    Get far enough north and you get less snow because it is too cold for the air to hold onto the moisture required.

    Of course, at that level of cold the snow never leaves.

    Toronto weather's more variable, due to various lake effects. It doesn't snow in April in New York, AFAIK, whereas it snows regularly here in April.

    Yeah, but that's not Toronto. We are on the right side of the one lake and far enough from the other to avoid too much snowfall. We just laugh at the poor bastards across the way in Buffalo.

    You could try Ireland.
    Similar weather, but will still be in the EU. Our surfers don't really have chiseled abs, as you need a layer or two of insulation if you want to go surfing in the Atlantic.
    Which our nation diet of carbs and carbs in pint form will be happy to help you cultivate.

    But stiff upperlippedness and etiquette aren't really our thing. How do you feel about messin' and actin' the bollox?

    General google results suggest that Toronto is snowier, but not hugely so and especially not hugely so as it relates to what months it snows.

    London on the other hand is much less snowy:

    I usually agree with Jonathan Pie on most things but here is an occasion that I do not.

    Everyone should have understood in a general way how the EU worked before voting to stay or leave. The fact that he mentions that people voted on issues of Sovereignty and post ref the Government said we never lost any of that shows that understanding is key.

    Should we demonize all Leave voters as thick poor racists? Of course not. But let's not pretend. The people who proposed leaving the EU and the people who voted for it didn't have an idea of how to actually implement it in a way that reflected the tone of the Leave campaign.

    YOU'RE ALL BABIES.

    No, look, this Jonathan Pie shit is getting to me. Jonathan Pie is written by Spiked contributors. Spiked was formed from the staff of Living Marxism when Living Marxism declared bankruptcy to avoid paying out of a libel suit.

    The libel suit was brought by ITN when Living Marxism accused them of fabricating footage of a Serbian run concentration camp during the Bosnian Civil War. These fuckers are unrepentant apologists for ethnic cleansing.

    Fuck them. Fuck them. Fuck Jonathan Pie.

    To be honest the history of Living Marxism & Spiked (and the Revolutionary Communist Party which these publications are born from) and their coterie of supporters in the mainstream media is a fascinating reading project.

    Ah, dammit.

    I really enjoyed Jonathon Pie and his rants about Trump. Was the kind of cathartic screaming I needed.

    Right, cross that guy off the list.

    That they used to be Living Marxism is sort of weird to me, whenever I've come across Spiked (and its editor, Brendan O'Neil) they've seemed rather right-wing to me.

    Good news guys! The Queen standing about in the baking heat for 15 minutes with cameras recording her live, waiting for Trump to show up for tea? It turns out that never happened! It was all just a lie to make Trump look bad! Trump said so!


    BBC News didn’t even bother correcting this one - probably because this went to the UK news feed and everybody in the UK knows he was late - so you can skip the video, which is just footage of Trump lying at his rally.

    Now comes the fun of waiting to see if there’ll be an official UK government response, or if everybody will hide and pretend not to have heard about this.

    Carney: No-deal Brexit risk 'uncomfortably high'
    The possibility of a no-deal Brexit is "uncomfortably high" and "highly undesirable", Bank of England governor Mark Carney has told the BBC.

    Mr Carney said the prospect of the UK leaving the EU without a deal was "a relatively unlikely possibility, but it is a possibility".

    He said it was "absolutely in the interest" of the EU and UK to have a transition period.

    Critics poured scorn on the comments, calling them part of "Project Fear".

    Former work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith, who backs Brexit, said: "There is no such thing as a no-deal, as the [World Trade Organization] is where the EU and the UK are already and as a rule-based organisation, both sides would have to abide by those rules.

    He said the Treasury and the Bank of England had "struggled to understand how this would work," adding: "No deal is the language of Project Fear."

    Yes Iain, the WTO rules is what everyone's talking about when they talk about a no-deal, you f[the rest of this sentence has been blocked to avoid getting banned for excessive profanity].

    I'm pretty sure the "transition period" was meant be two years between activating article 50, and actually getting kicked out.
