The British government is in full on prepper mode right now, gearing up for the possibilities and problems that could come about as a result of a no-deal Brexit. The army is on standby to ensure peace and stability as well as to provide an infrastructure for the delivery of crucial supplies such as food, medicine, and fuel, especially in areas which could be the most prone to shortages. In order to provide for this scenario, the British government is also stockpiling necessary supplies.
From underground bunkers and tactical weapons to heavily armored vehicles, they were taught new ways to deal with a zombie apocalypse or a natural disaster – and also met some TV stars.
Hundreds of survivalists and so-called ‘Preppers’, of all ages and levels of ‘experience’, descended on the Salt Lake City, Utah, suburb of Sandy on Friday for the nation’s first ever PrepperCon.
During the two-day expo, they were shown specially-equipped underground bunkers, learned new ways to store food, tried out solar powered flashlights – and even dressed up as zombies.
They were also greeted by actors from the AMC hit show ‘The Walking Dead’, including Addy Miller, who took pictures with fans and acted as a judge in an emergency preparedness food cook-off.
AFTER “the Crunch”—the total collapse of the global economy—trade seized up, the power grid shut down and paper money became worthless. Riots gutted city centres. Looters picked them clean.

The “Great Die-Off” hit Florida especially hard. Millions of suntanned retirees died of starvation or chronic diseases after the government stopped paying for their pensions and pills.
