Come down to it with a bump

The cost of the Earth has fallen over the last ten years, according to a new world financial report.

As on 1 June 2001 the Earth costs £7,000,000,000,000 compared with £4,000,000,000 in 1981. In real terms, the cost of the Earth has actually fallen for the first time in over thirty years. By way of a comparison the Earth cost £18 10s 6d in 1927.

Chancellor Gordon Brown claimed it was the result of his financial prudence. "We have focussed on the core business and it's now cheaper to buy the Earth than it was under the Tories. Under Labour, Caribbean holidays, weddings and plumbers will now cost a little less" he added.
