Cash-strapped British people will breathe a sigh of relief when they see these impressive treasure troves.
Despite the financial crisis, it seems the country still has some money left in the Bank of England's vault beneath London.
In fact, there are stacks of gold bars worth a whopping £156billion stored in an old canteen deep below the streets of the capital.
UK gold holdings were 310.3 tonnes at the beginning of 2011. Looks like the DM has reported on gold reserves that are not the UK's but those stored for other agencies. Or, they made a mistake with an extra '0'.
Now, why can't we see a similar photo of OUR gold in our depositories here in the US???
Most important part of the story and it is barely mentioned.
Quote,,, "Three-foot long keys are needed to unlock to the doors that guard the rooms holding the gold - but sadly not all of it belongs to us."
How much of the gold shown is owned by England?
Well at least they're still turning a quid on storage fees. lol
Interesting that they found Gold bars just after Gadhafi's bars went missing
Not pointing fingers...Im jus sayin
