    Yep. No doubling in the first week. The eventual difference being roughly what admin spent on hookers and blow in the last financial year.

    2p by the end of week 2
    4p by the end of week 3
    8p by the end of week 4
    16p by the end of week 5
    etc.

    Must be a challenge being the genetic result from yourself.

    Not quite it's: £22,517,998,136,852.48 as if we aren't playing around with x significant figures you may as well be completely accurate.


    And the total amount saved would be £45,035,996,273,704.95 which might be what people were trying to talk about.

    Not quite. The total amount saved at the end of week 52 would be 2^51 pence.

    About time the UK got it. Wages and prices to rise biggly. House prices to stay flat. It would sort out the housing crisis. And actually give older people something real to moan about instead of whining.
