Remove 1p and 2p coins?

1p and 2p coins are pretty much useless and should be removed, like they removed 0.5p coins ages ago.
Comments?

Why? One of them here is called "Poundland". They must save a lot of staff time not having to hand out 1p coins.

Surely you didn't fail to understand my simple point? You said 99p shop= s would go out of business. My point (for the mentally challenged) was = that all they have to do is start charging =A31 and rename the sign.

Then they wouldn't be 99p shops.
And 99pland can't just change it's name to Poundland because it would then be confusing.

Not with proper cash rounding, as used in many parts of the world.

But they do. That's why 99p stores are not pound stores, and why they are commercially successful and survive.
Why should they be forced to change their name? How would you like to be forced to be known in future as Duffboy?
Nothing at all. Since 1992, 'copper' coins have been made largely of steel, which the Chinese are currently dumping at below cost.

Why should they be punished for that? So do Poundland.
Look it up.
Would they?
You're really scraping the barrel now, aren't you?

It's hardly a punishment renaming your shop. Thinking ahead, inflation will one day require them to charge more and change their name anyway.
You mentioned it, you provide the link.
No of course not, people like carrying things for no reason.
No, that's the most important reason.

It turns out a Chinese food deliveryman who was thought to be missing, was actually stuck in a Manhattan apartment building elevator for 4 days. 
The man is ok, but the building's owner is charging him $1,500 rent.

So that's why I wanted an explanation, as the link doesn't make your point at all. Say we were having a discussion on religion and I posted a link to a huge list of all religions and what they were, that wouldn't reveal anything whatsoever about my viewpoint.
