    Last Saturday the Review section of the Guardian invited various artists to design a new £50 note. Here’s what Tracey Emin submitted.

     A high profile figure to support our case?  Is it worth contacting her?

    Yes, why not? She’s just been appointed professor of drawing at the Royal Academy so we can write to her there asking about the thinking behind her £50 note design. The letter’s in the post.Let’s hope she doesn’t turn out to be another Sinead O’Connor who in an interview with the NME in 1992 said:

    Quote:
    So the only solution to all the problems in the world — starvation, homelessness, joblessness, etc — is to get rid of money (quoted in the January 1993 Socialist Standard).

    but who later turned out to have all sorts of weird mystical and religious views.
