15,000 signatures think that tallow should be taken out of the GB fiver. Tallow being animal fat hated by vegans, hindus etc etc. It might not even be dacent honest irish tallow. PC gone mad?

Tallow is needed to help flex that fiver. Easier to fold and slip into a barmaid's bra, see? But if she's vegan, would that amount to assault?

I hope it's halal tallow or we'll have members of a certain minority declaring jihad on currency.

Why is it nonsense?

Whether one agrees with veganism or not it's an entirely valid viewpoint and they have as much right to raise issues as much as anyone else.

Phew....imagine if they didn't have the notes! They would only have, what, maybe 25 other reasons to tell us.....

We should just ignore all the people complaining about this. It is not an important issue. Too much time is spent on dumb stuff.

You don't really know what paranoia means do you? Paranoia is a delusion of persecution (you know, like you go on about) - I don't feel the least bit persecuted by any of the many personalities operating the hitchcock account, in fact I enjoy mocking you. :lol:
