The BBC has secretly prepared emergency scripts to be read out on the radio in case of major blackouts in the UK this winter, due to energy shortages.
According to a report from The Guardian, the BBC has, as part of routine planning for emergency scenarios, created scripts which would help “reassure the public” if there was to be a “major loss of power” in the National Grid, which supplies England, Scotland, and Wales. Northern Ireland is not part of the same electric grid and would therefore be unaffected.
During national emergencies, the BBC has a responsibility to provide information to the country, as part of government civil planning. The BBC scripts, which would be broadcast on FM and long-wave frequencies that are usually used for BBC Radio 2 and 4, would warn members of the public that blackouts could last for up to 48 hours.
One script for a hypothetical news bulletin warns that “emergency services are under extreme presssure… [and] people are being advised not to contact them unless absolutely necessary.” Another script notes that “the government has said it’s hoped power will be restored in the next 36 to 48 hours. Different parts of Britain will start to receive […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
