Bark: Who wants to be a Trillionaire?

The exchange rate between Pounds Sterling and Zimbabwe Dollars is now running at nearly ONE TO FIVE HUNDRED MILLION. Inflation is well beyond what could be classed as "hyper" at 2,200,200%, and here we are in the UK worrying about the cost of living when the inflation rate is still less than 4%... Puts things in perspective a little, no?

We should be glad that our government is only mildly incompetent and not UTTERLY incompetent. Sure, we might be feeling the pinch a little now, what with the absolutely ludicrous price of fuel, but things could be a lot worse. Still, Brits wouldn't be Brits if they couldn't have a good whinge about things that aren't actually that serious...
