I noticed a couple of Facebook friends post a link to a Daily Mail article scaremongering about Summer hay fever. I’ve seen examples of how the Mail has done this in the past, terrifying old people with reports of the worst Winter since time began, so I decided to do a quick search of hay fever stories over the last few years.
2013: Hayfever sufferes will have it worse then ever this spring
2012: Hayfever victims face an extra month of poain[sic]
2011: Summer hell for hay fever victims
2010: Hay fever hell is on its way
2009: Summer of misery for UK’s hay fever victims
2008: Hay fever alert as pollen count starts to soar
British journalism at its best.
