    My gas bill is negative £161.

    Would you write -£161 or £-161?
  2. I'd go for -£161. Off the top of my head I can't think of another unit that would go before the number. If it were -161€ I'd have no doubt at all.
  3. I'd speak to the gas company and change your payments. All that money of yours earning interest for them.
  4. Or get it back, keep the payments up and see it as a savings scheme
  5. Yeah! Just think of it!
    &pound;161 @ 0.5% per annum!
    You could buy ........... what with that?
