Turn! Turn! Turn!
Yesterday, on 20/2/2020, a new £20- note was issued by the Bank of England and entered circulation in the UK.
The new design shows the British painter JMW Turner. And signs and portents. It is replacing the previous design which showed Adam Smith who according to Wiki was the Father of Economics or Father of Capitalism who wrote ‘The Wealth of Nations’ :
‘You’ll soon no longer find Adam Smith in your wallet or purse. The economist has been replaced as the face of the £20 note by artist JMW Turner.
The Bank of England said the new polymer £20 – which enters circulation on Thursday – is its most secure ever banknote.
It includes two see-through windows and a two colour foil to help beat forgers.
The Bank reckons half of all ATMs across the UK to be dispensing the new notes in just two weeks’ time.
The new £20 is the third plastic banknote to be issued by the Bank of England after the fiver featuring Winston Churchill – launched in 2016 – and the tenner featuring Jane Austen, which was first issued in 2017.
It replaces the paper one featuring Adam Smith which has been in circulation since 2007.’
And a familiar addition to the note with a Lighthouse which is an image of Margate Lighthouse where Turner used to paint.
Joseph Mallord William Turner – Wiki :
‘Joseph Mallord William Turner RA (23 April 1775 – 19 December 1851), known contemporarily as William Turner, was an English Romantic painter, printmaker and watercolourist. He is known for his expressive colourisations, imaginative landscapes and turbulent, often violent marine paintings.’
And Fast As Fuck in Korea.
From Metro. co. uk :
‘A religious sect in South Korea is at the centre of a coronavirus ‘super-spreading event’ which has seen dozens of people infected.
The new confirmed cases were recorded among members of the Shincheonji Church of Jesus, the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony.’
If I’ve got it, you’ve got it.
