No more Boom and Bust

If they floated the Lewes Pound now I might trade in my Sterling.

I predict that we have the Euro before the end of the year. On that note, I would prefer the Lewes Pound though. Go on flame me but don't say I didn't tell you.

I'd prefer a medieval bartering system to the Euro. Still, look on the bright side.
Imagine if you can.....
A cold Scottish house, a clock ticking in the background, rain pouring onto the windows.
In the corner of the dimly lit room, sits a grey broken man, frail and scared.
A telephone that never rings sits on the table.
The lonely man has not had a visitor in years, no mail, no contact to his ex wife or children. His only friend is an old radio crackling it's way through Woman's Hour in the dark kitchen.
He knows he is dying. He knows no one will come to mop his brow or hear his last words. He doesn't know when it will happen, so he stays firmly glued to his chair in case the grim reaper would mock him by grasping him on the loo, or naked in the bath. He knows he will not be discovered by family or friends, he knows his corpse will rot, glass eye shining in the putrid flesh where it falls to eventually be discovered by a TV licence inspector calling to find out why he has not renewed.
He waits for death, frightened and totally alone.
His tight lips muttering "no more boom and bust....."

Too optimistic for me also. But then I always was a glass half full kinda guy, and if you can't endulge in a spot of scheudenfraude at Brown's personal anguish, then what can you afford to endulge in, these days?

I can provide the bust, can you provide the boom?

Is there any chance that this Scottish cottage is available as a holiday let?

If you lend someone £20 and don't see them again it was probably worth it.
