"The new £50 note will feature a prominent British scientist, the Bank of England has announced, with the public being asked for nominations. "

At the risk of being burned as a witch by the political correctness police, I rather suspect that it will [have to] be a woman.
Which is fine by me.

Cheers,

Just from the top of my head, I'm assuming it's going to be Stephen Hawking who will end up on the note.

No, he's not a woman. But honestly, he's done much more to the overall knowledge of mankind in my opinion than Clive Sinclair has.

One problem.

The scientist must be dead. They must have ceased to be. No more. They must be an ex-scientist.
