I used to be a vegan. But I got tired of being surrounded by smarmy self-righteousness. ;-)

Animal fat to stay in future banknotes, Bank of England concludes

Banknotes will continue to contain traces of animal products despite objections over the use of tallow in the Bank of England's polymer notes.

"Some vegans, Hindus and Sikhs had been unhappy with tallow's use in the new plastic £5 notes which entered circulation in September.

Future production of the polymer £5 notes and £10 notes, plus the £20 to be launched in 2020 will be unchanged.

The Bank said its "has not taken this decision lightly".

"The Bank fully recognises the concerns raised by members of the public, both prior to and during the consultation," it said."

Yes, but vegetarians and various other groups, including Hindus, had raised a bit of a fuss about it and we're trying to get the Bank of England to eliminate the substance from their money. Looks like they were unsuccessful. ;-)

Are the vegans and hindus eating these British bills? Coz if that's the case, the animal tallow is the least of their problems. The various polymers, dyes and fibers used in the manufacture of them bill should be.
