How many pennies in 50p?

Shot with Olympus E620
Very quietly, a revolution has taken place in the City. It used to be the case that the City Public Lavatories were all free, clean and free, and I think that was something to be proud of. Not so any more. They have introduced charges to the busiest ones (=the ones they can get away with stiffing the tourists, around St Pauls and the Tower of London) and it is not clear if they will introduce them to the rest, such as this one in Smithfield. So now, it costs 50p to spend a penny. The expression comes from the old Public Lavatories that used to be coin operated, they cost 1d - old penny - or less than 0.5p now.

50p is a heck of a lot of money for having a piss. Pretty appalling.
