It’s a shame that we don’t always recognise an omen until after the event. The severe weather we’ve been having in Britain lately has reminded me of the time I survived a crossing of the English Channel in bad weather. About 20 years ago, I was the presenter of the Breakfast Show on 2CR FM, […]


The Met Office outdid themselves this week. They are useless at predicting the weather. That’s a shame because that’s the only thing they have to do. To try and distract us from how bad they are at their only job, a couple of years ago, they announced that they’re going to give names to storms. […]

I’ve had it all wrong about the Met Office. I used to think they were fortune tellers. They make out they can predict the future but they’re rubbish at it. They predicted a hot dry summer for England. What we got was one of the coldest and wettest. Before Christmas, they predicted 38 days of […]


It’s not easy to predict the the future. The Met Office have all kinds of scientific equipment including satellites to help predict the future and they’re rubbish at it. They predicted a hot dry summer for England. We actually got one of the coldest wettest. In the autumn, they predicted 38 days of Arctic winter. […]


On sunny days like today, why do people keep telling me that the weather is “glorious”? I don’t get it, I’d rather stay in. Don’t get me wrong, I like it when it’s warm and bright but I prefer it when it’s warm and bright INSIDE. How come when a room is warm and well lit, […]
