Preparedness in the media


Recommended Posts

Bizarrely there's been quite a lot of coverage today in the media on "preppers".


Vanessa Feltz on Radio 2 (37 mins in) - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06jt9r1


and on the BBC Website - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-34637377


Sadly the usual crowd of lunatics were interviewed and the tone of the interviewers make it clear that they are gently mocking. Those of us not preparing for Zombie Armageddon keep sensibly quiet.

National Grid asks for more power generation for this evening: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-34723259


The built in redundancy of the National Grid (i.e. how much more electricity over demand it can produce) has been closing for years and is now at its lowest level for 7 years. With an aging Power Statio Network, many are talking about more frequent blackouts to come. Hence the Chancellor's overtures to the Chinese earlier this month.
