Very interesting article here I stumbled across in the Daily Mail (By accident! I wasn’t reading it, honest.) about the British Prime Minister’s letters of last resort. These are the four handwritten letters that every new prime minister must write which are sealed in the safes of Britain’s four Vanguard nuclear submarines, to be opened if Britain has been destroyed in a nuclear attack, ordering the captain what to do. And we think Brian Cowen has to make hard decisions?
Fascinating and terrifying in equal measure.
