No Air Conditioning?

What is it with the rest of the world (outside the US)? I'm sitting in the British Airways First Class lounge in Heathrow Terminal 4 in the afternoon and it's easily more than 90 degrees. I don't think it was even that hot outside. I don't expect it to be air conditioned to a cool 70 degrees like it is in civilized places, but why does the rest of the world think conditions that would normally cause heat stroke are acceptable in a premium lounge? If my company is going to lay out $10K for a ticket, you would think I wouldn't have to sweat through my layover. The conditions are actually much more tolerable out in the terminal.

BA usually does an excellent job all around, but this is the third time this year that I've been in this lounge and it's never even approached comfortable.
Well, my advice is to get into the lounge, drink as much premium booze for free as you can before you start sweating it out, and then go back out in to the terminal and enjoy a Czar Nikolai Filet of Salmon at the Seafood Bar. No use dropping dead of protein deficiency!
