bill-swift - December 28, 2012
OK, so I was wrong about the world ending last Friday. That's on me...and the Mayans. Still, that doesn't mean that we aren't looking down the barrel of a whole buttload of Armageddon. I've spoken before about a CDC/Homeland Security campaign for zombie preparedness and it seems that our pals across the pond are following suit. In response to a freedom of information request from a concerned citizen, the British government released its plan for rebuilding after the zombocalypse.
Basically, it outlines the chain of command and who would be in charge of what if civilization was crushed in the jaws of the undead. While it's nice that they have a plan for what happens after it's all over, but I'd be more concerned with what they are going to do during the apocalypse. If 28 Days Later is to be believed, English zombies are the horrible kind that run really fast. They did say that you have to "Fully disconnect the brain-stem from the body through either blunt force or full head removal". Good advice. If nothing else they should at least institute a physical fitness program to get the Queen's subjects ready to sprint from the slobbering beasts.
