Special waldo gloves for after Brexit going back to £ s d

  (+1)
(+1)
  [vote for,
against]

Well, assuming the vote goes against remaining in the EU, then no real reason not to go the whole hog and go back to £ s d. So back to with twelve pennies to the shilling and 20 shillings to the £, a perfectly simple system.

Admittedly it will take some time to get back into the pre- decimalisation mind-set, and so NMRM Co offer training waldo type training gloves for counting on your fingers, suitable to newbies and foreigners.

The gloves come with ten additional fingers, each of which can fan out to present 12 sub-fingers.

In this way it will be possible to count up to 240 without having to take off a shoe or something like that.

NB greatly disappointed that there seem to no anagrams for "whilst".

       The pre decimalisation mind-set is also a pre industrial mindset. Consider that the initial moves to decimalisation went as far as being brought to Parliament in 1824, with serious discussions on the matter long prior to that. In 1841 this shit got real, with the formation of the Decimal Association. Not only were we aligned to adopt decimal currency but also SI units, as far back as then. The first actual product of all this was our first decimal coin in 1849 — the florin (with ten of those to a quid).
