  1. Forecasters have been told to put a positive spin on the weather

    It is goodbye to those miserable showers and isolated storms. Prolonged sunshine is expected under new “positive” forecast guidelines issued by the Meteorological Office.

    Britain may have a tendency for damp and drizzle, but there is no need for our television forecasters to rub it in. They have been told to look on the bright side and accentuate the positive in an edict from the national weather centre.

    There is no need to dwell on a “small chance of showers” when “mainly dry” tells a better story.

    Outlook is suddenly brighter

    Read the article - what does this have to do with New Labour? I'm sure there are plenty of reasons not to vote Labour so why bother making up new ones....
