UK outlines zombie invasion defence plans

The British government has revealed its planned response to a future zombie invasion threat.

It is the second time that officials in the UK have provided a tongue-in-cheek response to a member of the public who has requested such information through the FOIA ( Freedom of Information Act ). Last year Bristol city council provided a "top secret" document outlining strategies for dealing with a zombie pandemic including advice on how to kill a zombie and methods for recognizing codewords broadcast over radio and TV.

This time it was the Ministry of Defence that replied. "In the event of an apocalyptic incident (eg zombies), any plans to rebuild and return England to its pre-attack glory would be led by the Cabinet Office, and thus any pre-planning activity would also taken place there," read the statement. "The Ministry of Defence's role in any such event would be to provide military support to the civil authorities, not take the lead. Consequently, the Ministry of Defence holds no information on this matter."

"A zombie invasion is a problem that may seem to belong in a horror film rather than to real life, but, none the less, the British government believes it has worked out the best way to cope with one."

Zombie invasion is a bit of a misnomer.. I can see I wasn't the only one confused by the thread. In Haiti and other places where voodoo is rife they have their own particular brand of zombies. But in this case they are living,breathing people with a shallow pulse made to look dead. They are not exactly going to cause a breach of national security so they don't count. And rabies is really self-explanatory because I can imagine the concept of flesh eating coming from this notion. I wouldn't be surprised when it concerns nano technology because it could lead in any direction. A lot of allegedly u... [More]

Should we also plan for if the Volturi decide to start a war with the humans? The Volturi are fictional.

I gotcha, I gotcha. -nudgenudgewinkwonk- His point is, zombies in the non science fictional way are not fictional. That is absolutely horrifying. How do these people sleep at night? In very expensive PJ's and bedding while laughing at us common people. lol (I don't know why I'm laughing but what else can you do?) The majority of rich people do not care for the rest of us. Otherwise they would not be as rich as they are. You cannot own half the worlds wealth (Rothschild's) while there is kids all voer the world starving to death and be a nice person. That is my view anyway.

Yes, I guess that is true... sad though, about those kids and their family members. Then again, what comes around goes around. Law of the universe. I like to think that too, but then we all sit here and let this stuff happen and we allow these bankers to dictate how the world works. I sometimes wonder if by not doing anything it's our own fault. But it won't change unless everyone actually see's how it is. It's funny I told my family about the national banking system and how we are constantly in more debt every year because of it and how it's never ending. First response was "yeah it's our gov...

The first major zombie movie was "Night of the Living Dead" with also several other sequels of "Return of the Living Dead", which blamed the incident on a Toxic Military Agent called Trioxin. Which isn't too far fetched. But let us remember that the United States is huge. If your going to take over a country, change it's views, assure allegiance. You need a major catalyst that will cull the majority of the population. The 40+ cases we've seen so far are but tests. First introduce the idea into population like a fashion trend, get widespread data like sorta like getting Tv Ratings, and if the f... [More]

I think some people are being a little naive panning the Government for having anti zombie tactics at hand. The MoD mentioned an apocalyptic incident. This could come in any number of forms, and any government that doesn't have contingency plans for and event like that would be asking for trouble.

Something's on the horizon and we don't know exactly what shape it could come in. It could be a biological pandemic,a chemical spill,nuclear attack or a natural disaster. They could even be ready for an alien invasion for all we know. Tbh I think these all take precedence over any rabies rel... [More]
