Govt Imposes Night Curfew

March 12, 1906 ·

The government has announced a nationwide curfew starting tonight from 6pm to 8am. The news comes after the police lost authority and control of almost every city, with the latest outbreak of mayhem extending to attacks on docked airships around the country.

In north, south, east and west, thousands of police officers dedicated to regaining control of the streets struggled to do so and faced attacks from the public.

Her Majesty’s government has rushed through parliament new legislation allowing the police to arrest anyone caught flouting the new order.

Members of the public are advised to stay at home, and not to answer the door to anyone during the curfew.

There are bound to be critics of this announcement, esecially as special dispensation is being extended to cover industrialists, as well as the emergency services that assist the police.

With the fog now turning Britain into a ‘No-Go’ zone, many wonder how long till the whole country finally grinds to a halt. It is also unclear if there are enough officers to mount a visible presence on every street, which calls into question the effectiveness of this new development.

The government is to hold a crisis meeting tomorrow to discuss how to rid the nation of the fog, which seems to be the main catalyst for the current lawlessness.

How will the curfew affect you?
