Banking Think Tank Pourous (known to friends as 'Poor Us') has come up with a plan to save Europe from economic meltdown.
The idea is that for each country China saves from defaulting they will receive one of the famous Barclays Piggy Banks. After China has saved five countries - thought to be Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and France - they will have a full set of five Piggy Banks. This is a tremendous investment. To make the the Pigs unique they would be signed by Angela Merkel.
Chinese President Wu Yu said today that he was 'very interested' in the scheme which he thought 'an exciting approach to international relations.'
However Wu Yu wants more than a set of five Piggy Banks for bailing out Europe. Realising his position of strength he is understood to be asking for even more - private lessons on how to run a capitalist economy!
