Petition Started To Get Harry Maguire Unicorn Inflatable Picture On £50 Note
Harry Maguire is a national treasure and should be treated as such. So it's no surprise that one fan has started a petition to get him on the new £50 notes.
Remember the wonderful warm, sunny and magical days of summer. Not only did it seem like the UK had been transported into a different part of the world but the World Cup kept us in a state of almost constant euphoria.
Lunch hours were spent in the pub, days were spent watching at least one game of football a day, sometimes four, and nights were spent watching football in the pub.
To add to all the usual delights of a football tournament was the fact that England actually did well and reached the semi-final, even winning a damn penalty shoot out on the way.
The opposition may have never been the best but plenty of Three Lions sides wouldn't have gone as far and people had belief back and it was actually enjoyable to watch, yet horrible at the same time.
Harry Maguire was the hero we needed but maybe not the one we deserved. £50 notes in England are headed for a design in 2020 when the new polymer notes come in and Jonny Gabriel has started a petition to get ol Slabhead on the note:
We have now reached 1,000 signatures in our attempts to put Harry Maguire Riding An Inflatable Unicorn on the new £50 note. Please keep signing and sharing, we cannot risk a flippant suggestion like Margaret Thatcher appearing on our currency.https://t.co/3a78DO1OvS- Jonny Sharples (@JonnyGabriel) October 15, 2018
Gabriel wrote, "The Bank of England are redesigning the £50 following the successful redesign of the £5, £10, and £20 notes. None of these notes so far have featured a World Cup semi finalist floating on a mythical creature, and in the interests of football's attempts to come home, who would be more appropriate to feature than Harry Maguire riding an inflatable unicorn?"
Maguire and some of his teammates had a hilarious photo-shoot during the World Cup, after victory in the opening group game vs Tunisia, riding inflatable unicorns in a pool.
In the UK a petitions with 10,000 signatures gets a response from the government and at 100,000 signatures the government debate the matter in parliament.
At time of writing the petition for the Leicester City centre back to adorn the highest note in general circulation is at 9,318 so it's not long till there's at least a response.
You may think that Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish people would be against it but then if the alternative is Margaret Thatcher on the back of the notes they might be on board with Maguire.
Forget general elections, local elections and even Brexit, it's time to make a real difference to this country, vote Slabhead!
