Money Wisdom #165

"Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves. For all of my childhood those pennies jangled in my pockets, every one of them starring Britannia. Kings may come and queens may go but Britannia was always there, the constant. She was the Mother to us all. That was until decimalisation in 1971 and then she was gone from our coppers. Ever since, Britain and being British has been on the retreat."

Bill Drummond For Sale - $20,000 (2010) p. 107
