Brits say David’s on the money

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

Sir David At­ten­bor­ough is top of a list of “eth­i­cal cham­pi­ons” Bri­tons want to fea­ture on the new £20 note, a sur­vey has re­vealed.

The re­search, by YouGov on be­half of Good Money Week, showed that 40 per cent of the 2128 peo­ple polled said he was their first choice ahead of other eth­i­cally-minded f ig­ure­heads, in­clud­ing Richard Bran­son, Stella McCar tney and Jamie Oliver.

The vet­eran broad­caster out­stripped his clos­est ri­val, Prince Charles, who came in with just seven per cent of sup­port.

Harry Pot­ter nov­el­ist JK Rowl ing ea rned the ap­proval of four per cent of those asked.

Hu­man rights ac­tivist An i t a Rodd i ck a nd Arch­bishop of Can­ter­bury Justin Welby earned three per cent each.

Nearly a third (27 per cent) said they did not know who to choose.

The poll, con­ducted last month, asked par­tic­i­pants to name an in­di­vid­ual they most wanted to fea­ture on the new ban­knote from a list of 15 eth­i­cal cham­pi­ons who wou ld “re­mind the pub­lic to be eth­i­cal in how they spend thei r money”.

A new ver­sion of the £20 note is due to come into cir­cu­la­tion in 2020.

Good Money Week starts to­day and pro­motes mak­ing eth­i­cal money choices in daily spend­ing, the choice of bank , sav­ings, in­vest­ments and pen­sions.
