IN AN ACT of defiance following his recent Court appearances, the Guv of the Bank of England, Ronnie King together with his twin brother Reg have thrown caution to the wind, along with £75 billion of other people's money.
Speaking at a news conference at the Blind Beggar venue in London's fashionable Whitechapel, a truculent Ronnie said 'I'm fed up wiv all this buggering about wiv the economy'.
'Me and Reg knows what's best and if people don't like it, they're welcome to discuss it wiv us over a pint. I'll even get the first round to show there's no 'ard feelings. Know what I mean? Any questions?'
Robert Pestoff, head of the BBC's Debt Unit, asked how Ron and Reg's plan to throw £75 billion away would help to reduce Britain's crippling burden.
'Reg and me is getting nuffin out of this so mind yer own bizness.' was Ronnie's withering reply.
'But' continued Pestoff unabashed, 'Surely dumping such large sums of quantitative easing in the economic fan will inevitably lead to a disastrous slow down for decades to come which will in turn gravely increase the danger of a sextuple dip recession and a return to the dark days of mob rule in the East End?'
The Guv's response was curt: 'Straighten 'im out, Reg. Right, no more questions? Good, Reg and me is off for a celebration knees-up wiv our friends in 'igh places.'
