What £3 Billion in Pure Gold Looks Like

22 October 2008

£3 billion in gold... Don't let Gordon Brown see this photo, or he'll mess up and flog it off again like he did a few years ago.  Photo from The Daily Mail, taken from the vault under the Bank of England.

"There are around 15,000 bars in this picture alone - that's about 210 tonnes of pure gold, with a value of nearly £3 billion," According to The Daily Mail, "and there's plenty more out of view." Maybe it's indeed time to get a bar or two.

Our new chancellor must be furiously masturbating at this sight.
