Subject: RE: Obit: George Best (November 2005)
George Best is to be immortalised on one million commemorative £5 bank notes.

The Ulster Bank is to issue the limited edition notes as a tribute to the footballer next month to mark the first anniversary of his death.

They will show Best in both his Northern Ireland and Man Utd strips.

This stomach churning act is a slap on the face to those families who donated organs of loved ones. George Best received warning after warning about his drinking. Despite this, he was given another chance with a transplant. There were many worthy cases out there who could of got this liver and didn't. He wasted the chance that few ever get and now he is being honoured on a bank note.

An act of shame.
