image for Darling asks TV magicians to conjure up money
I bet they'd find a few quid stashed in his eyebrows.

A Government committee, set up to identify innovative ways of boosting Britain's faltering economy, has presented its first idea to Chancellor Alastair Darling.

Mr Darling unveiled the plan yesterday. Paul Daniels and Derren Brown will be invited to Number 10 for the day, where they will be expected to pull ten pound notes out of a hat.

"We know they can produce rabbits and pigeons out of thin air, so this is a logical next step," the chancellor explained. "The money can then be used to pump liquidity into the banking system - although if there's a decent looking horse running at Haydock that afternoon, we might decide to take a punt on it.

"Once again, this shows that the Government will do whatever it takes to protect our economy. If necessary, we'll even invite David Blaine over from America to stand on his head outside Buckingham Palace until the FTSE reaches 5000."
