At the top of the image a pound currency sign (£) is pictured next to the Earth. In the next part of the image the top of the pound sign has become a spike and punctured the Earth. In the final part of the image, the pound sign has grown in size and sucked everything from the Earth, which is now pictured deflated and spent.

    1. They could start by banning all these “new” mobile phones that seem to be coming out every couple of months. When I ask all the sheeple I know why they get them, their only answer is “because it’s new”. My Nokia Lumia served me perfectly well for over ten years until it died one day. Replaced it with one exactly the same because as we say in Yorkshire, “it’ll do.”
