Further details

This time, Victoria's guests leap to the defence of the weather forecasters, with Janet Street-Porter admitting that one particular BBC weatherman has been sending her temperature soaring. Richard Herring argues that we have come to expect too much of forecasters, pointing out that in medieval times, Michael Fish would have been hailed as a god for his predictive powers.

And on another topic, Mark Steel uncharacteristically speaks out in favour of David Cameron and George Osborne, praising them for their "proper poshness" in the face of the pseudo-poshness of their Labour counterparts.
