Does this sound like a straightforward no nonsense neutral weather forecast from a state funded meteorological organisation? It looks and sounds to me like the formerly highly regarded Meteorological Office of Great Britain is suffering from the same entrenched political/ideological bias as our state funded BBC.
Update 25th July 19 03.
The record set in 2003 still stands. Nowhere in the country got anywhere near 39C. 38.1C in Cambridge was the max. The Met Office now look very silly indeed and lamely try to excuse their failure by blaming a ‘little bit of cloud’ – i.e. the weather. Plonkers.
