The socks of businessman Peter Jones are to take over the management of the economy the government have said. Jones who is famous for being a Romanian Ridgeback on the TV programme Dragon's Den is said to be delighted at the news.
Jones' socks first shot to fame when the star who is 7foot 3 tall first flashed them in the den. The socks were so bright they blinded the rest of the dragons enabling Jones to invest £3.50 in a fake fruit company.
The socks have continued to enable Jones to become the richest man in Britain, he is now rumoured to be worth more than 375 billion pounds. The socks advised Jones to invest in Heavy Metal, Heavy Metal sauce which tastes of pure steel. This proved an excellent choice as the product is now on sale in every single shop in the world.
The only recent failure that the socks have encountered was when they tried to launch the band Hamfatter into the excusive Jewish market.
Since the new year Jones' socks have been seen out with a variety of glamorous female undergarments and also have taken to using the CBE letters after their name.
The government said there are no socks in the world that we would trust more to run the economy than Peter's. However there are rumours that fellow dragon Theo Paphitis turned down the offer because of his latest Kebab shop venture.
