Yesterday on Twitter, Liam Dutton, the "weather presenter" (oh, England) from Channel 4 News "took the piss" out of another weather presenter, Nathan Rao from the Daily Express, for what he considered subpar weather reporting.
This isn't a new feud, by the way—they've been at it for years, with Dutton on the offensive. It began in 2012, with Dutton joking about the Express' propensity for putting overwrought snow predictions in huge headlines on their front page. First in May 2012:
And then in July 2013:
And joking about the Express' weather reporting in general in November 2013.
Other people wanted in on it, of course.
Rao suggested a truce, but Dutton was having none of it.
And got right back to trolling the Rao and the Express on the regular.
Rao occasionally fought back.
But to no avail.
Dutton called Rao's reports "garbage."
The ribbing continued in 2015.
And that brings us up to date.
Dutton's still waiting for that reply.
The world of British weather is a fascinating place.
