Piling on the pounds


Sir, – I enjoyed Conor Pope’s article “Crappy new year: 16 ways to survive skint January” (Life, January 7th).

On closer inspection of one of the photographs accompanying the article I noted, with some surprise, that the coin being placed into the purse was a pound sterling coin, with image of Queen Elizabeth clearly visible. Could this possibly be indicative of an overload of Brexit or just changing times? – Yours, etc,
