A Welcome Boost For Industry

Good news everyone! At lest one sector of the British economy is booming!

Stab and bullet-proof vests are being ordered in their tens of thousands to protect employees from increased levels of aggression


The Oxfordshire-based Body Armour Company said it had received about 10,000 orders for protective vests from local government, with frontline NHS staff accounting for most of them. The most popular item requested by councils is the £300 Home Office-approved KR1 stab vest. The firm said it was also receiving more orders for body armour from teachers, whom it views as its 'biggest growth market'.

It seems we will find ourselves in a fine position to make the transition from a house-price economy to a senseless violence economy, congratulations to Gordon & co. for their far sightedness.

If stab-proof vests become garment in general use, I forsee a new problem at casualty: the victim of 'friendly stabbing'. What I mean is where a friend stabs someone to test out the vest, with no intention of causing injury, but does so nevertheless.
