London - (Fiscal Ass Mess): Bank of England governor Mervyn King warned today that even if the printing presses keep churning out tens of billions in brand new fifty quid notes 24/7 for the next 10 years the country is so screwed over that the word bankrupt is far too generous a description.
"Remember the PMQ when Old Tone told the Opposition that the only black hole (in the public finances) was in the space where the Conservative party's brain used to be?" King asked.
The BoE governor was referring to his predecessor Barry - no, wait! Eddie - George, not that exonerated Dando slayer! - yes, Eddie George's grim 1998 warning that trouble loomed ahead in the form of a $36 billion Bernard Madoff Ponzi scam.
