Vegans and vegetarians have voiced outrage after it emerged the new £5 notes contain tallow, a substance made from animal fat that is often used in the making of soap and candles.

"The Bank of England says its supplier is working on "potential solutions" to the issue of animal fat in its new £5 notes."


"That’s why it is crushing to know that the Bank of England has misled us into carrying around animal fat in our (leather-free) wallets and purses."

Got the Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Vegans distressed, put some pork into, should be offensive to Muslims too.

What do you think? :roll:


Did history teach us nowt about owt? :bang:

Sepoys, Enfield P-53 rifle, pre-greased paper cartridges.

Indian Mutiny all over again.

Send the ayah home, load the service pistols but save one bullet for the memsahib, say what. :guns:

    All of these idiots stick their heads in the sand when it comes to the animal toll of their vegan diets. Any farmer can tell you about the carnage that can be found after harvesting a field of any crop. That combine chews up fawns and bunnies just as well as it chews up corn stalks.

    Yep, and a silage chopper really does a job on the wildlife! Look at a freshly cut cornfield that has gone into the silage wagon- - - - -it's a buzzard smorgasbord!

    Just use plastic for money notes instead of paper.........................Oh, wait, plastic is made from the dead and decayed bodies of dinosaurs. Well, that's a non starter! :tooth:

    Just tell those idiots not to take the expression "put your money where your mouth is" too literally and call it a day.

    Have you ever seen a Vegan or a Vegetarian that was NOT upset about something?

    Had to quote myself because I just had a bout of brain flatulence. There's all kinds of plastic used EVERYWHERE FOR DARNED NEAR EVERYTHING! And it's at least partially from dead animals (dinosaurs) and their fat is part of the oil. How do them folks have a fit over a little animal fat in the money when they handling all that animal fat from dead dinosaurs? Fat is fat, dang it! Hypocrites! I call shenanigans and feigned outrage! They straining at gnats and swallowing the proverbial camel, skin, guts, and bunghole! :tooth: :roll2:

    Nobody seems to be speaking for all the plants those vegans are killing, and they're every bit as alive as the fluffy bunnies. I bet if you bred a soybean plant with big, sad, brown eyes, they'd have a total meltdown.

    You'd be ill tempered too, if you were hungry all the time.

    They're just not themselves... give 'em a Snickers! :roll2:

    Being hungry all the time is the least of it. Eating all that fibrous vegetable matter makes the bacteria in your digestive system put on their party hats and have a fiesta......................................producing mass quantities of methane, hydrogen sulfide, and other sweet smelling gases that HAVE to exit the brown starfish. They're all pissed off all the time, too, because they are forever playing the butt bugle! :roll2:
