I am not a gold bug but it is interesting to read of measures being taken to 'contain' gold in a country. Be warned.

According to Egypt News, the country's airport has intercepted 59 shipments of gold directed for the Netherlands "worth tens of millions." The gold, as well as an indeterminate amount of foreign currencies, was hidden in pillow cases: uh, cotton may not show up on X-Rays, but gold sure does. We eagerly await to learn how big the decline in the country's official holdings 75.6 tonnes of gold will be after this most recent episode confirming that gold is precisely money. And all this happening despite gold's complete and thorough inedibility.

Yup better get your gold hoard out of the UK now.

I'm off to Belgium and Netherlands next week by car, so I'll offer. However you might want to consider getting a gold Rolls Royce like Goldfinger. laugh.gif
