Gordon Brown has announced plans for a £16bn sell-off - just enough to pay August's loan.
Now aside the rights and wrongs of an asset sale, the one thing I noticed is that he wants to sell off the 33% stake in Urenco.
Urenco supplies equipement to enrich uranium for the nuclear industry, y'know the industry that everyone is turning to as fears about oil and gas dependency rises. An industry that will be growing - shadows of the gold sell-off anyone?
Still he's insisted that there will be "no threat to national security".
That's alright then
