Bill Giles has most recently been quoted in an article called Bill Giles: why do weather presenters think we have no common sense?. Bill Giles said, “When I began my career on screen it was forbidden to mention flooding. The Met Office view at that time was, We forecast the rain coming out of the clouds but when it hits the ground, it's a local authority problem, not ours. We got around it by talking about 'excess surface water' on roads and pavements, but that was a coded warning. On frosty and snowy nights, does the forecaster really need to tell people to watch out on untreated roads and pavements? I think they could safely just mention the ice and expect viewers to use their common sense.”. Bill Giles has been quoted a grand total of 3 times in 1 article.
