“Turn left here.”

“But the sign says ‘DANGER: weak bridge liable to collapse’.”

“They’re just scaremongering. They want you to take the toll road.”…


“Johnny, don’t run across the busy road.”

“Stop scaremongering, dad. I can dodge them easily.”…


“Keep clear, that’s a high-tension cable.”

“Stop scaremongering, I’m wearing rubber boots.”…


“The sign says that this bit of beach gets cut off at high tide, and it’s coming in quite quickly.”

“They’re just scaremongering. We’ve got plenty of time.”…


“Don’t you think you’re going a bit too quickly for a narrow road like this?”

“Stop scaremongering. This car’s got great brakes.”…


“If we decide to leave the EU, there will be serious consequences that could cause disaster for this country.”

“Stop scaremongering. I’m only voting leave as a protest, we’ll never actually vote to go. And even if we do, it’ll be fine. What do those so-called experts know? The EU needs us more than we need them.”…


… “Oh, f—”


It’s not scaremongering if the threat is credible.
