    Re: Forgotten Public Panics

    Just thought of another one.

    Remember the (UK) Foot and Mouth crisis of 2001?

    I clearly remember all the panic that caused at the time, and I especially remember hearing and reading about many businesses in rural communities soiling their underpants due to both the prospect and actual cases of lost custom/revenue due to said crisis and their areas being in lockdown. A bloke who was in a cover band with my brother back then (and was in his early 50s at the time) was convinced that the F&M crisis was actually non-existent and all concocted by Blair and his 'New Labour' govt of the time as some 'hidden agenda' to put farmers and the like out of business and went on to opine that he (Blair) was the worst PM this country had ever had! Talk about totally BS conspiracy theories? I also remember about two years prior to then that very same person also admitted to being very anti-Thatcherite some ten or so years earlier!!

    Yes, I remember F&M as it affected what we did sending out engineers and meter readers. There had to be disinfectant trays they could use or we couldn't send them to any farm or even certain larger places.

    Re: Forgotten Public Panics

    Remember the 'Happy Slapping' craze that brought panic and terror to many of our streets during the latter half of the noughties?

    Where violent thugs would be giving their victim(s) a vicious pasting and it being filmed at the same time, then ending up on the likes of YouTube, etc.

    I seem to remember said craze being pretty much gone by about the latter half of 2011 and beyond, and thank god as well. Possibly a by-product of the 'chav' culture of that particular era.
