Miloh... it's TOO, not 'to'! And I did have purrage this morning, the Scottish way, with salt and not sugar. We've just celebrated in Scotland the birthday of arguably the world's greatest poet and he had some words for those on the brink of falling out. Burns said:' Then let us pray that come it may, (As come it will for a' that,) That Sense and Worth, o'er a' the earth, Shall bear the gree, an' a' that. For a' that, an' a' that, It's coming yet for a' that, That Man to Man, the world o'er, Shall brothers be for a' that.
And I look forward to buying you a beer there, in whichever currency! As I say, minor debates (never arguments) are only to pass the time while there is no 88e news to chew over. I genuinely think our time has come.
Islayman, I never had a problem accepting scottish notes in my (English) business, and neither did our bank. Since the BoE is the central bank for the BoS I don't really see what the problem is with people not accepting them, and I can understand you feeling disgruntled! But hey ho, hopefully success is just around the corner, and these petty squabbles will seem very minor when we are all living in the Bahamas! GL. TD.
Miloh...grow up son. The phrase 'legal tender' is a narrow, restrictive technical term only. Scottish notes are generally accepted by custom and practice. We often pay things with bank cards...are they legal tender? No. Cheques? No. But they are accepted. Technically, English bank notes are not legal tender in Scotland but are accepted. Just imagine if you went into a bar in Scotland, tried to pay with an English note, the bar tender holds it up to the light, squints at it then says he won't take it as '.they only take British notes'. That has happened to many Scots in England and it's patronising and insulting. It's the same with Northern Irish notes. I was in a pub in Warwick when the bar person refused to take a Scottish tenner. I asked for the manager, who also refused it. I then offered to pay in Euros, which he said they would accept . But we're not in the Euro! Let's not talk politics but it's this type of casual dismissal that makes many Scots want to leave the UK. I don't think we're ready for it yet and won't be for a while. But the garbage spewed out by the Daily Mail that English people pay for free bus passes at 60, free medical care and further education in Scotland is just that.. garbage. Scotland sends our taxes down to London and we get some of it back - not more - and we choose to spend it on social care. England spends it in a different fashion. That's all there is to it.
De la Rue (Basingstoke) had the license to print money, but when the BoE switched to plastic notes, they went to some European outfit - so English notes are not printed in England, I suspect Scottish notes are printed in the same place, as they all have to be recognised by auto-counting machines. I detest the plastic notes that will not flatten once creased, someone I know decided to use a steam iron to flatten a couple of twenties - not the sharpest tool in the box. She managed to scrape of a piece with a serial number and awaiting response from Barclays LOL.
And being a former BBC journalist, balance is important! However, it's now got to the ridiculous stage. If a weather presenter tells us it's raining, a BBC journalist will say ' However, I've just looked out the window and it isn't where I am'. Where will it all end? Anyway, spud won't be far away (although subject to logistical possibilities such as weather etc) and I hope it gives us all a lft.
True, it could start anywhere, but china tends to have the environment that leads to such outbreaks. SARS jumped to people from small wild mammals sold as a delicacy in what are known as wet markets, where live animals can be bought and butchered on the spot and many illegal transactions of wild animals take place. A far cry from the usual shopping experience at my local market. So yes can happen anywhere, but far more likely in these squalid conditions. Sorry but true. Anyway hope we all have a great 2020 with 88e hitting the big time!!
Sorry Devil not meant to offend (very hard not to offend somebody nowadays) just an observation from all the news reports. Where did the last outbreak, SARS if I remember, come from. Was it Guangong? Sounds Chinese to me.
LeMajor...at last a bit of humour on this board! I forgive you for the foul slur on my nation. In fact, we keep our coins for at least a year before spending them...mainly to buy our English pals beer. This board's tenor has been pretty grim recently and any attempt at humour is welcome. Also, a plea to 88e-ers….there are many decent posts on here too but the lack in some cases of proper spelling, grammar and punctuation make them difficult to read. Some take three or four times before the message gets through so please can we make them intelligible before posting? Otherwise informative material goes unrecognised. And before anyone starts bleating about the grammar police...the only people who make that complaint are folk who don't have the basics. Folk whose own language is not English I can understand - but most of us here have been reading and writing since we were five! This is not a serious rant, only a request! :) Let's hope good times are just round the corner for us all and roll on results in Spring.
