    Default Irritating Weather Forecaster BBC1

    Is it just me or does anyone else find themselves shouting "pissaff ye patronizin jessie" when that theatrical condescending wee shirtlifter does the weather?

    Just you, I think.

    I take it you mean the one who was dressed by his mum and says "Sevens for London" and things.

    No, me as well. I know excatly the one you mean. Very well articulated prissy little voice and an attitude that says 'I don't know why I'm wasting my time explaining the weather to you lot, I'm clearly a much superior being'.

    We had a project manager once (for a very short while) almost exactly the same. The contractor said of him "If you could buy him for what he's worth and sell him for what he thinks he's worth, you could retire on the profit". That was just before the site manager tried to deck him, but he moved so the engineer got hit instead. Which was a shame, as the engineer was a nice bloke.

    I find it tiotally distracting and cannot concentrate on what the forecast is actually going to be when that oddball is on waving his hands all over the place and moving round the map with what seems like lightning speed. When he presents the weather it all seems to be lots of theatricals and no content.

    Can't possibly be as bad as the guy who does the weather on Sky News (Francis, maybe?). I'm sure he's on drugs most of the time.

    Francis is a glider pilot and got bollo~ked by the network before he moved to sky.

    His forecasts often contained details that now are sadly missing from the pretty "will it rain" type umbrella symbol nonsense transmitted now...
