Oh, for crying out loud:
Honeymoon couple are first Swine flu cases in Britain – London Evening Standard
Killer flu virus ‘already circulating in London’– London Evening Standard
Flu could hit 40 per cent of UK population– London Evening Standard
In other words, more predictions of impending doom from the national press, creating mass moral and social panic. Hospitals and GPs will soon be overwhelmed by people claiming they have got the flu. The country suffers collective nervous breakdown…. and you bet they will blame Gordon Brown for that too!
PS, I also read this bad joke in another newspaper:
Just been to the doctors. He said I might have swine flu so he gave me some oinkment.
