It smelled great when I was there

A friend emailed this one, about which she's as baffled as I:
Foul Smell Encircles London

Of course you know who the Brits will blame:
U.K. Media Blames France, but Meterologists Say French Not Responsible
It was so bad, (How bad was it?)

Even the Queen was bothered:
Not even the queen was spared, as newspapers reported that Windsor Castle also suffered from the effects of the putrid smell.
Sheesh! At least the national pride remain intact:
The foul smell was not English, Sarah Holland, a forecaster for the Met Office told the BBC. "The origins of the smell come from Europe," she said.
Here it goes:
British tabloid, The Daily Mail was quick to attack the French for "le stink," reporting that "freak weather" had caused the "French stench" to come to England.
Pepe le Pew?

Alors, non!
according to Helen Chivers, a forecaster at the Met Office, the smell actually came across "from Northern Europe."
Is something rotten in the state of Denmark?

French government wants them out, firms and unions do not
And the Chinese are po'd at France's suppoort of Tibetan independence.

Come on, don't worry about who will be blamed.BBC will get it's creative reporters cracking to come up with something to blame the Chinese,and if short of ideas,they can always turn to their comrade in combat : CNN, or the germany TV station (sorry, just can't remember the name..)..they are the experts, so leave it to the experts,lay back and enjoy their sensational news later....Cheers !

Didn't anyone notice that last summer the Swedes reversed the direction of the blades on all of their wind turbines and are now blowing all the odor towards perfidious Albion? It makes sense as the Swedes and the British are the only ones that MIGHT make their Kyoto Protocol goals. Sweden simply is making sure its number one, or rather number 15!
