David Cameron's garden at number 10 could be paying for itself soon. Over the last few years he has added a tree house, bouncy castle, pitch and put, croquet area, revolving greenhouse, water chute, Tarzan swing, bowling lawn, bandstand, pigeon shed, pizza oven, 5 aside football park, gnomes and a mini maze. All these horticultural side shows fade into the distance after the discovery of gold in the rambling stream that winds it's way through the bottom garden.
Mr Cameron has been panning for gold in Tully's stream for the last few years and over the last few weeks, been turning up the odd nugget or two. He can be seen in the gardens of 10 Downing street wearing khaki shorts and a cowboy hat most weekends. Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin gave the Prime Minister a Russian iron pan for his Christmas in 2011 and he has been religiously using it ever since.
Mr Cameron's great great grand-daddy Cameron Cameron was a well known prospector in the North of Scotland in the late 1800's and spent a life time amassing a small fortune from local rivers. It wasn't until the madness set in 1902 when he was swept away in the great flood at the River Dee leaving a tidy fortune of sixteen pounds and fifteen shillings to his heirs.
The city of London went wild at the news of David Cameron's gold claim and the FTSE closed 20 points up on the day.
