Northern Rockall

Alistair Darling has announced plans to bring Rockall into public ownership.

The northern Rockall bank came perilously close to collapse, necessitating Government action to prop it up in case the whole sector was undermined.

The Chancellor said that leaving Rockall to weather current conditions in the North Atlantic was not a good option due to the Climate Crunch.

He proposes to keep Rockall at arm’s length by moving it to central London until sea levels fall back sufficiently to allow it to return to the North Atlantic sector. Mr Darling predicted that significant cuts in carbon emissions would soon lead to a more stable climate.

The Tories condemned the move saying, "The Treasury should have gone with the Pirate sector bid from the Long John Silver consortium which would have brought a million Spanish doubloons to Rockall."
