    More valuable than Gordon Brown's gold as an investment.

    Yes, the plebs get cheap wine and some Polish canapes, whereas Juncker and his cronies will be on the Latour and caviar (every week)

    Don't seem to be in vogue any more.

    Perhaps there aren't many barns left to hold them in? All being used as business office space or the farms have been bought by rich London yuppies to use as holistic healing retreats.
    When did you last have young farmers balls?

    Yes, we had those too along with ceilidhs. Straw bales for furniture was always the order of the day.
