Alastair Darling shocked members of the cabinet today with his new plan to save the economy.
He has set aside £1.5 million of treasury funds to buy a million eurolottery tickets.
Alastair told the front bench team that euromillions represents the best odds of all the lotto games and as long as he waited for a triple rollover he'd be laughing.
Gordon Brown was said to be a little taken aback as he had already planned to sell the British Olympic team to the Abu Dhabi United group who recently took contol of Manchester City FC.
A cabinet source said that everyone was quite excited at the idea and were busy coming up with number combinations.
The government office have so far failed to confirm or deny that such an idea exists.
