Nice blog post by Paul Homewood, deosntrating that global warming saves lives in the UK (and no doubt other northern countries)

I wonder where Roger Harrabin is today!

I was waiting for the stats to be published by the ONS, but in the meantime the BBC beat me to it!

The lowest ever number of winter deaths was recorded last year, official figures for England and Wales show.

An estimated 18,200 excess winter deaths occurred in 2013-14, the lowest number since records began in 1950-51.

Last winter was notably warmer than in previous years and had a relatively mild flu season which contributed to the lower number of deaths.

The Office for National Statistics data compares deaths in winter months with averages in other seasons.

It showed 11.6% more people died last winter and elderly people were disproportionately affected.

Of the 18,200 excess deaths, 14,000 were in the over-75s.

Temperatures were 2C above average for December and January last year.

The ONS report said: “The peak in…

    This is not good. The Libtard progressives and their friends at the UKMO will be very annoyed. They need at least 30.000 of us old’uns to die each winter to meet their goals.

    The figures are probably even deceptively high. The elderly don’t necessarily die immediately of a condition triggered by the cold. They can often survive a slip or stroke or illness for months after the original event but the resulting loss of health and mobility sees them off later in the year. Even something as minor as the norovirus can make the elderly scared to eat because they fear an upset stomach. Indeed in an old gut, an accute event can trigger a chronic one. Infrequent eating can take months to kill a person but the initial cause is ultimately responsible.
