The Met Office has firmly pinned the blame for the foul stench hanging over the south of England - dubbed "Euro-whiff" - on our continental cousins, the BBC reports.

Now i live inland; a long way inland

As opposed to the blubbing sailors who keeled over when the nasty Iranians hijacked them.
Oh, those would be the Rosbif surrender monkeys, wouldn't they?
