Stock up on canned food for stock market crash, warns former Gordon Brown advisor
Doom?
"A former advisor to Gordon Brown has urged people to stock up on canned goods and bottled water as stock markets around the world slide.

Damian McBride appeared to suggest that the stock market dip could lead to civil disorder or other situations where it would be unreasonable for someone to leave the house.

“Advice on the looming crash, No.1: get hard cash in a safe place now; don't assume banks & cashpoints will be open, or bank cards will work,” he tweeted.

“Crash advice No.2: do you have enough bottled water, tinned goods & other essentials at home to live a month indoors? If not, get shopping."

Interesting he mentioned bottled water. Will the stock market affect the public works/water system? Or does he know something more ominous is coming?

My thoughts exactly. Why would he say to stock up on bottled water unless something more than just a stock market crash was coming?

if the economy tanks bad enough the whole financial system could shut down, effecting oil, gas and transportation. This could in worst case scenario impact water; although I hope there is some fail safe for our water system.

Following a career with HM Customs and Excise, McBride joined Her Majesty's Treasury while Gordon Brown was Chancellor of the Exchequer, and after coming to the attention of Brown he was appointed Head of Communications at the department in 2003. Within two years he was working as Brown's special adviser, and oversaw his campaign to become prime minister in 2007.

so we're talking someone who ran brown's campaign to become PM, telling people that the shit is about to hit the fan. interesting times.

even in a really bad scenario there would still be rationed water and food to go round. the military would distribute it at designated points to citizens with identification.

starvation or dehydration wouldnt be the real worry, the main worry would be other humans.
