Been thinking about the mass riots we had here last year. Take a big dose of that, add to the bird flu paranoia from the year before, blend it with fuel and food shortages  that come and go and there is your breakdown before a zed is even out in the public.

Some docs leaked after to riots gave an estimate of 7 days of no food supplies before law and order breakdown in the major metropolitan areas. With the police removed from the streets to protect vital infrastructure, the urban and suburban areas would effectively come under gang / criminal control before a military presence could be established. 7 DAYS!!!!!!

I'm glad I no longer live in London.

7 days is quick. But, imagine if some type of catastrophe made the monetary system inaccessible or the power forever go out.
