The Gov. has stated that if/when BF arrives in this country and makes the leap between birds and humans, they will vacinate "high risk" workers. These include NHS staff, police and bus drivers. All well and good, but they have forgotten one group of people: Supermarket staff. I work in a supermarket. In the last 6 years, I've had three bouts of flu and one case of chickenpox. This is about average for a supermarket GA(general assistant+crow). Because we work in close proximity to the public, it's easy to catch whatever they are carrying. And once a GA is infected, it quickly spreads to anyone else he/she was working with. If BF hits these shores, the majority of supermarket workers will simply quit; no one is going to risk dying for the wages Tesco, Sainsbury, Morrisons etc pay. This will leave the whole country up s""t creek. With no workers to distribute food, starvation becomes a real possibility. Think I'm overstating the danger? Consider this: The Big Four currently employ more staff than the Army, Navy and RAF combined. Yeah, it's not exactly brain surgery, but it's still a Hell of a lot of people to replace.
