When the balloon goes up

Gordon Brown's Cobra-style economic committee meets for the first time today. The National Economic Council is part of the Prime Minister's "war footing" stance to tackle growing woes in the world markets.

The Treasury has drawn up detailed plans for the scheme, which would put taxpayers' money at risk.

When the balloon goes up is a phrase used to imply impending trouble. This relates to the use of observation balloons in the first World War. The sight of such a balloon going up nearly always resulted in a barrage of shells following soon after.

Time to shove what you have under the mattress.
