A possible reason why Libdems got early awareness of Global Warming? 

Way back in the late 1960's and all through to the mid 1980's when I religiously attended Liberal Party Assemblies we had an instinctive knowledge of what to expect in weather terms. Assembly would start in the tail-end of Summer with sunny days but half way through the weather would break, and autumn rains soaked the late night survivors of Glee Club. We had to pack shoes as well as sandalls.

But recently September seems to be part of summer.

So with glorious sunshine predicted right through to the Leaders Speech this year, LibDems of a certain vitage can feel in their bones (and unsoaked shoes) the reality of Global Warming.

Mind you rougher weather is on its way with the remains of Hurricane Gordon due to hit Britain in time for the traditionally soaking Labour Conference in Blackpool.

Incidentially on Google News this morning, the little thumbnail picture that illustrated the news stories about Hurricane Gordon was ... a picture of one Gordon Brown. Was this a deliberate human inserted michievous comment, or just a glitch in the automated story collation software? If the latter then the soul of the famous computer with a sense of humour in Joseph Heller's 'Catch-22' may still be around in cyberspace. Major Major anyone?
