Digging for debt

A haul of 5kg of Anglo-Saxon gold has been found beneath a field in Staffordshire.
It's been labelled 'the equivalent of finding a new Lindisfarne Gospels or Book of Kells'.
However, I'm sure Alistair Darling must be wondering what percentage of the national debt he could pay off with this windfall. And if there's any more lying about?
The Government will soon be issuing us all with metal detectors to go forth and dig our way out of recession.
They'll label it a 'community heritage revenue scheme' and will agree to split the proceeds 50/50.
You heard it here first.
