Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And the British military is stockpiling ammunition: UK begins stockpiling at military bases to prepare for no-deal Brexit:

Britain has begun stockpiling food, fuel, spare parts and ammunition at military bases in Gibraltar, Cyprus and the Falklands in case of a no-deal Brexit, Sky News has learnt.

Extra supplies are also being built up at bases in the UK to reduce the risk of the armed forces running short and being unable to operate if it suddenly becomes much harder to import and export day-to-day goods after 29 March.

Which invites the question: who are they planning to shoot after Brexit?

In case the Spanish start looking at Gibraltar a little too fondly. Brexit doesn't mean a fascist drift only at home: external enemies are always needed to distract the populace from the real culprits who plunged the UK into this clusterfuck.

in anticipation of widespread civil disturbance.

We are the country of Peterloo and Tonypandy. The upper classes always think the lower orders must occasionally be kept inline by the scent of blood and close quarters gunpowder. This is just the latest excuse

keep to the Fen Causeway
