Europe 'stealing' our rain, says Iran President - and then it, er, rains
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claims that Western countries are causing drought in Iran by using hi-tech equipment to drain the clouds of raindrops.
And just after making his extraordinary comments at the inauguration of a dam in a central province, it started to rain.
First we have the predicted end of Rome by a massive earthquake, and Romans are stirred but not shaken; then it's supposed to be the end of the world today, and we're still here; then there's "proof" that we're stealing rain, and there will probably be a hosepipe ban because of drought in the UK.
All these soothsayers, prophets of doom and supreme leaders with inside information are obviously not what they used to be - bring back Nostradamus.
I'm going to predict that it will be a long, hot summer in Europe - break out the umbrellas.
