City slogans and climate change
In recent months, the tedium of the Gibbet Hill traffic queues reduces one to reading the banners fluttering from lamp-posts proclaiming that "Coventry is the hottest place to be this year". This year Leamington was quite hot enough, thank you very much; the nights were oppressively sticky and restless in our sultry top-floor bedrooms.
"Summer of Cov" states another suggestive slogan. Does anyone really call it Cuventry any more? Coventry may be trying harder, but Glasgow was miles better.
