UK Met Office Confirms We Get The Weather Wrong Every Time

With their nice shiny new plush offices in the scenic area of Exeter you would be forgiven in believing that the Met Office is dedicated and consistent in their roles as weather guardians. But you would be wrong, they get it wrong nearly every time and they keep getting away with it!

£97m of tax payers money for a supercomputer that is as inaccurate as floating a stick down a stream with Winnie the Pooh. Where the stick goes nobody knows. And the same is for the Met Office weather prediction service, where it goes nobody knows except it will be wrong.

Military grade satellites and drones can pinpoint people from high in the sky with accuracy that is simply astounding, yet the Met Office cannot predict weather patterns. They get it wrong nearly every time and expect us to simply role over and accept their incompetence.

If you had the same failings as the Met Office in your workplace, you would have been sacked a long time ago or at least transferred to role with damage limitation. Yet the Met Office still continues to operate under an umbrella of guesswork, inaccuracy and rank stupidity believing that we are happy with their service.

Therefore in order to avoid any further confusion regarding the weather, we suggest that you no longer look at the weather forecast and instead stick your head out the window. Or better still speak to the local witch, scam artist or fortune teller in your local area, as you will have more chance of weather accuracy and a nice fable to brighten up your day.

We recommend if cloudy take a jacket, if sunny wear some sunglasses. See that wasn’t hard was it? And all it cost you was one minute of your time and not £97m of tax payers money for a Met Office supercomputer.
