Thank God might makes right ! or we’d all be dead … can’t eat silver … and bacteria can’t even grow on silver … and there was nothing in the orginal contract stating it had to be spread equally around the world ta’ keep the earth from tilting on it’s axis … and
IF the DELINQUENT PROCRASTINATING PIRATES just dumped it all on Italy and the Mediterranean … via first class overnight delivery …
they’d be guilty of genocide … and makin’ the earth wobble … and … and … and … ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO BE PAID BACK IN SILVER MR. RICCAIRDI … HELLO …
IMAGINE THAT … TRY TA’ PAY BACK YOUR DEBTS … AND THEY’RE BEGGIN’ YA’ NOT TO !
ROLL OVER RUMPLESTILTSKIN !

Based on these simplistic calculations The 1830 debt appears to be at least £ 224,484,454,175,461,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
More exciting still for the Italian economy should the UK Government – or our Queen – decide that this part of Edward III ‘s loan should be repaid in 2016 , using the same simple calculations the stratospheric repayment would be £43,750,656,753,571,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 – I don’t even know how to say this number let alone imagine how any country could repay such a debt!
