    These are the meetings that the people who really run the country(senior civil servants) tell the Ministers what they want to hear.......

    I work in emergency response in the oil industry and did a short attachment in civil emergency planning.

    Based on what they decide threat level wise at the Cobra meeting, resources etc are allocated / pre positioned. One thing I found hard to get my head around, because it's very cold and hard is the calculated death tolls. It's generally assumed that any mass casualty event will overwhelm hospital morge facilities so temporary morge facilities are brought in. For example during the Olympics tucked away around the corner was a temporary large capacity morge.

    So I guess at the Cobra meetings there's some nice biscuits and sandwiches with the crusts cut off, but once they've finished there's quite a lot of work done behind the scenes.

    Is it me or is everybody slightly disappointed when they find that cobra stands for 'cabinet office briefing room A'?

    Said meetings and full scale action would have been swifter if, for example, the gated communities of Surrey and the like were looking like flooding....

    I don't think the Bullingdon Club give a rats *ss about flooding anywhere it doesn't affect them, theirs or their interests!

    It should be called COBBLERS! We've had flooding in Lancs and Cumbria for nearly 2 weeks due to poor defenses.

    Ok I'm on a lot of drugs (prescription) at the moment and may have missed the point! What a knob!

    So in the instance of the flooding... Well it makes it look as if there doing something... Let's hope there biscuits don't get too soggy and drop off in there tea....

    Apologies - back in the room now!

    Taken from another forum, it appears they can't do anything constructive even if they wanted to.

    Like this. I am told. "War Book". Except for real. Here's the trailer. I am sure that you can find it in its full version somewhere. The whole is better than the trailer.
