Hogging the Cash

Naturally I'm delighted that they're at last going to put another Hampshire novelist on the £10 note. Austen is a worthy successor to Dickens, and although I don't begrudge Darwin his interregnum it's about time they brought it home to God's own county.

One useful feature of the Dickens note was that, if folded correctly so as to combine the top of his head with the bottom of the queen's, it produced a very passable imitation of the young John McEnroe.

10 pounds

I look forward to Jane Austen and Elizabeth Windsor making a lifelike Martina Navratilova.
