Petition For a Woman on the Fiver: Vote Maggie!

As we go to pixel, 14,320 people have signed the petition to the Bank of England to keep a woman on English banknotes. The signatories argue that, other than the Queen, it is important we have another woman represented:

“not only have numerous women emerged as leading figures in their fields, they have done so against the historic odds stacked against them which denied women a public voice and relegated them to the private sphere – making their emergence into public life all the more impressive and worthy of celebration.”

Always one to back the feminist cause, Guido agrees. Their suggestions of Mary Wollstonecraft or Mary Seacole are admirable, but Guido has a much better idea:

The first female party leader, first female First Lord of the Treasury, first female Prime Minister and first female to be awarded full membership of the Carlton Club.  Sign here for Maggie

    Surely she should be on the £20 note in honour of those kindly policemen who waved them at striking miners? Would also act as a greater disincentive to use “Maggies” as toilet paper.

    We could have you on the back of the Fiver then Polly. But, of course, you would have to be dead first.

    Started to sign it but stopped when I saw I was recommending Seacole.
    Maggie does not figure in the Letter – If it did I would vote.

    And when they’d accrued enough they spent them on new Scargills (or cars as they are more conventionally known).

    Surely Thatcher’s visage on banknotes would devalue our currency.

    This is an awesome idea. It may be exactly what we need to prompt Liverpool into voting for independance, a la Scotland.

    What about an issue of two £5 notes simultaneously.

    The Blessed Margaret for the right.

    Jimmy Savile for the left.

    Problem with the £50.00 note which would have been my preference is that it is red. So a £20.00 it has to be. A fiver is far too nigardly.

    Might as well reissue the £5 currency unit as a coin, considering it’s worth piss all

    Thrifty!

    Remember that ironing board at Downing Street that she insisted on paying out of her own pocket for.

    Should they be closed under the trade’s descriptions act?

    I say yes for the sole reason that it will drive lefties mad.

    They’ve got no right to complain, very few of them actually earn the money they receive anyway – it’s all welfare of various flavours, either directly or in payment for some bullshit public sector wank.

    Over heard : Only Chavs use £5 notes to do coke, people with class use a £50.

    Nothing do with this thread to be honest tho……

    On Topic : What effect will this have on the levels of poverty in Liverpool, after all they have a habit of burning anything with a picture of Baroness Thatcher on? ;)

    I’m in favour of putting a picture of Thatcher (in her coffin) on any banknote.

    Good idea Guido. Do you want Maggie appearing topless on your fiver? It would fit in with your warped views of feminism.

    I find it absolutely sickening and abhorrent. I think the vast majority of British people will find this shocking – Polly literally shitting herself with rage is not funny at all, it’s dreadful and I can’t believe she’s done that.

    More fool her for doing so, Cat, is the way people think today.
    Mind, they would smite her mightily about the head and shoulders for being an expenses grubber, but at least they’d have the confidence in her that she knew what the game was and had elected to play it, instead of engaging in non-participation– how can you trust someone if they won’t play the game!

    What concerns me is what I can actually buy with my Bank Notes or indeed whether I am allowed to get my hands on my Bank Notes.

    David Cameron: “”If you take Jo Johnson – someone who’s got an immense brain, an immense talent, a very successful journalist at the Financial Times, wrote some excellent books before going into politics….”

    so he’s never had a proper job either

    David Cameron, running scared, shitting his pants and desperate to stay in power – a typical out of touch, etonian twat

    I just opened up the page and there was that..that..wicked image of a British dictator ,slave holder, anti-Liberal,Apartheid supporting non-woman staring at me.

    I never set out to drop one into my frillys just for comic effect.

Of course it could be much worse,look at Spain and Italy for instance.On the other hand Canada,Australia and New Zealand seem to do rather well without Etonians

    Choosing the £5 for this campaign seems rather silly, as it’s already being changed to Churchill.

    The £10 is a no-no, because fuck you if you think Thatcher is more important than Darwin.

    The £20 already has Adam Smith who you like so much, and the £50 is rather too socialist in its redness.

    So clearly the solution is to introduce a new £100, it’s both aspirational and impractical enough to honour the dear departed Iron Lady.

    Mary Seacole complained about being discriminated against because she was a woman — which she was, as you would expect from mid-19th century medics. But she never complained about being discriminated against because she was black (Abbott, are you reading this?).

    Florence Nightingale, who has already been on a banknote, took to her bed when she returned from the Crimea and never got up again, although she had no discernible illness. Mary Seacole remained functional. Perhaps this makes her more deserving of a banknote than Flo.

    Anyway, my favourite banknote is the old Canadian 10 dollar bill with a loon on it. The loon has now been devalued and appears on the 1 dollar coin. (For Guido’s well informed readers, I hardly need to add that this bird is what in Britain is called a Great Northern Diver.)

    William Roache charged with two r apes of a 15 year-old-girl

    The Crown Prosecution Service has today authorised Lancashire Police to charge William Roache with two ra pes allegedly committed against a 15-year-old girl in 1967.

