Bank of England gets it right

#1 Post by Setters Forever » Thu May 02, 2013 2:04 pm

Bank of England Governor, Sir Mervyn King, announced today that Sir Winston Churchill next Bank of England banknote (portrait made in Ottawa by Yousuf Karsh on 30 December 1941) . The Governor made the announcement, and revealed the image of Churchill which will be used, to members of the Churchill family at Chartwell, Churchill’s former home.

Commenting on the choice, the Governor said: “Our banknotes acknowledge the life and work of great Britons. Sir Winston Churchill was a truly great British leader, orator and writer. Above that, he remains a hero of the entire free world. His energy, courage, eloquence, wit and public service are an inspiration to us all. I am proud to announce that he will appear on our next banknote.”

The plan is for the Churchill note to be issued as a £5 note, and that it shall be issued during 2016.

Me, apparently. Some of those side pics are less than flattering.
