I think it turned out Fishy wasn't to blame for the misreporting and he was in fact going on about something else in that clip....

Here is once source on the subject, quite a few more on the tinterwebs.

The wrong man

Sorry bout that mates. When we get hungry we can't help ourselves from passing a feast prepared for us on such a nice lawn.

Jubilee and Grip were released into the grounds of the 1,000 year-old Royal Palace last year as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. It emerged yesterday they were killed by the fox in May and have now been replaced with ravens with the same names.

Seems a little late eyy?

Hopefully the storm will hit about 10pm tom night whilst Im on my 8th pint of Thatchers! Great pub weather

I concur - I sincerely hope I'm blown / rained in and have no option but to continue drinking whatever tipple takes my fancy tomorrow - not that my favourite landlords need much of an excuse for a lock-in.

As for the ravens - I'm certain they aren't the first to have met such an end, in fact there's this from the wiki;

Since 1987, the Tower ravens have been the subject of a successful captive breeding programme. For example, over time, 17 chicks were successfully hatched and raised by a pair of ravens known as "Charlie" and "Rhys".[1] Charlie came to an unhappy end: he bit a bomb-sniffing dog (who was also named Charlie), and the dog grabbed the raven with his teeth. This dog bite killed the bird

And I'm not exactly sure what the phrase 'Britian will fall' actually means - but I can't imagine it means being battered by inclement weather - could be wrong though.

Are we sure the fox hunting crowd aren't behind this? Remember how we had the story of children being attacked while they slept in their beds when the new laws were being introduced?

Our stormy visitor has been named St. Jude, after the patron saint of lost causes and desperation. I'm looking forward to it myself, just wish it could be much more apocalyptic and utterly nationwide.

I doubt it - the Fox Hunting ban came in during 2004, yet the children being attacked by foxes in their houses were over the last couple of years.

As for the OP, it'll take a hell of a lot more than a few gust of wind to make the UK "fall".

As for battered all the time; in my 25 years I don't think I've ever seen a particularly bad storm. At least not one I remember. I would say our climate is one of the most stable.

That made me chuckle no end. We had storms of equal strength to the one coming in March 2008, January 2007 and October 2000.

Stable? Where do you live, because if you do get stable weather, I think you're about to inundated with the rest of the UK population as it is never stable where I live!

Maybe drifying off topic a bit but do animals give us any signs that a big storm is heading are way? Never really heard of anything, apart from cows lying down when rain is expected to protect a dry patch of grass!!

It's a bit like when your kid's goldfish is found floating in it's just go to the pet shop and buy another 'splish' before you kid gets home from school.

It doesn't matter if all of the ravens were fox dinner...they'd just go and get six more before the queen drops her crown.

Aussies have just suffered a massive forest fire, India from a massive typhoon. I don't recall loads of threads about the subject. We have some strong wind and there are about 10 threads on the subject. I know we are obsessed by the weather in this country, but let's try and put it in perspective. compared with other nations bad weather, ours is extremely benign.

What happened to the stiff upper lip.

What happened to the stiff upper lip.

I think most in this thread and the others agree that it is a bit of a non-event - but as this is ATS, there are some who love a bit of doom porn!

According to the article linked in the original post (which no one appears to have read) they have more than 6 ravens just to be on the safe side.

I think you'll find that most people appear to have read the article as it's been mentioned a couple of times in earlier posts about having the "spare" raven.......did you read all the thread?

Yes, I did read all the thread which is why I came to that conclusion - the article states that they have 8 ravens whilst the previous posters were claiming there were 7, which lead to my comment that people didn't read the article.

I assume you noticed this when you read both the thread and the article

Well I must have been asleep during all these storms.

When I say stable I mean we don't have extremes. No hurricanes or tornados (at least not ones that do major damage) etc...etc
