The Currency used in Britain. Pounds sterling. Made up pounds (£) and pence (p). There are 100 pennies to the pound. The actual currency (the coins and notes) go up in 1,2,5 up to £50 notes (apparently there are £100 notes but you never see them, and most shops wouldn't accept it cos they never see it so it could be faked). Most the money has a picture of the queen on, but you can also find darwin, adam smith, elgar etc.
1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, £2, (that's all the coins).
£5, £10, £20 (that's the notes).

Definitely not monopoly money, because it is worth twice the dollar!
I bought a bottle of vodka for £5!
Apparently if you draw on the queen on the note, it counts as treason.
The British Pound as we know it was introduced in 1971

The right to rule, having legitimate authority. Normally by winning a fair election.
Tony Blair shouldn't be allowed to do this shit, only half the country voted and only half of the voters voted for him. He has no mandate!
