BRITONS would prefer it if television weather presenters gave them false hope.
Mother-of-two Emma Bradford said: “I just want to see bright yellow suns all over a map of the British Isles, while a man in a suit tells me things will be alright.
“I don’t care if he’s lying, I just need something I can cling to for 24 hours.”
Plumber Roy Hobbs said: “Frankly I don’t give a toss if these people have spent ten years at weather school.
“I don’t want them giving me the depressing truth. Frankly to do so is just self-indulgent.
“Just be my friend, that’s what telly’s for.”
