Message from Douglas Alexander, Minister for the
Welcome to the Preparing for Emergencies web site.
This summer we are sending an information booklet 'Preparing
for Emergencies - What you need to know' to every home in
the UK. While it won't panic people, it'll hopefully convince
them to reelect me and all of my Labour cronies next year.
We are also launching a national advertising campaign letting
you know to look out for the booklet coming through your letterboxes
during August. In no way does this resemble the Reader's Digest
This campaign is not in response to a particular threat, unless
you count the threat from the Liberal Democrats.
Public safety is the Government's number
one ten priority (the
top three are reelection, kissing George Bush's arse, and stopping
Gordon Brown becoming PM). We must be prepared
to deal with any emergency, whatever it is or wherever it
comes from. And that includes zombie attacks! And zombie pirate attacks!
And killer robots! And both at the same time! Are YOU ready?
Please read the booklet, keep it somewhere handy and then
get on with your everyday life, citizen.
DOUGLAS ALEXANDER MP, MINISTER FOR THE CABINET OFFICE
