The entire Kingdom she hath pawned...

London - The Bank of England's Quantitative Easing Committee heard today a new slant on Quatrain #1-86 revealing the French soothsayer's hunch about the Queen's full moon schedule tomorrow.

Treasury analysts ruffled plenty of fiscal feathers with a recitation of Nostradamus' rhyming rant, concealed for decades on national security grounds:

On Eighth of March Twenty Twelve/The jubilee Queen shall descend to Hell/Her bankrupt reign shall ne'er be mourned/For the entire United Kingdom she hath pawned...

Predictably enough Bank of England Governor Mervyn King admonished the jobsworths' rhyming cutlets - er...couplets! - as total crap... especially their take on Nostradamus' supposed damning indictment of the phone hacking fiasco:

The Lenten Moon begins to swell/The Sun's sordid sagas of kiss 'n' tell/Whole bloody nation's gone to the dogs/As vile Queen Liz finally popeth her clogs.

King later tweeted his own interpretation of Quatrain #1-86 in a bid to diffuse the tension:

The fault's not ours but is in the stars/Her Majesty's Kingdom is ruled by Mars/A pox on ye peddlers of lunar doom/Damn'd Labour's to blame for this busted boom...

Prince Philip is 97.
