Margaret Thatcher and other scientists nominated for face of £50

The Bank of England has released a list of scientists who have been nominated to feature on the new £50 note, which includes former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
Mrs Thatcher is joined on the list by computing pioneers Alan Turing and Ada Lovelace, and telephone inventor Alexander Graham Bell.
Bank of England Governor Mark Carney announced earlier this year that the new polymer note will celebrate British contribution to science.
The Conservative leader studied Chemistry at Oxford University before working as a research scientist for food company J Lyons and this makes Mrs Thatcher eligible for a place on the list.
The former Prime Minister’s nomination has had a strong response on twitter with some people delighted, whilst others were angry at the suggestion.
