WHOA! British Official Warning Public: Stock up on food, water, canned goods & cash – enough to survive 1 month – Banks may CLOSE(Stock meltdown)

The “Independent” Newspaper in London has published a stunning story today that an aid to former Prime Minister Gordon Brown is warning the public to:
1) Have cash money in your possession as banks may close and credit cards may not work

2) Have plenty of canned Goods and water to survive ONE MONTH in your house.

3) Agree with your family on a meeting place in case communications go down and you have to leave ! ! ! !

Folks here in the USA should take this advice RIGHT NOW. Don’t wait. If you wait and other folks don’t, they will strip the stores bare before you ever get there.

It’s not just him saying it though:

The former special adviser added that financial levers, such as cutting interest rates and Quantitative Easing (QE), which the Government was able to use in 2008, are no longer available – a view that has been echoed by other market critics.

Alistair George, chief strategist at Edison Investment Research, said: “By keeping rates so low policymakers took the risk that they would face a crisis without having room to cut rates, and their bluff has been called as markets demand yet another round of QE. This is unfortunately where the world has got to by keeping ultra-loose monetary policy in place for far too long after the crisis of 2008, in our view.”

Alongside fears of a slowdown in Chinese growth and demand, investors are also spooked by fears over elections in Europe’s debt-laden countries Greece, Spain and Portugal.
