The Deluge Subsides?

"And it's just another bloody rainy day..."
The Pogues, White City

Those of you old enough to remember the long wet summer of 1985 will be experiencing a sense of deja-vu at the moment. After a washed out June with all the floods this year, the first few days of July haven't been much better. I was even caught in a heavy shower of hail yesterday while driving home. Not very summery weather.
1984, the year before that wet summer of '85 was notably Orwell's year of "big brother". Deja-fucking-vu indeed.
