Ken Livingstone Is The BBC’s Voice Of the Apocalypse

“THIS is the Wartime Broadcasting Service. This country has been attacked with nuclear weapons.

“Communications have been severely disrupted, and the number of casualties and the extent of the damage are not yet known.”

In the 1970s, the BBC and the Government made ready for nuclear war:

“We shall bring you further information as soon as possible.”

“Meanwhile, stay tuned to this wavelength, stay calm and stay in your own homes… Remember there is nothing to be gained by running away… Make sure gas and other fuel supplies are turned off and that all fires are extinguished…

And here’s Ken:

“Water must not be used for flushing lavatories: until you are told that lavatories may be used again, other toilet arrangements must be made…”

Dear, dear, old Ken. Not nuclear war, just Maggie Thatcher…

Living With Ken

– June, Chenier
