The £50 note is getting a revamp, and some people think Thatcher should be its new face:

Many people object. But should they? The £50 note is the denomination of choice for bankers, coke dealers, and wankers. As such, who better to feature on it than Margaret yuppie-loving Thatcher?
Unlike the £5, £10, and £20 notes (which are primarily used for purchasing things), the £50 tender is designed for:
- Pulling out in huge wads at local shops when buying milk so everyone knows you’re the sort of person who withdraws £50 notes in bulk at the bank.
- Snorting coke at boring parties and then shouting, “Who’s taken my fifty? Oh wait – here’s my fifty. I thought I’d lost my fifty, but my fifty is right here. I will now use my fifty to snort more cocaine”.
Thatcher would probably have disliked these people on a personal level, yet they’re exactly the sort of arseholes she helped to thrive. As such, there’s no more fitting tribute to her legacy than coked-up yuppies using her image to snort powderised twat-juice.
On the other hand, there’s also an argument for putting literally anyone else on it.
– Join The Canary, so we can keep holding the powerful to account.
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
