Survivalist in the UK

#1
I was on the phone to one of my old mate last night, the conversation moved from the usual booze, birds and Swedish Au pairs to "Survivalism" in the UK.
It turns out that he had stocked up on canned food rice, lentils, a jenny, medical supplies etc during the run up to "Swine Flu Mania!" and the recession. Now Terry is not some gun nut from the USA, but a retired Actor/Sparky living in the leafy suburbs of London.

It got me thinking, are there survivalists in the UK or just Ray Mears fans? :D

I'm still waiting that lottery win I'll eventually get (yeah right) and I'll be moving into a remote scottish area and stocking up on rifles and ammunition....and pornography.

You mean you haven't got a couple of weeks worth of food, half a dozen Jerry cans of water, a Gas burner and a genny in the celler?

Must be me being paranoid.

I've got the porn sorted, just need to work on the rest-including the "remote" bit.

You're not allowed to be survivalist in the UK. It's discrimination.

I have water, gas cooker and food and fuel for vehicle stored for 3 months use, just in case, all in rotation, so that it is current and fresg, and a box of ten 24 army ration packs, the way things are going, it looks like its going to be needed, swine flu, recession, war, terrorism, those of us who remain strong will win.

Once the disaster is over, we will be strong, and ready to take over the resources left, and yes, I do have a supply of seeds so I can grow my own food if Stephen Kings book, the stand come true.

Not sure.

For my part, I have a big 'ol box of stuff scavenged from half eaten rat packs over a year or so, it amounts to a pretty big bunch of food, but since I've had it since 2002, I'm not sure whether it's still ok to eat :(

Like the Dr Pepper advert says, what's the worst that could happen? :wink:

A good way of practicing survivalism in the UK could be to emigrate.

It never was. But since you obviously survived eating the rest, you are therefore of excellent breeding stock, and must embrace your duty to our species by making your DNA available to as many women as possible. Stop reading this and get on the pull. Society will thank you for it.

Been there, done that, now living on a fault-line within sight of an active volcano :p , got a goodly stash of rations along with gas and 240v back-up, just hope we never need it. :D
