The War Game

The BBC reported this week on some newly released papers from the seventies that detailed, among other things, Britain's plans for nuclear war. My favorite excerpt:

The prime minister would be taken to his bunker (under the Cotswolds) but there were no plans at that time to evacuate civilians.

However, the papers showed art treasures from London and Edinburgh would be saved by being sent to slate mines in Wales.

Nice to know they had their priorities straight...
