Merv Fires Up The Presses

Recommended Posts

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/south_east/7275858.stm

Firefighters have put out a large blaze at the Royal Mint in the south Wales town of Llantrisant.

More than 20 appliances were called to the fire, which was confined to one building at the 38-acre complex.

Sounds as though it is only coins and not notes. If they lost the ability to print notes - even temporarily - it would destroy the economy. Imagine if there was a run on bank notes... nothing from the cash machines.... I hope they have some back-up facilities. Or maybe we'd just have to start using Euros as a stop-gap.

Imagine if there was a run on bank notes...

Let's start one. Just for fun.

1) Go into every bank on the high street and tell them theres a suspicious item atatched to the ATMs.

2) Walk up and down the high street pointing out to the bemused queues that all the ATMs are shut. Tell them there's a run on all the banks.

Err.

3) Go to jail.
