    Government says paint houses all white to beat heatwave

    As we face a heatwave that could damage the health of thousands, it's good to know the Government has a crisis plan in place.

    This is just hilarious! (the response from The Mirror, not the article)

    What do you expect any political body to do in light of imminent adverse weather? At least they're offering practical advice - no doubt the tabloid-reading sheep of this nation will need something to keep themselves cool after they've ran out of Fosters and Stella to drown themselves in.

    Personally they shouldn't bother - if people are too stupid to realise that going to tanning salons for concentrated levels of UV radiation isn't harmful, they deserve to fry.

    damned if they do, damned if they don't.

    White surfaces reflect heat - black surfaces absorb it.

    This is fairly common knowledge BTW.

    oh never knew that thanks, now i know why they all have white houses in spain..

    I do like the way that this country handles weather. Every year it's the same. E

    On the off chance that the powers that be are reading, guys, it's not a heatwave - it's called "summertime", we get it every year, it's fine. Don't panic. Don't worry. The gods aren't angry with us. No need to sacrifice a virgin lamb, no need to paint our houses white. Just leave a window open and put some lemonade in the fridge, it'll be alright.

    Wait for the MP's to cotton on to this one, full coat of white paint to both houses...
