Ah the news is out now is it?

Basically MeteoGroup have not got their arse in gear. Bitten off more than they
can chew if you ask me. Well they will soon learn what a difficult customer the
BBC can be. The MetO will be charging the BBC a premium rate no doubt to rescue
them, ROFL.

If you let grapes ripen, they would be much less sour.

Fair enough - and better than having a silent gap instead of a forecast.

As long as we have model output, radar, satellite imagery & real weather reports etc. online, I'm happy to give the often inacurate & contradictory forecasts a miss.

Asha,

I thought the same regarding sour grapes.

Bitter and twisted.

Perhaps a bit harsh.
And maybe wide of the mark.

At least the Beeb did not ask Piers to tender.

Doesn't our very own Stephen Davenport work for MeteoGroup, perhaps he can
