So where’s the dilemma, I hear you ask. Well, clearly I don’t need this money, as I have comfortably survived the last three years without it. So what shall I do with it? I could donate it to Warren Buffett, just to ease the pain - but I don’t have his account number. Or I could donate it to charity – but which one? I could hand it back to the Treasury, requesting that they leverage it and hand the proceeds over to Mervyn to help out with the next round of QE – but I’m not doing that. I could go down the shops - I received a wonderful birthday card a couple of years ago:
Or I could just throw a humungous party. But that’s a lot of disruption for you all. Oh dear, I didn’t have this problem yesterday.
