The Met Office’s seasonal forecasts are worthless and failed to help Britain prepare for the coldest start to winter in 100 years, MPs said yesterday.Can’t see anyone arguing against that!
But despite giving a damning verdict on its forecasting, the Commons transport committee urged the Government to give the Met Office an extra £10million in funding.Wha…?
Of course, it’s so they can be better prepared and get it right next time!
The report called it ‘a small price to pay... given the cost to the UK economy of transport disruptions due to severe winter weather’.Fine. OK. ‘Spend to save’, and all that…
As long as, if they screw it up again, we disband the lot of ‘em, as not fit for purpose.
Last chances. I’m in favour of them!
