Only a few leaves ever stand between Britain and chaos

From the fantastic When The Wind Blows

Nuclear threat sparked tea worry
The threat of a nuclear attack on the UK in the 1950s caused concern over the supply of tea, documents reveal....Government officials planning food supplies said the tea situation would be "very serious" after a nuclear war.

"It would be wrong to consider that even 1oz per head per week could be ensured," they stated...

Radiation burns, mass death, the collapse of central government, and a return to the lifestyle of the middle ages we could just about take. But to do it without a cuppa- oh, the humanity!
