The Met Office: A Bunch Of Fuck-Ups

From the Mail Online

"The Met Office warned ministers to expect an ‘exceptionally cold winter’ but then kept the prediction secret from the public. The forecaster decided not to reveal the information because it was embarrassed after wrongly predicting a ‘barbecue summer’ in 2009...Instead of a seasonal forecast, it offered only monthly snapshots."

What kind of Meteorological Office is that?

'Yeah we're pretty sure it's going to be one of the coldest winters on record so we'll inform the elite of this fact, but not the man on the street 'cause he might call us useless cunts if we're wrong like we were last year. Of course this won't allow any plans to be but in place to avoid the country coming to a standstill but we still get paid so who give a flying fuck, right?'

Incompetence beyond belief ! Especially when they claim to provide "world leading weather services for the public, business and government." Yes, that would be the exact same public and businesses they failed to inform of the impending freeze.

It was probably also a question of putting out two different forcasts so that whatever happened they could say "told you so" because they take us for complete cunts.
