Don't worry we have the Black Eyed Children.

Black-eyed children (or black-eyed kids) are paranormal creatures that resemble children, with pale skin and black eyes, who are usually seen hitchhiking/panhandling, or are encountered on doorsteps of residential homes by the occupants.

Beware of the children cos' they're going to get you yeah.

Actually, I do. It was horrible. The government campaign on this one was a model of non-judgemental public health campaigning and I fully support it. If only more government initiatives could be run this way the world would be a better place.

Non-judgemental? As I remember it we were all going to die if we had had sex since VE Day. And all to spare the blushes of homosexuals and drug users.

Yes, non—judgemental. The message was don’t have unprotected sex with a stranger or you might get HIV. It said nothing about whether or not you should have sex in the first place or about who you had sex with.

The UK was a much better place when tens of thousands of people were getting mad with it on E's every weekend.

The youth of today need to get out more often instead of obsessing about shite on Twatter and Instagram

Agreed. The youth of today are a pathetic shower of shite fed a diet of social media, smart phones & shit food.

Mad fer it.

'Second Hand Smoke'. If it was as bad as was made out, most of Britain's population would be dead now from lung cancer.

'Alcopops'. Supposedly all kids were going to be off their faces on booze that tasted like orangeade, never seemed to happen though.

'Millenium bug/Y2K'. Never happened.

'Hard Brexit' (Oh wait, that hasn't not happened yet).

This is an interesting one. I've been on a few Brexit threads on Mumsnet and the Y2K never happened theory gets debunked by remoaners every time as they remember how hard IT departments worked to sort it out so it wouldn't happen. I know the company I was working for had such a project but I don't know what they did apart from claim vast quantities of overtime. So IT bods on here - was there a huge amount of work to prevent the world stopping or was it all just a cunning ploy to enrich a lot of contractors?

Which are the exact disease vectors for AIDS, anal sex with a drug injector being the acme.

But no, we are all at risk...

To be fair at the height of the AIDS panic, it was commonly quoted in the MSM that AIDS was going to spread rapidly from gays to straights via bisexuals, which was why everyone had to be careful and it shouldn't be thought of as a 'gay plague'. 

It didn't happen in large numbers though mainly because the sexual contact required to spread AIDS as I understand it is huge amounts of bumming.

I don't think people in the mainstream heterosexual world realised the scale of what was going on in the 'bath houses' in the 70s and 80s to enable the spread of AIDS. They thought it was just picked up casually like the clap.

Bird flu and assuming it's not just illnesses.

1984, 2000, 2012 - probably 2020 and 2030.

With bird flu there was the associated panic of a likely shortage of vaccines.  The pharmas likely made a pandemic packet.

The threat still lurks probably to be regularly resurrected whenever pharma profits dip.

The risk of transmission by different activities did not become understood until much later than that and, in any case, low risk is not the same as no risk. I knew two people who died in the original AIDS epidemic, one of them was a gay man who most likely caught it from unprotected anal sex and the other was a  woman who married a South African man and caught it from, I assume, vaginal sex (she didn't seem like the type to be taking up the arse).

I was engaged in a project around 1995 in anticipation of what would be the millenium bug, although nobody referred to it in those terms at the time. It was only in retrospect that I realised that was what we had been doing. So I guess more switched on places had it sorted well in advance.

Mad cow disease. We were all going to die if we had ever consumed a burger from a dodgy burger van. Less than 200 Brits have ever died from CJD.

Mind you, it did result in the end of the practice of grinding up farm animals, and then feeding them to other animals.

Do you remember when John Gummer fed his daughter a burger live on TV?

      Let's have a little fun. Post a link to your favourite Brexit scare story and then the best ones will be put to a poll to see which is the best. The only rule is they must appear on a respectable/MSM/mainstream website.
