« Heat wave | Main | What is done and not done »


There was a fairly respectably sized spider in our flat the other day, and after unsettling some weird-assed thing with wings from next to the computer a few minutes ago, it occured to me that there is another reason why these hot UK summers (and climate change, in general) are not a good thing.

Not only is this extreme heat detrimental to my enjoyment of the summer months, but it also makes the UK a far more appealing place to the kinds of critters that I was quite happy to leave behind in Africa. All it would take is for one egg-heavy parktown prawn to get adventurous and hop into a container in Rosebank, and then scuttle out into a back garden in Putney a few months later. That's all it would take, and London would be doomed.
