Accuracy in Media

It’s an interesting read, especially on how doomsday ‘preppers’ (as they’re called) are reliable customers for military surplus stores:

“Preppers” – as in “preparing for an apocalypse” – are an eerily steady part of the clientele at M&G, a military supply surplus store on Granby Street.

War, terrorist attacks, ominous calendar dates (remember Y2K?) — even elections — can spike their numbers. In between, they arrive in a reliable trickle: two or three customers a week looking for gas masks, chemical suits and food rations.
