Did anyone else hear that BBC news soundbite from a representative of the emergency services reviewing the effects of the sub-tropical storms that hit parts of the UK this week? Amongst other things, he described them as “very, very frightening”.

If so, did you manage to resist singing, “Thunderbolt and lightning / Galileo! / Galileo!”?

(And why don’t we make Bohemian Rhapsody the British national anthem? After all, everyone knows the words, it was made famous by Queen, and composers don’t come much more diverse than a gay Parsi Indian Zoroastrian born in a British colony in Zanzibar.)
