Sir:So the Government has found pounds 40bn, Tony Blair writes on your leader page (20 November). How fortunate, and just before Christmas too.

I wonder where it was found? If it is not too far away it might be worth the bus fare to go and see if an odd thousand or two has been overlooked; it is easily done in the excitement of the moment. If I do go I had better remember to take a plastic bag or something.

I wonder what pounds 40,000,000,000.00 looks like, in one lump so to speak; a bit surprising that nobody else noticed it. Just as well really, it might have fallen into wrong hands. Of course if anybody else had found it they should really have taken it to a police station I suppose, after all somebody must have lost it.
