Beer: Too Many

Someone in Leicester clearly had much too much beer...

And, apparently, zombie invasion is not considered as such, but "emergency plan [may have] some elements [that] could be applied if the situation arose". We all now breathe a deep sigh of relief. Except possibly the "Concerned Citizen". They will probably stay locked down in their own cellar with dwindling beer supplies. Which, I guess, can only be a good thing. The bad thing is, of course, waste of scarce tax payer resource. Unlike, say, in Australia (which I found when my Google-fu failed me just now), in Britain "[m]ost requests are free". And, it seems, all are dealt with with due diligence. I won't be surprised if Leicester City Council is now busy considering including a few contingencies into its emergency plan. Like, silver bullets, crosses, and stakes. What a horrible waste! And to also think that this has made the BBC News website today, too. As if nothing more pressing is going on. To top it all, there was no mention of how wasteful and silly this whole thing is. Which means that not only Leicester council tax money is being squandered, but also everybody else's license fee. Ridiculous.

Worst of all, it made me write about it, instead of something better suited for a beer Friday...
