50p! You can tell these are austere times. At least the revolting free money grab from Oakmayne Properties on Walworth Rd to advertise their South Central flats was made up of 300 fivers. It's the times, eh?
How times have changed indeed.
One day back in, (I think,) the late 1970's, a guy stood on Tower Hill offering five pound notes to passers by, most of whom declined and walked briskly past him as if he had the plague.
Does anyone else remember this?
