My boy, who is 7, asked,
"Did that man just say he was going to print some money?"
"Yes..I think he did."
"Wow ..that is an awesome idea.."
And he set himself to work, following the best advice of the financial experts of the BOE.
"This is Queen Elisabeth the 2. She owns all the money in the country"
"Great ..Who's that on the back?"
"That's Charles Darwin. He invented the turtle. And he's Santa's dad. Because he went to Christmas island. And you can tell because they have the same beard."
"I see .. And can we use this Killien pounds in the shops? To buy lots of things?"
"No..that would be a crazy idea. "
I hope you're taking note, Mr Carney.
Also ... I don't think I ever got my £10 back.
