As you’ll know, i’m heading off to London tomorrow..
I’m just back from the bank having got a bit of sterling (£0.66 per €1 or £100 for €150).
The thing is i have about £150 sterling sitting in my wallet. But i can’t use it in England. Why? Because it’s Northern Irish sterling..
It’s a pain in the backside having to go in and get english only sterling.. it’s stupid.
Nothern Ireland is part of Britain, yet in effect they have a different currency (well perhaps not currency, but legal tender.)
I really can’t see the sense in it.. pride probably plays a huge role but it’s about time they introduced an all British pound that is accepted everywhere.
If one part of Britain won’t accept another part of Britaind’s pound, how the hell do people think they’ll join the euro
