    It would make a certain sense.

    The left are demanding an end to austerity which effectively means spending money we don't have by printing more money. So the government could do the fashionable thing, but as the socialists would refuse to handle the new 50 notes then inflation would be kept under control.

    Quite right too, it was never needed, it was just an excuse to put the boot into the poor and vulnerable. (Also it has cost more than it has saved.)

    well be honest, it is the 50 note we are talking about. Who other than her fan club has ever seen one ...

    (ok fess up time yes I used to draw the payroll in cash and pay it in cash and these notes were in some of those pay packets)

    "The Inland Revenue is not slow, and quite rightly, to take every advantage which is open to it under the Taxing Statutes for the purposes of depleting the taxpayer's pocket. And the taxpayer is in like manner entitled to be astute to prevent, so far as he honestly can, the depletion of his means by the Inland Revenue"
