Scottish Man Spends Over £2K Prepping For Post-Brexit Doomsday
Mark McLean believes the UK will fall into times of 'riots and public disorder' once Britain officially leaves the EU in March 2019. Optimistic, eh?
To combat this, he's spent more than £2,000 ($2,500) on essential survival gear such as food - including haggis, which seems like a good choice - as well as medical supplies, camping gear, army rations and even an axe in a bid to get himself through the 'chaos'.
The 33-year-old currently works as a customer services manager in a call centre in Glasgow, but when (note: 'when', not 'if' - he's very sure about this) the riots and public panic all kick off, he plans to escape to a new life to live off the lands in the far-removed areas of the Scottish Highlands.
Mark said: "Riots and public disorder is a guarantee with Brexit, come March. It won't be pretty for some time, I believe. The last period of riots saw the people focus on big businesses and government. This will still be the case.
"But the division in the Brexit argument might not see all the people join as one voice. This will make it all the [worse]. When people in this country start to realise what is happening it will be too late.
"It is due to the amount of confusion surrounding Brexit, the government has never been so unclear, this uncertainty isn't good for anyone. If food supplies and medical supplies are disrupted for longer than a week, that is when we will see it really kick off. People will not put up with it - there will be sheer panic, people will riot. Riots especially in the capital and cities all across the country, it will be big government and businesses that will be hit.
"You should never go against law and order, but how else would we get them to listen? We rely on them for our food, water and electricity - if that all goes, you will quickly see panic and disorder kick in."
Well, that's a chilling vision of our imminent future, isn't it? Hope things go at least a bit better than this; not sure I'm ready to live in a Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic wasteland, to be honest.
But Mark doesn't stop there, he's even self-trained to hunt deer and squirrels, collect rainwater to drink and he even plans to build a giant underground bunker - with fully functioning tunnel system.
If you're thinking this sounds like flashbacks to Cold War paranoia you wouldn't be far off - Mark reckons a Russian invasion is very likely in the post-Brexit days. Blimey.
He added: "If I head to the mountains in Scotland it will be far north west. I have been camping up that way and it is very remote. Away from riots and division of the people which will be in the cities.
"Also, it's furthest away from military bases as far as I am aware. These will be targets of an invading army such as Russia. The more remote and isolated, the better chance to avoid getting hurt or killed. As long as I know how to live of the land, I will wait it out."
As if all this wasn't enough, he even has a YouTube channel dedicated to his post-Brexit Doomsday prepping.
Hopefully the world won't implode in March - but if it does, then good luck to you, Mark. You're more ready for Brexit-fuelled Armageddon than the rest of us, that's for sure.
