What is meant by saying a thing is as “ safe as the Bank of England ” ?

The Bank of England is the custodian of the money belonging to the public funds of the nation and is manager
of the public debt. Its affairs are managed by great and prudent financiers and it has behind it a national
guarantee, so that it is as certain as anything human can be that the Bank of England will meet all its liabilities
and fulfill all its obligations.
