As Benjamin Franklin famously wrote: "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes and the Daily Express predicting the coldest winter for 100 years."
Or words to that effect.
Daily Express, 2 December 2010: "The big freeze tightened its icy grip on the nation yesterday as weathermen warned it could be the coldest winter for 100 years."
Daily Express, 27 November 2011: "Britain will grind to a halt within weeks as the most savage freeze for a century begins."
Daily Express, 12 December 2012: Forecasters have warned Britain faces possibly the coldest and snowiest winter for 100 years.
Daily Express, 12 October 2013: "James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, said it was likely to be the worst winter for more than 100 years."
All of those predictions were wide of the mark and the Express's poor track record with weather stories is well known. But it hasn't put the paper off coming back for more and making the same prediction a couple of times already this month.
Daily Express, 10 October 2014: "Winter 2014 is on track to be the coldest for more than a century."
Daily Express, 28 October 2014: "Scientists have re-issued stark warnings ahead of what some have claimed is set to be the coldest winter for a century."
After years of making this same prediction to no avail, The Express may now just be resigned to hoping probability will eventually step in and spare their blushes if they keep it up for long enough.
