, ranking her below many of her peers — and so her family decided to move to Europe to be closer to the heart of tennis action.
