Re: Is there a petition to insist that we DON'T change the new £5 note?

I did start one yesterday because this whole thing is a farce. Although I feel that petitions themselves are pretty rubbish tools - so, a petition has 150,000 signatures. There are 64 million people in the UK. What do the other 99.8% of the population think? A petition tells you nothing because you don't know a) how many people have seen it, and b) how many of those people oppose it or how many don't care. Of course a petition with 32 million (genuine) signatures might be a different matter.

Anyway, here it is: https://www.change.org/p/bank-of-england-keep-using-tallow-to-produce-polymer-bank-notes
