The BBC news, covering storm Dennis, talked about "freak weather".
It's not "freak" weather at all. I reckon it's the new "normal" weather, and that in a few years time "freak weather" will mean a gentle winter.
In general, news people (not just BBC) are trained in the arts as opposed to the sciences. They have no interest in or knowledge of science subjects and therefore because of their lack of understanding, the easiest way to report changing weather systems is by using the word 'freak'.

Posted by MattHardyA Boris promise is just a lie that hasn't happened yet. Whatever Sue Grey says, no way is Boris going to admit he lied and resign.

Posted by webspider555I’m beginning to wonder whether our government is just incompetent or are all these things happening just to get us in a rage arguing amongst ourselves.
Good, grumpy point.
