Bristol Pounds


Did you know about Bristol Pounds?

I didn’t until I read Dave Trott’s blog about them.  Here it is.

It’s a new currency.  A what goes on in Bristol stays in Bristol currency.

And the new Mayor of Bristol is paying himself in his own currency.

(Clearly he has no travel plans.)

It’s sort of daft having a currency you can only spend in your own back yard: quaint really.

Niaive?  You could argue that it is.

But you know what?  It’s brilliant too.  It’s outrageously ‘outside of the box’.

Someone thought hard about that and I doff my titfer to them.
