the campaign was criticised for being a waste of taxpayers money and misleading, even deluding the public into a false sense of security. As by following those instructions, the public assume they'll be safe. The booklet was never distributed and the series of films were never shown, hence comedians such as Ben Elton ridiculed it in shows like The Young Ones as useless and a waste of money.

It's a case of "Damned if you do, damned if you don't". If their PM gave the worst case scenario (assuming of course there's no deliberately hidden facts) then he would only be accused of fearmongering, I'm sure.
