Gordon Brown revealed his controversial plan to plug the black hole in Britain's finances today, with the launch of his new website cashforgord.web. The scheme will be publicised by extensive media advertising.
In an exclusive interview he explained: "The idea is simple. As I have already sold off 600 tons of Britain's gold reserves, it is now time for everyone to pull together and help out. Any unwanted gold jewellery should be sent to cashforgord.comwhere it will be melted down and sold on the open market. I can assure everyone that the proceeds will be put to good use."
Shadow chancellor George Osborne ridiculed the proposals saying: "This is too little too late, and is yet another failed initiative from a failed Government."
