10 Londoners Who Deserve To Be On The New Pound Coin

Apparently all our pound coins are fake, so we’ve got to get new ones. Lord George of Osbourne has cleverly devised some brand new unfakeable ones just for us. They’re going to have corners now. You can’t fake corners.

The Queen will of course feature on one side (God Save The Queen), but the other side is up for discussion. People have been asked to send in their suggestions, for Lord George’s careful consideration. So I’ve taken some time to pen a list of my 10 favourite nominees. George my dear, you are welcome.

 

Boris 

DELA WK31 boris zip line 4

The ideal Londoner. Champion of the world. Winner of best hairdo for seven years running. Our next Prime Minister. Boris MUST WIN THIS.

 

Prince William’s Dog 

Prince George

The animal kingdom has been somewhat overlooked in recent coinage. This needs to change. Ladies and gentleman I present… Lupo. The poshest (and most photogenic) dog there ever was.

 

Joey Essex

National Television Awards - Red Carpet Arrivals

A man so stupid that his rise to fame deserves official recognition. Really, it’s fantastic that a cotton wool brain wrapped in bright orange skin could achieve so much.

 

Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict

Crime solver extraordinaire, and wearer of the most illustrious coats. He knows who did it. Best keep him on side.

 

Lady Mary out of Downton

The perfect role model for one and all. Incredibly short arms. Pale face. Lovely dresses.

 

Harry Styles

0609harrystyles

Second best hair in this line-up. Basically the new Elvis. It’s about time we face facts, and put his sweaty little head on a coin.

 

Mo Farah

London Olympic Games - Day 15

When asked who should win Sports Personality of the Year, Mo said… “Me”. Boom.

 

London Elektricity 

London+Elektricity+LE

Marginally less famous than Mo Farah, yet clearly more dedicated to the cause. London Elektricity’s first name is London. He’s put some real effort in.

 

David Bowie

Bowie is very important now. The V&A know this, so they made him a whole exhibition that you had to buy tickets for but you couldn’t buy tickets because they were all sold out. The world loves Bowie. The world would love to spend Bowie money. Also his eyes are different colours. Bloody marvellous.

 

The Rib Man

Have you tried those ribs?

 

 

Who do you want on the coinage? Tell me, I promise to let my BFF Mr George know.

The Glorious Tube Strike of London Town

A tube strike is happening, people!! They said it wouldn’t, they thought it was just an empty threat – but guess what? IT’S REAL.

 

On this grisly Wednesday morning Londoners awoke to unimaginable scenes. The stations were enclosed in iron bars. Buses drove past, slowly, their windows filled with a mangled mess of limbs, spit and hair. A Boris bike trundled past, reluctantly ridden by a disgruntled suit.

 

And in the distance the delighted screeches of the trains could be heard, as they sat around in the depths of Zone 6 in their greying pants, hollering obscenities at this morning’s Jeremy Kyle show.
