Recent days of unseasonable warmth were swept away by a cold front crossing the United Kingdom and western Europe. Not only is cooler air rushing across the region, but periods of rain as well. Thursday was the hottest day of the week in London and the rest of southern England. In fact, it was the warmest September day in London since 2006 as the high reached 29.5 degrees C (85.1 degrees F). After four straight days of high temperatures reaching 26 degrees C (78 degrees F) or greater in London, temperatures are expected to reach only 18 degrees C (65 degrees F) on Friday. The cooldown will also reach France on Friday following several days of temperatures over 31 degrees C (88 degrees F). In fact, some parts of France experienced their warmest September temperatures in almost a decade. The high on Thursday reached a sizzling 33 degrees C (91 degrees F) in Paris, one of the hottest September days in recent years. A cold front brought showers and thunderstorms across France and northern Spain Thursday night into Friday. Some of the thunderstorms contained strong winds and hail near Paris. Behind this frontal boundary cooler air will arrive on Friday leading to highs only near 24 degrees C (75 degrees F).

Fijis new Constitution was signed into law by President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau Friday, which now hastens the process towards national elections in September 2014, as promised by Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama. On its role in the Pacific region, Minister Swire acknowledged the need for the United Kingdom to continue its presence. My visit here comes after a successful trip to Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea in April. This visit came after the extraordinarily successful visit to Tuvalu and Solomon Islands of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cambridge. The links between ourselves and this part of the world are historic, strong and enduring. We like to think that providing finance to climate change, and what is now known as the greatest challenge to this part of the world, shows our continuing commitment. I think its important that the UK is here to stay. What is sometimes forgotten is that we are the third largest donor in the Pacific in terms of the European Development fund which provides huge amount of money in the region, said Minister Swire. Minister Swire was in Majuro to head the UK delegation at the Post-Forum dialogue meeting with Pacific Leaders. The United Kingdom was one of the first countries that expressed its support for the Majuro Declaration on Climate Change Leadership. When people talk rather academically about the principles of climate change, they should come here to see the realities on the ground. Having travelled to four Pacific Island Countries in recent months, Minister Swire said seeing the situation on ground brings the point close to home, especially when the highest point in Majuro was a bridge, three metres above sea-level. The UK and the European Union although we are far away, we stand shoulder to shoulder with the islands in terms of financial support and providing technical know-how.

0 kevinhoque , September 12, 2013 12:04 PM *Sigh* The UK price includes VAT @ 20%. The US price is the price before tax. This is the case with all price comparisons between the UK and the US. So the UK price before VAT is added is around 457, which at 1.5 dollars to the pound is around $685. This is about 6% more than our US cousins. Hardly a massive difference. 0 bustapr , September 12, 2013 5:37 PM also should note that most international businesses dont sell their stuff at equal price across countries. its more like a percentage of the median salary. what people from each country seem to be able and willing to pay for the product. the reason in USA its cheaper in UK conversion terms is mostly because the people in USA generally make less money. 0 drapacioli , September 12, 2013 7:02 PM Isn’t a 549 GBP like $850? Why is it so much more expensive in the UK than the US? The US non-contract version is $649, that’s a difference of $200 or the price of most new subsidized phones! 0 Dude604 , September 12, 2013 9:48 PM They sure do look slick.
