    Stuff is costing more and more money due to inflation.

    £5 in 2016 is worth half as less as what it was in 1990.

    £20 notes are too small, and £50 notes are rare

    I think we should get rid of £5 notes and create a £5 coin.

    And create a £100 note

    £50 should become the new £20 note

    Generally, we don't pay for anything super expensive with large amounts of cash. Everything is done though cards and online payments, and I've never paid for anything over around £50 with cash.

    You said '£50 notes are rare' - why do you think that is?

    Switzerland have a 1000 franc note worth over £600

    There is the Euro 500 note worth £400

    And Jersey - a tiny island - have a £100 note

    And yet, we are afraid of using £50 notes?

    It's your fault if you're just using the chump change

    Yeah, so it's easier to get mugged trying to buy a shirt from Topman.

    £50 notes are rare because nobody carries enough or is stupid enough to carry them around in their wallets.

    This is why we have credit and debit cards.

    Jersey may have a £100 note but I challenge you to find a dozen normal people there who use them on a daily basis.

    They're not in circulation

    They're locked in the Bank of England vault

    I'm talking about money we use everyday

    They are talking about withdrawal of the large denomination notes in pretty much every western culture due to something like 95% being used in organised crime

    Afaik Scotland still has a £100 note?

    As soon as you have a low number of high value notes, forgery becomes an issue due to people not knowing what a genuine one looks like. I like cash, but don't agree about high value notes are needed

    A low number of high value notes would decrease forgery as people are less inclined to accept that without fully checking them first

    If there are lots of high value notes in circulation, people will just accept them - like they do with low value notes.

    Because our currency does not reflect the prices of our economy

    notes are too low face value and we need more and more of them to pay for simple things

    So I think we should accept inflation and update the value of our notes before things really do get out of hand

    Soon we will need bucket full of cash just to pay for a loaf of bread
