UK will match every currency note in the world with a sterling note

Bank of England decided to let general public engage in quantitative easing. The decision was made after one of the money printing machines stopped working and all suppliers of spare parts refused to accept sterling as a payment. BoE was not able to pay in any other currency or gold as everything was sold off years ago with the proceeds being invested in public services.

The scheme will be open to anyone who has a computer and colour printer at home. The licence to print will be very similar to the driving licence - A, B, C, D and E. While 'A' will allow printing of up to £2 mln, 'E' will be given only to premium quantitative easers and allow to print £100 bln. There will be a theory test about the prudent government economic policies. The practical test will be passed only by individuals who can spend maximum amount of money in minimum amount of time without acquiring any assets.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
