Prepping (for Brexit)

Recommended Posts

Have decided to boost my larder with extra dried stuff (well stocked with canned) after the weekends scareganda in the media so I can last six weeks without having to fight the local retards in the supermarket for basics.

Have also added some bagged popcorn to the list as comfort food while I watch the mayhem of the fuckwitts.

In 2008 I was an OO with a big house and I had loads. Garage was replete of sacks of rice from Costco, stacks of 24-packs of beans, all sorts. The world didn't collapse as I expected and it took several years to use it all up.

This time I'm a renter in a tiny flat so just have to shove what I can under the bed.

Yep, I prepped early.  A few weeks of buying extra and I have a cupboard full of tinned food and a maxi pack of toilet rolls in the workshop.

I don't see any serious supply-led shortages but people panic buy at the slightest thing  so I wanted to be in the position of being able to avoid the shops for a month.

I haven't put any water in reserve as it beats me how that could be affected.

If there's a fuel shortage then I can work from home for weeks.

Sorted.

Bollocks, I can walk to work. However thinking  further about this it will probably be too dangerous with all the zombies wandering around looking for the last tin of meatballs that @stokiescum is hoarding.

You could just say that you had relocated to stay with stokie so that you didn’t starve to death.

True or barricade myself in to the nearest IKEA - death by meatball and Daim bar. No scrap that, nearest IKEA is Croydon, I'd rather take my chances with the zombies.

I shall adopt the following, works for all types of snowflake.

The problem is in a TEOTWAWKI event, the power goes out and you lose the lot. Better to have freeze dried stuff. Vesta curries.

thats armagendon time,thats when i go native up the moors with my macheti.lots of sheep up there you see.you would be surprised how cool you can keep stuff if you dig a hole 2 ft deep and line it with straw.and wood for cooking is easy to get.but by then your going to be attracting the locals for a free barbique.on a seriese note its less hastle to buy a 300 quid caravan and put it in your yard ie cooker built in.but you cant beat tins hot or cold i used to go camping and not bother warming any up.you can buy milk with a long shelf life and live on tins and cereal.for a month easily.

Dunno.  Vesta curry reminds me of my childhood. The treat for Saturday night. My parents knew how to treat us well. xD

I have vague memories of Vesta beef curries in my childhood. My mother, for reasons best known to herself would serve them with a side of sultanas and chopped pineapple!

So long as I can live off jams and pickles and roadkill, and scrumped veg, I'll be ok. If the leccy stays on I also have a freezer full of fish and shellfish, and roadkill.

the best thing is about a caravan particualy if its old is its great storage and often cheaper to buy than a shed has its own toilet,heating is more secure and has a cooker built in.you can let the kids play in it in summer or use it for drunk guests.

That would be a kind interpretation. I would liken her culinary skills more to the old woman in the Vicar of Dibley who put the weird combinations of food together with a dash of lunacy.

I’m getting my last ever German company car delivered next week.

I just hope it doesn’t break down during the lease as parts will surely be impossible to come by (although clearly it doesn’t matter if the emissions control system, indicators etc go, as they’re unused or not used anyway).

      There is a danger of a second Referendum where Remain is made a Referenduman option, and the Leave vote split between two options, Deal or no Deal options.
      Unless transferable votes are used (or even if), even a minority of Remainers could win a second Referendum.
      This would tie the Government's hands to negotiate to Remain at any cost. This would be disastrous for the UK.
      Article 50 dictates that we leave on 29 March 2019.
      As this is an Article of a Treaty, it can only be set aside with the unanimous consent of all EU members at the highest level.
      It would only take one EU member to obstruct this to place the UK in an impossible position.
      If we petitioned to Remain, or extend time to negotiate a better deal, I am absoloutely certain that the EU would exploit this to the UK's extreme disadvantage.
      In particular, we would be obliged to join the Euro, as all new EU member states already are.
      Secondly, we would lose our EU rebate, which expires in 2021 anyway. It would not be renewed and we would probably be forced to increase our EU contributions on top of that.
      Additionally, pressure could be exerted by Ireland and Spain relating to the borders or status of NI and Gibraltar.
      The UK's nuclear deterrent could come under the control of an EU-wide military force, and so we could lose overall control of our deterrent. This would conflict with NATO obligations and could paralyze our military options.
      I think we still have vetos on certain other EU policies, which we would be forced to surrender.
      I hear no politicians or journalists telling us this.
      We may be sleepwalking into a disaster.
      The one hope is that with our current political chaos, it will be impossible to organse a second Referendum in time to halt our Leaving.
      Ironically, the longer the disasterous Treason May hangs on, the less likely a Second Referendum to Remain will take place.
      Our best hope now is we stay with this useless crone and grit our teeth for Leaving without a deal - a 'Hard Brexit'. The opportunity for a good deal has been wasted thorugh her utter incompetence.
      I see little prospect of the EU improving the terms for our Leaving. There is little incentive for them to do so.
      After Leaving,  Article 49 would define the process for rejoining and the implications (like joining the Euro) would have to be made clearer to the public.
      TLDR; We are either badly fucked, or really totally fucked.

      This story was quietly released over the Bank holiday weekend and has got next to no mainstream UK Press coverage - mainly because it goes against the apparent agenda and highlights what naive, gullible fools lots of UK media folk are.
      I think this is pretty major.
      It is basically Facebook admitting, by closing down some 600 plus pages, groups and accounts, that a foreign power, in this case Iran, has been using social media to influence opininion on several matters key to the unity and security of the UK - namely BREXIT, Scottish Independence and with positive media for one Jeremy Corbyn. Israel, and UK opinion of Israel, is also mentioned but you have to wonder whether this also includes the big rise of anti-semitism on UK social media.
      Not a dicky bird from the UK mainstream media about this. If it had been, for example, pro-Trump stuff then you can imagine the hysteria.
      But this is OUR country and this suggests that a foreign power, Iran, was interfering in our internal politics.
      So why no mainstream coverage?
      Why aren't the likes of the So-Called BBC, Sky News, etc, screaming hell about this? Why aren't our politicians? Are any of them even aware that this happened?
      Well, our mainstream media seems to focus on breaking up the UK as a good thing. It is also, IMPO, increasingly pro muslim and anti-Israel/Jewish people. No need to say anything about BREXIT. Then there is Corbyn.
      Does this Facebook story simply highlight something much bigger going on in the UK with how public opinion is shaped and presented? I suspect it does.
      Look at the almost hourly row in the US about possible Russian use of social media to influence the last US election. Then consider how this story about the UK got pushed out on a wet bank holiday weekend, was given virtually no coverage and then was buried.

      This is a huge story. It should have had massive coverage. You have to ask yourselves why not.

      Well I suppose it was only a matter of time but now DOSBODS is being used as a primary news source in order to win an argument on Reddit.
      Ok it's not huge but you have to start the thread somewhere!
