London - (ET Mess): A rogue UFO that has been circling above Hong Kong for the last six months emerged as the prime suspect behind a technical glitch that shut down the London Stock Exchange for seven hours on Monday.
A stock exchange spokesperson said today she had been warned earlier of alien reprisals after leaked press reports about security.
These claimed UK police are poised to pounce on a Hong Kong Bank which had financed a Pentagon gagging arrangement about the existence of the Asian UFO.
The fiasco is a huge personal blow to Furse on the day that saw European and US stock exchanges soar to stratospheric levels following the White House's nationalization of key US lenders Fannie May and Freddie Mac.
The LSE seizure did not affect rival London trader Chi-X Europe which 'had a bloody brilliant day' according to City sources.
The company is named after the Chinese word Chi - or qi - meaning 'life force'.
