Britain’s summer heatwave shows no signs of abating, and we’re offering odds of just 8/1 that it continues for another month.
Which could spell the end for various canned goods in supermarkets, as Brits hoard products amid the, ahem, apocalyptic conditions.
The favourite for first tinned item that Tesco sell out of is pineapple chunks (5/6), ahead of tuna (2/1) and hot dogs (8/1).
And it’s not just questionable meal choices which are under threat – we make it a 2/1 shot that Theresa May’s reign as Prime Minister will end before the British summer does.
While Michael Fish, renowned for his expertise in extreme weather conditions, is 12/1 to publicly deny that we’re in the midst of a heatwave.
Our spokesman Paddy Power said: “The whole of the UK is going a bit doolally, almost as if the continued sun has gone to their head. And forecasts show little sign of a let-up any time soon.
“Anyway, I can’t talk right now, as I’m filling trollies with as many tins of pineapple chunks and hot dogs as I can find – gotta protect my kids’ balanced diets.”
