    Default Gold

    No, not Spandau Ballet! At least they have some and love this bit:

    Germany has around eight times more gold than the UK, after Gordon Brown sold more than half of the UK's reserves between 1999 and 2002 when prices were at a 20-year low.
    Analysts say gold could still hit $2000/oz this year, meaning the UK could have sold its gold for £16billion, as opposed to £2billion.
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    They stole it in the first place so we might as well exercise our superior military might and help ourselves to it.

    Ah,

    You'd sell your gold first and then print money????

    Might as well print all 50 bln and keep gold that will go up in price.

    Gordon Brown actively tried to destroy this country. And in the process he gave the left the idiotic idea that the past 10+ years were sustainable and slackers who don't feel like contributing don't have to.

    And as usual free-market capitalism gets the blame.

    It was free market in action with banks doing what they wanted without any regard for the future - complete failure of regulation.

    There's nothing free market about the government molesting the money supply and setting the interest rates.
