28 Oct 2007
It is a grisly scenario: 650,000 deaths, with bodies piled up in shipping containers before being buried in mass graves all over the country. That is the nightmare envisaged by the Government in what it describes as the "very likely" event of a bird flu pandemic. The alarming prediction is contained in a confidential Home Office document drawn up to help councils and other organisations deal with a catastrophic outbreak of the deadly H5N1 strain of the virus... Other proposals contained in the paper include suspending exhumation powers and coroner's juries and cancelling inquests into deaths from 'natural causes' in prisons. [Dollars to doughnuts, Blackwater USA, Halliburton and KBR already have their contracts drawn up to assist the Bush dictatorship during martial law in an avian flu pandemic. Recall that Blackwater deposited more than 135 security contractors in New Orleans less than 36 hours after the levees broke exploded. --LRP]
