In the apocalypic Brit TV series The Last Train, the end of the civilised world is preceded by helicopters frantically buzzing to-and-fro across the UK, and other high-level noisy, if unknown activity from police cars and the like. I was cycling across London on 9/11, again when helicopters and police cars were buzzing around all over the shop.
Today, in Cardiff, two helicopters have literally buzzed past the office window and I’ve seen a fire engine or two hurtling across the main road. Not to mention that a fair few BBC News pages seem to have gone offline. Is something going on today I’m not aware of?
Never mind the fact that two hurricanes across the US in a month have the potential to knock out 25% of the US’s oil production facilities. Is Mother Nature wreaking her revenge?
