Below is a clip from RussiaToday discussing the latest move by the Chancellor George Osbourne, to introduce 100 year bonds to fund the UK’s massive debt problem. The only drawback with these bonds is because of low-interest rates and high inflation, nobody is willing going to invest in them.

As a result of the UK’s investment rules, Britain’s pension funds would be forced to invest in them thereby shafting future generations with very low returns. Suits the current government to push out the debt.
