    seriously - 40 million isn't that much these days - you may own the plane, but you wouldn't be able to afford to run it
    I know , I wouldn't even be able to buy the pile of trash that is the Millenium Dome, would I ?

    Die Hard with Avengence.
    no it's not that one. It's the one where all police officers were directed to some fake bomb while those German guys were stealing the gold (not money - sorry)

    I'd rather have £40 million :p: .

    Why don't we just do it properly and steal Barbados, or Hawaii, or Monaco. That I could go for . A country is worth so much more than the wealth it contains. Can I be king?

    Yes - Die Hard with Avengence. The fake bomb was in a school, but it turned out to be cherry soda, so there was no bomb in the school, but since there are no schools in wall street all the policemen fecked off elsewhere, they nicked the gold, put it in dumper trucks, put it on a boat, there was a huge bomb on the boat, blew it up, but they had switched the gold and it was in a warehouse.

    true - but when the country contains so much wealth as surplus, and such an ability to piss other countries off, its perfect.

    and, no - *****, i'm king

    They'll probably spread it about a bit. No point in keeping all the loot in the same place. Easier to find that way.
    I'm afraid that if you wanna find it you'll probably have to visit quite a few places.

    Lol, good on 'em. A victimless crime. I imagine anyone with a bit of 'James Bond' in them kinda wishes they were in the crew that pulled that off!

    A quote on the BBC website sums it up nicely. A highly organised organisation stealing millions they didn't earn that will probably never be seen again - the thieves or the governement? :-)

    They've got all the time in the world to launder it. Unlike the Irish raid, it's not like they're going to withdraw all the banknotes in the UK! A million and one ways to do it too - though it is an absolute assload of money to clean.

    It certainly is. I actually probably wouldn't want to be a part of it. There's too much hassle in the laundering process.
    Funny if they got the wrong idea and got a massive washing machine to launder it. I'd p*ss my pants at such a story. lol

    You don't consider where this money might go then?

    You naively believe these people are gentlemen theives who commit a one off robbery and retire to Lake Garda. This money will only pay for further criminal activity, whether that by buying weapons or funding the drug trade or even terrorism.

    There is no such thing as a harmless crime, especially when a gang of obvious professionals make off with £25m.

    I've just found a new film which may have been copied by those thieves
    Plot Summary for "Firewall" (2006)
    'A security specialist is forced into robbing the bank that he's protecting, as a bid to pay off his family's ransom. With his family held for ransom, the head security executive for a global bank is commanded to loot his own business for millions in order to ensure his wife and children's safety. He then faces the demanding task of thwarting the kidnapper's grand scheme, which makes him look guilty of embezzlement.'
