From Mr John McInally.
Sir, John Kay, like so many others, continues to bring the unfortunate Michael Fish back into the limelight (“Big data lets us see a little further into the unknown”, February 12). Buried in the middle of his column is the note that “the forecasters simply made a mistake in analysing the available data”. In other words Mr Fish was only the mouthpiece for a system that failed to deliver, and this can hardly be described as his fault. Leave the man in peace.
