Gordon Brown's bounced cheque for sale

Gordon Brown bounced chequePrudence and an end to “Boom and Bust” was what Gordon Brown promised us when he was Chancellor of the Exchequer. Now as the Prime Minister who’s presided over the countries worst recession the press are taking great delight in a cheque he wrote well over a quarter of a century ago.

You have to feel a certain amount of sympathy for the PM. Whilst it’s hardly the crime of the century to bounce a cheque, for it to come back and haunt you 37 years later must be more than a little annoying.

The payment was for his student accommodation at Edinburgh university, and if you want this piece of political memorabilia the will now cost you over £2500 which is the current bid price.

    GB knew what he was doing.

    He was conducting a test as to see how long it would take before his mismanagement of money got found out.

    In 37 years time we are in for one hell of a surprise !
