The one thing that has just occurred to me while reading this was the UK is just (has just) finished its combat role in Iraq.
Now I know that the troops are earmarked to go into Athganastan (sorry spelling), in a few weeks.
But it seems strange and somewhat convenient that during this outbreak that they are coming home.
I remember watching the ‘Threads’ docu-drama years ago (ago that’s a lie I watch it every couple of months :p) and I can’t help but wonder if there is some sort of preparedness exercise going on at the moment, are the local councils in the UK starting to man emergency bunkers? Are hospitals starting to cancel non-emergency surgeries? Will supermarkets be getting slightly smaller deliveries as the government starts to horde food?
Now it could just be nothing and my over active imagination going into overdrive but are hidden wheels starting to turn ?
