Gordons Home Guard

Gordon Brown plans Home Guard of 60,000 to deal with terror attacks.



I'm actually gobsmacked, astounded, flabberghasted! I am not feeling comfortable or good about this! 


"A new generation of Dad's Army-style volunteers is being trained to protect Britain from the threat of terrorism.

And just like the original wartime Home Guard recruits will come from all walks of life.

Some 60,000 civilians are being taught how to deal with terror strikes as part of what has been dubbed Gord's Army - after the scheme was unveiled yesterday by Gordon Brown.

The volunteers include shopkeepers, hotel workers, security guards and football stewards. But unlike the bumbling characters led by Captain Mainwaring in the hit TV comedy, their role will be deadly serious. Around half have already been shown how to react to bombings and other atrocities.

They will also be drilled on evacuation techniques and emergency treatment for blast survivors""

  1. Oh you can just imagine it. An army of petty jobsworths with clipboards fucking about.

    Even Churchill knew that the Home Guard would not stop the Nazi war machine if they ever landed enough troops on the UK mainland.

    Oh I am so going to mock this later when I stop laughing.

  2. It is severely mockworthy, if not a little sinister!

  3. Snotty sees most of us as terrorists. You must track down the No.10 briefing, priceless.

    I wonder how many will turn out to be included in the answer to Douglas Carswell's Illegal Immigrant Questions

  5. Carswell's Blog is good, I have added it to my blogroll.

    We are all terrorist or dissidents to Brown, we're trying to oust his government and he's power crazed and and isn't going to leave willingly.
