    10 shilling notes would be an acceptable price to pay for combustable material. But yeah the notes in the video don't look like euros. Perhaps francs? If we wanted to do something like that then it would probably be best to get some funny money printed that looks real from a distance.

    I think at least one of the notes he burned was a green 100 Euro one (worth less than £9). There are also 50, 20, 10 and 5 Euro notes. As the 5 Euro note is only worth about 35p, he could easily afford that. So we could but then it's probably better to leave burning Euro notes to UKIP.Incidentally, the reason he was doing this was to publicise the fact thst various local radio and TV stations had not invited him to participate in debates between candidates they had organised, a problem we have come across too. Mind you, in this particular case there were 21 candidates.

    I think you should check your figures Adam. A single Euro is worth just less tha 90 pence. So 100 euros would be just less than £90 not £9.  : ) Steve.

    You're right Steve. And I used to live in Euroland and got paid in euros. So, also, a 5 Euro note is worth £3.50 not 35p, not the sort of thing to burn.

    Indeed not Adam. I,m not rich enough to burn even an old 10 peseta note, or is that "potato"? Steve.
