Review:

Do you find that 5 notes are hard to come by? Was gratified to learn this was an actual problem 
when reading the BBC webite. I was especially pleased to discover that cashpoints will be stocked 
with them, a feature that I have missed since the early 90s. Although there was a brief interlude at 
Sussex University, which did just that. I understand that 5 are not resilient enough, and more popular 
than the higher denominational notes, which accounts for their decreased lifespan. The Bank of 
England needs to make them of sterner stuff. Who knows, it may even help the economy?!
