Philip Eden On The St Jude’s Day Storm

November 11, 2013

By Paul Homewood


The St Jude’s Day storm that hit southern England last month was described in the media as “The Storm of the Century”, “Superstorm” and “A repeat of 1987”.

As I pointed out at the time, it was none of these things, but merely the type of storm that comes along every few years.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph last week, Philip Eden, past vice-president of the Royal Meteorological Society, made the same point. Note the barbed comment about the BBC!
