Have your say

CHANCELLOR George Osborne made me smile yesterday when he described how proud he was that the new £1 coin represented, in one design, all four parts of a strong United Kingdom.

Better get one while you can, George, because within ten years (maybe sooner) I doubt there will be a United Kingdom, and examples of last-ditch symbolism, such as the new pound coin, will be commanding silly prices on eBay.
