Laughable, the Bankrupt of England want to be the only issuer of fake money, they wouldn't know what real money or worth was if it hit them in the face.

The Bank of England has banned a gift stop selling novelty tissues which look like £10 and £50 notes – in case people try to pass them off as real money.

They must be very afraid of their crumbling monopoly if they go after tissue sellers...

I have a wad of these.

Their value will go up as they can't print them no more!

You can buy them at gift shops - I believe the gift shop in Port Solent (under the chinese restaurant) may still sell them.

The BoE is just getting twitchy about the currency becoming indistinguishable from tissues. Perhaps Kleenex should send a cease and desist letter to the BoE for producing money that cannot be distinguished from bog roll?

People pay £90 for a new £50 note on eBay? No wonder I've been going wrong all my life with money, it all makes perfect sense to me now... :)

So the value of these tissues is going to skyrocket, now that Merv has restricted the tissue money supply. [img]http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif[/img]

Maybe they're planning to cut down on the physical quality of their paper notes they same way they have been debasing the coinage with a cheaper mix of metals and they are worried that their new, cheaper to make paper money is going to be indistinguishable .... :lol:

A bit off topic - at a quick glance it's seems quite easy to mistake a £50 note for a £10 note as they look very similar and the colours being similar. How people with poorer eyesight would tell the difference is anybody's guess.

So there's more than one way to devalue consumers/customers money.

They could easily have chosen a more distinctive colour.

My bank is now trying to push them when I go in for cash but they're unacceptable because of the £10 similarity - that and the use of large denomination notes just seems to encourage a bit more inflation of prices which I'm sure the're very well aware of, so for me at least they're a very definite no no.

Tell the BoE to F off. They have no legal right to tell anyone what to do.

If they want to argue to a court that the currency looks like toilet paper, let them. They wouldn't dare. The whole world would want tickets.

So just tell them to F off.
