Scottish notes are not in fact legal tender even in Scotland but its a very stupid business that
would refuse to take them. Only notes issued by the Bank of England are legal tender in the
UK. I have no doubt that the Nats would like to join the Euro but that would probably deter
many No voters from switching to Yes.

Scottish notes are not in fact legal tender ...

QUOTE
“The term legal tender does not in itself govern the acceptability of banknotes in transactions. Whether or not notes have legal tender status, their acceptability as a means of payment is essentially a matter for agreement between the parties involved. Legal tender has a very narrow technical meaning in relation to the settlement of debt. If a debtor pays in legal tender the exact amount he owes under the terms of a contract, he has good defence in law if he is subsequently sued for non-payment of the debt. In ordinary everyday transactions, the term ‘legal tender’ has very little practical application.”
(Ref. www.bankofengland.co.uk/banknotes/about/faqs.htm.)

Well done the SNP, three council by election victories yesterday, two in the former Labour heartland of Fife (Dunfermline Central and Rosyth) the other in Inverness Central.

Is it just a coincidence that Labour finished a poor fourth in both Fife constituencies and couldn't even get passed the first round of voting in the Highland capital the day after a tartan scarf wearing Jeremy (i'm a socialist not a unionist laugh.gif ) Corbyn paid a visit to Scotland to drum up support?

He didn't like me telling him that independence is the normal state of affairs for most countries on the planet, so he threw a hissy fit and tried to twist it to make me sound as though i had accused those who are anti Scottish independence of being abnormal.

Pathetic i know, but that's all they have left. yes.gif
