Breaking News 5:34pm UK, Thursday June 11, 2009 The World Health Organisation has declared a swine flu pandemic, raising its alert level to the maximum of six.

So grab your kids and run for the hills!

It is the first global pandemic for 41 years. The virus first emerged in Mexico in April and has now spread to 74 countries with a reported 27,000 cases and 141 deaths.

It will also raise questions about why the step was delayed for weeks as the virus continued to spread.

This is quite interesting news.

141 deaths.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this probably isn't the end of the world, this probably won't be a superplague, and the whole thing will blow over.

Please don't let me interrupt the Fear-fest though.

ATS has been in the grip of the Slippery Slope Logical Fallacy this May. Worth Googling.

141 people died, and its uped to a pandemic? Makes no sense whatsoever....unless this is a scare tactic(fear mongering) used to get the public excited and distracted so the FED can do something devious behind our back, and attempt to boost consumer sales...
