    Crazy storm overnight there….the crisp packet which some dirty bastard threw on my garden yesterday has blown about three feet into the rhododendron.
    Thank you BBC

  2. 2

    That’s quite good. after years of trying, Rich seems to have got the idea of this satire business.

    Not only that, I now see the chocolate wrapper hasn’t moved at all.
    Disaster averted.
    I can only praise the BBC for their timely warnings constantly the last 72 hours.

    This is just a media circle jerk that carries pretty esoteric interest yet will be reported on ad bloody nauseam. I’m already bored. Ho hum…

    Loyal Conservative Supporter says:

    Dear Prime Minister. I am really greatful and impressed that you found time to chair the discussion about the impending storm yesterday. It was clearly effective in averting the national disaster forecast by the Met Office and BBC.

    There is no truth whatsoever in the malicious rumour that they grossly over exaggerated, and are typical overpaid useless public sector wastrels.

    Oddly enough that also applies to the current weather hype.

    There was a much cleverer version by Adam in the Sunday Telegraph yesterday.

    And indeed there were less leaves on the lawn that most of last week here on the ‘storm battered’ Devon coast

    “Fewer leaves” you mean…

    who benefits? says:

    Swinging between the great storm in a tea cup of 2013 to outpouring of mass public grief over a drug addled overrated pop star most people have never heard of has been the output of the BBC today. Its everything you want from your BBC, a feast of information only the left want to know about.

    Fact Hunt says:

    How the fuck did we ever win 2 world wars? Bit of aggressive weather, totally overhyped, and the country grinds to a halt. If Alky Ada want an outrage, stick someone undercover in the Met Office.

  16. 16
    who benefits? says:

    A giant tent to cover the UK would mitigate man made global warming which as 99% of climate scientologists know is wholly the cause of the great terror storm of 2013, never again must we be exposed to windy conditions. Oh and a new super super super computer to produce super accurate climate models is desperately needed, five hundred million quid should do it, never again must windy weather be allowed to creep up on us.

    UKIP or bust says:

    I can’t effin belive it, this windy day or storm has a name!

    What’s next:
    The Met Office. “Oh, people out there in climate change land there is a shower predicted for Teusday and were calling it Shirly”?

    How did we win the wars? By waiting for the Americans to bail us out.

    Dave's PR SPAD No 22 says:

    BRITISH MET OFFICE

    Storm will plough through England and Wales and devastate a swathe of the country from the South Coast to the North Midlands

    IRISH MET OFFICE

    Its moved south and will largely miss southern Ireland altogether but will hit localized areas in SW England and along the South Coast

    Guess who was right?

    The problem is that once the news ball was rolling they had to keep the moral panic going becasue:

    1 otherwise they would have had the piss ripped out of them

    2 keeping it going allows them to portray themselves s in control – “our prompt action averted tragedy”

  32. 32
    Fact Hunt says:

    Some Chief twat from the Met Office on Sky News is warning of the storm building strength as it arrives in Demark & Germany, WTF! And now we’ve got Bob Crow in a snazzy cardy spouting his bollocks.

    “Under the cover of ‘independent journalism’, the scammers conned him out of his trove of secret NSA files, hustled him from Hong Kong ahead of legislature-sponsored public hearings on cyber-espionage, and unceremoniously dumped him, minus documents, in a transit lounge at Moscow Airport .

    “This report shows how the American and British spymasters retrieved the top-secret files by luring the fugitive into a well-laid trap, while the mass media went along with the deception to aid the authorities in evading public calls to abolish the global surveillance state…”

    Yes but they were so concentrating on the wind they forgot to mention the rain.

    The highest winds were on a headland at the bottom of the IOW.

    As for the trees down in the street. Look at the pictures of the roots. When a tree falls due to wind in an open wood it rips up the whole root ball.

    These town trees have had their roots compromised by services and more importantly the tarmac/concrete placed over them. A tree needs to breath or the roots rot.

    In the days when the UK had services, all threes in the area were pollarded or similar. The tree still was left with a shape but it was much safer. Now we just let them grow and expect them to survive. Trees fall and branches break off. It happens regularly in all natural woods.

    Our modern planning insists on tree lined developments to replace the green open spaces that have been robbed from our cities and towns. Trees need room, not to be squashed between fences and roads. It is time we actually planned our environment knowing nature, instead of trying to specify nature.

    If I may put a word in Mr Anonymong,

    Either you are new here (though I have noticed your ‘n’ website for at least a year or two, so unlikely) or you cannot have paid sufficient attention to the postings of my very good friend MFHSOCACOS.

    He posts early in the morning and then conscientiously goes out and earns the money to pay taxes to help the dole scroungers in the style to which they have become accustomed. He has a historical interest in his surroundings and visits sites from bygone years in his spare time. The salt of the earth, you could call him.

    Finally, he is one of the most convivial types one may wish to meet. For years now, we have happily planned a whole number of spit-roasts.
