looks fancy. Think the Australians have had these for a while. I guess when the queen passes away, we'll have to change it all over again too

I like them, they feel very clean and strong in comparison to the our current notes

Very pretty, I like the colour scheme. I suppose they'll also be less likely to break or tear?

Hmm surely we should be trying to use less polymer though? what are they going to do with them all after 5 years as they aren't going to degrade unless they use biopol..
just a casual observation

Maybe. The Australians already have em, and I think they can still rip unfortunately

Tbh it would make sense, especially as the current monarch probably won't live for all that longer, so if they've all degraded in about 30 years, what does it really matter - unless of course the queen reaches 120!

As I understand, their durability is one of the reasons for the change. That and apparently it's much harder to forge them. I heard somewhere that the average fiver lasts only a few months in circulation before it's too damaged to use but the polymer notes should last a few years.

Personally I like the new design, too.

I think you may have misunderstood I want them to degrade hence the ideal usage of biopol however I doubt the government would mix cornstarch with the polymer just because it would probably complicate suppliers for such a large printing process. So it is good if they degrade after their useage however they won't if they are made solely from crude oil.
And hopefully the Queen won't live that long but that is a totally different issue
