Definition: Fictional and unattainable currency

Vanishingly rare (possibly mythical) currency invented by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to pay Junior Doctors in England for their extra (but enforced) on-call work in lieu of real money.

Hunt famously let slip the existence of the near-fictional payments during a morning television interview where he appeared bewildered and unable to do even basic mathematics at 0715.

This lead to thousands of Junior Doctors attempting to supplement their soon-to-be-decimated salaries and lay claim to some of this so-called Danger Money. Their justifications took the form of a Twitter and Facebook campaign where claimants used the hashtag #dangermoney alongside a reason they felt they deserved some.

Economists estimate that if all the valid claims for Danger Money were paid out (even prospectively) the Treasury would be bankrupt before the week was out.
