As London temperatures soared to 32 degrees today even Filipino students were complaining about the heat!

Most migrants coming to the UK from tropical countries, like the Philippines and India, expect the weather to be freezing cold all year round, packing their huge suitcases with coats, jumpers and even blankets.

To be fair, for the most part they are right to anticipate chilly winds and rain. Just a few weeks ago in the middle of June students arriving at London’s Majestic College were remarking how cold it felt when natives were sweltering, said Centre Manager Cynthia Barker.

Britain copes well with winter weather, but is not equipped for scorching summers.

Air conditioning is not available in every building and and is still a rarity in most peoples homes. The massive London underground network is almost unbearable on a day like today.

But the bottom line is you cannot survive without central heating for nine months of the year, whereas you can suffer a few weeks of British summer.

My advice to migrant workers or students arriving from anywhere south of Spain is to expect to feel the cold here from September to April. Although hardy Brits will happily wear a tee-shirt in November, you will probably need thermal underwear and a woolly sweater when you are still in the house!
