Sky News Weather - blocking off Ireland

Alright usually I'm the calmest person anyone could know, It's very rare that I let something get to me or for that matter go complaining about things


But does anyone get seriously annoyed by Jo Whe*ler on Sky News who always stands right in front of Ireland during the forecast

(She's the middle aged lady with the copperish hair and deep voice)


I need to repair my wiper arm before work tomorrow, but because of her I have no idea if it'll be dry enough to do so


I think there's another english girl who does the same, a blonde lady, don't know her name

If it wasn't for Lisa Burke and the grey haired guy I'd never tune in

I was thinking of contacting sky - see if they'll do anything
(the 3rd one down seems to be the right one)



* still at least its not as bad as the bbc or that dub dope on tv3

Not really....Is she blocking Irelands view? or it possible because she needs to stand there to point out the British weather? since sky is a british channel? who cares?!

Stop moaning and just watch the Irish weather forecast instead of a British one so!

Try watching RTE for Irish weather, usually works a treat.

Why does RTE sometimes do the weather forecast for Spain, South of France, Italy and the snow resorts. Does anybody care whether it's raining in Paris tonight or cloudy in Rome.
