Yeah, the directive (if it is still in force: it's kind of hard to find
out) long predates the existence of IP :)q

(in any case, AIUI this applies if Britain has been attacked and all
members of the chain of command are gone. I don't think the BBC's
website dropped off the air becasue London was nuked, though if it was
with only two days left working there I'd be annoyed at the timing.)
