A government running out of money is as likely as us running out of miles

Posted on

I had a conversation last evening during which I was reminded that the claim that a government with its own currency might run out money is as ridiculous as the suggestion from a road engineer that they might run out of miles. Or that football might run out of goals. Or cricket out of runs, come to that.

None of those things is possible.

We should laugh at all such suggestions.

Our Chancellor quite ludicrously suggests one might be true.
