Our wise masters at the UK’s Home Office have decreed that, being bears of little brain, Her Majesty’s loyal subjects can’t be trusted to distinguish between Preparing for Emergencies, the official government site designed to
scare the living shite out of us all by waving the threat of a terrorist attack in our faces offer useful information to concerned citizens about the government’s plans for coping with a terrorist attack, and this parody.
Dear Mr Scott,
Regarding your website, www.preparingforemergencies.co.uk
We run the Government website for the Preparing for Emergencies public information campaign, on www.preparingforemergencies.gov.uk, and are very concerned that the material on your site will confuse people about the sensitive advice and information that we are giving to the public.
This is a very is [sic] serious campaign that should not be trivialised. In the interests of helping people to cope in the event of a crisis or a disaster we would ask that you to take down the site, immediately, and not put it up again in another guise.
Quite right too. That the site is a parody is concealed by such fiendish means as heading up every page with the logo of the Department of Vague Paranoia, and like, totally screwing with your head by pointing out in the Terms and Conditions for the site that
This is a parody. Don’t take any of the advice on it seriously.
I fear that it won’t be possible to whizz Mr Scott off to Guantanamo immediately given the appalling influence of 60’s liberalism over the pill-popping leftist judges we have to endure in this country, so I’ll just say this: if I needed a website built, I’d feel it to be my patriotic duty to push the commission in Mr Scott’s direction, if only to ensure that he no longer has time to engage in this kind of Objectively Satiritical activity.
For shame, Thomas Scott.
