Britain’s gloomiest man has described 2010 as his ‘annus horribilis’, although confidently predicts 2011 will probably be worse.
‘2010 has been a terrible year,’ said Roger Mason, 41, from Wolverhampton, who described his investiture as Britain’s Gloomiest Man as ‘bloody typical’.
‘The weather’s been crap, I’ve had a cold the whole year and Man Utd have lost all their home games.
‘The only thing keeping me going is the sure-fire knowledge that next year will be even worse. Assuming of course we haven’t all been wiped out by terrorist attacks, swine flu or a Conservative government.’
