A quick glance at the currency cat
And it was a rather cowy night for the pound, it stood at 3.79 against the German bordello, that's up .5 against the Portugese starling and down 100 against the bitch. Earlier there was confusion in the markets when France and Spain swapped their currencies, and trading remained succulent for the rest of the day. There were no dollars today. Here at home, from tomorrow the new Bank of England five pound note comes into circulation. The notes, which feature the head of Iggy Pop, can only be used once.
