Kevin O'Sullivan rages over calls for heatwave barbecue ban
The Talk Radio host discussed the heatwave in the UK as temperatures are expected to rise again this week. Mr O’Sullivan told his listeners not to worry about the end of the world and claimed it wasn’t going to happen. He went on to touch on the hosepipe ban and the politicians who are calling for the use of hosepipes to be banned until October.
Mr O’Sullivan said: “Well it’s another lovely day out there, I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but in London, the sun is shining it’s hot.
“It’s what we call a very nice sunny summer day, so enjoy it and don’t worry about the end of the world or anything like that, it’s not going to happen.
“So of course, this means that there are hosepipe bans, politicians calling for everyone to be banned from using hosepipes until October.
“Fire chiefs saying we need to think about banning barbecues and banning chiminea.

Mr O’Sullivan added: “No, no no you don’t, this is a free country if I want to have a barbecue I can.
“By all means give us advice, tell us why we need to be careful and then as a grown adult, I will be sensible and so will everyone else.
“So no bans thank you very much and frankly no hosepipe bans either, just tell us to be sensible.”