    Nazir Afzal, Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS North West, said:

    “We have carefully considered all the evidence gathered by Lancashire Police in relation to William Roache following allegations of ra pe. We have been reviewing evidence and providing early investigative advice to Lancashire Police since 1 March 2013.

    “Having completed our review, we have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest for Mr Roache to be charged with two offences of ra pe relating to a girl, aged 15, in 1967. Mr Roache will appear at Preston Magistrates’ Court on 14 May 2013.

    “This decision was taken in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors and our guidance for prosecutors on se xual offences.

    “Mr Roache has a right to a fair trial and it is therefore very important that nothing is said, or reported, which could prejudice that trial. For these reasons, it would be inappropriate for me to comment further.”

And as orders are orders I did so, and gave her a good tit massage as well – better not go further what happened, but I suppose you can guess the rest.

    Funny, that the country’s drowning in debt
    Yet the instigators, they don’t get wet
    No LibLabCon men down on their uppers
    Denying themselves their champagne suppers
    Could it be that they’re really not inept
    But, at brass tacks level, very adept
    At self-enrichment while Britain goes down?
    You might take a good look at London town
    Enriched so far that the old English folk
    May no longer be enjoying the joke
    And beginning to wonder, as you will
    Who’s truly paying our Parliament’s bill

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/queen-elizabeth-II/10030615/Abdicate-Queen-Elizabeth-is-too-selfless-to-go-Dutch.html

    shouldn’t this be selfish????

    From the book – Who Owns The World

    “Queen Elizabeth II the largest landowner on Earth.”

    Queen Elizabeth II, head of state of the United Kingdom and of 31 other states and territories, is the legal owner of about 6,600 million acres of land, one sixth of the earth’s non ocean surface.

    She is the only person on earth who owns whole countries, and who owns countries that are not her own domestic territory. This land ownership is separate from her role as head of state and is different from other monarchies where no such claim is made – Norway, Belgium, Denmark etc.

    The value of her land holding. £17,600,000,000,000 (approx).

    This makes her the richest individual on earth. However, there is no way easily to value her real estate. There is no current market in the land of entire countries. At a rough estimate of $5,000 an acre, and based on the sale of Alaska to the USA by the Tsar, and of Louisiana to the USA by France, the Queen’s land holding is worth a notional $33,000,000,000,000 (Thirty three trillion dollars or about £17,600,000,000,000). Her holding is based on the laws of the countries she owns and her land title is valid in all the countries she owns. Her main holdings are Canada, the 2nd largest country on earth, with 2,467 million acres, Australia, the 7th largest country on earth with 1,900 million acres, the Papua New Guinea with114 million acres, New Zealand with 66 million acres and the UK with 60 million acres.

    She is the world’s largest landowner by a significant margin. The next largest landowner is the Russian state, with an overall ownership of 4,219 million acres, and a direct ownership comparable with the Queen’s land holding of 2,447 million acres. The 3rd largest landowner is the Chinese state, which claims all of Chinese land, about 2,365 million acres. The 4th largest landowner on earth is the Federal Government of the United States, which owns about one third of the land of the USA, 760 million acres. The fifth largest landowner on earth is the King of Saudi Arabia with 553 million acres”

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/eu/10032073/David-Cameron-to-take-on-the-Ukip-fruitcakes-with-EU-referendum.html

    So there he goes again, promising a referendum that he can’t possibly deliver because he won’t be in a position to do so, even if he wanted to.

    The Bottom Line says:

    The cons have a much stronger chance than UKIP of gaining a majority. That’s why kippers get engage in demagogery and character assassinations. The jibes from Tories are tame in comparison. UKIP have practically nothing else in their toolkit. Still a pressure group at heart.

    Ukip-ers are playing the game of “Chicken” with Cameron trying to force him more and more to the right on europe and referendum. Who’ll blink first ? At moment it looks like Cameron. Vote Ukip in the European Elections but be under no illusions UKip haven’t a cat in hell’s chance of getting one MP at Westminster let alone a government….if you vote UKip in 2015 you get a Labour Government…it’s as simple as that

    @Expat Geordie

    Maida Vale was only indirectly named after a victory against the forces of Napoleon as it took it’s name from that of a prominent pub named after John Stuart, the British Lieutenant-General.

    It always sounds to me like a feeble attempt at a pun.

    Off topic unusually, does anybody have a lock of Maggie’s hair ? I have previously noted that there is somebody who has made a collection of the hair of influential people in history. There was a lock sold recently, I forget who, Such a DNA collection will be worth a small fortune.

    Don’t forget the Scotland situation,Isn’t their referendum before that election. If they go ‘independant the whole thing goes into a very interesting melting pot. No chance of a Labour majority in England, Ukip could benefit in areas where there would be a lot of disillusioned Labour voters with nowhere to go, bearing in mind Ukip are picking up former labour votes at the moment.Personally, I don’t think the Scots will vote to leave the UK, but the next few years will be interesting and tomorrows local election results will be an indicator of the country’s feeling, although I realize that many people will use the chance for a protest vote, without the ‘danger’ of actually changing anything.
