The Truth about Goats
While the British public in their infinite wisdom have selected inspirational weather monikers such as Nigel and Steve, more appropriate storm names are going unrequited. Unimaginative responses to the Met Office appeal have meant that no whirlwinds are named after romance, no blasts are called after the past and not a single ‘bloviating windbags’ is named after Boris Johnson.
It is hoped that naming storms will help raise awareness of how bland the British public are when it comes to meteorological christenings. Up until now only storms and Peers of the Realm are named when it deemed they will cause substantial damage to the UK’s infrastructure and reputation. With many of who still remember the ‘Great Jeffrey Archer’ of 1987.
