Thinking Paper #187 - Breaking news: Counterfeiters thank Metro for supporting trade‏

By Ron Ford Golightly


The Bank of England has introduced a new-style £50 banknote into circulation for the first time in 17 years. Well done Merv. The note will feature the renowned 18th century business partnership of entrepreneur Matthew Boulton and engineer James Watt (what?) in an attempt to encourage those lazy British lot to start designing toilets with self lowering toilet seats and such like.

What does this mean for Mrs Miggins?

Well, a range of new and enhanced security features have been incorporated into the design of the Boulton and Watt £50 banknote so that old Miggins can't go around fraudulently printing fakes and giving them to her mates. Naughty Miggins, get in your box.

There is a but...

Full details of these new security features have been revealed by our beloved British media over the course of the day.

One counterfeiter told the IIPBA "I usually hate reading the Metro but I did today and I was really pleased to see that its article about the new £50 note set out all of the new security features and flaws for me to get around - thank you Mr Metro".

The counterfeiter wished to remain anonymous, but added "I'm gonna get well mashed up tonight. Mrs Counterfeiter's going to get a right slap up meal down the local curry house that's for sure".
