More Government Incompetance

Well someone should be very embarrassed over this one. As some may have seen, in celebration of the London 2012 Olympic games, a series of 29 50p coins were released, one per sport.

Well the football (soccer) coin, of which about 500K are in circulation, feebly attempts to explain offside on one side of the coin ... and gets it wrong. Only by about 17 years or so though ... so it was close by government standards.

As you would imaging everyone at the Royal Mint is spinning and believes the coin is "provoking discussion", or is "true" in representing an offside position.

To which I say ... rubbish.

It is true that it is a collectors item however, and I am in the process of getting one for myself. Call me hypocritical.

You can see the full story (and image of the coin) here, from Guardian.
