A mysterious organisation called Foundation X has offered the British Government £5billion and wants nothing in return, according to a Tory peer.
The old saying tells us that there’s no such thing as a free lunch and in these testing economic times, an offer of no-strings cash seems far too good to believe.
Yet Lord James of Blackheath told the House of Lords he had been in discussions with the group and had urged coalition ministers to take accept the multi-billion cash injection.
Though the alleged offer seems more suited to the type of advance-fee fraud found in the spam folders of email addresses across the globe, Lord James claims Foundation X is ‘completely genuine and sincere’.
