I am saying bank payments are legal tender

As the Bank of England says:

What’s classed as legal tender varies throughout the UK. In England and Wales, it’s Royal Mint coinsOpens in a new window and Bank of England notes. In Scotland and Northern Ireland it’s only Royal Mint coins and not banknotes.

There are also some restrictions when using small coins. For example, 1p and 2p coins only count as legal tender for any amount up to 20p.

Many common and safe payment methods such as cheques, debit cards and contactless aren’t legal tender. But again, it makes no difference in everyday life.

Given that he insists he knows how to redesign the whole system it would aid if he knew what the current one was.

    Lack of knowledge (or understanding) has never really been an impediment for Richard Murphy.

    He’s a unique combination of arrogance, stupidity, ignorance and energy.

  2. If there is a difference between Murphy and the Bank of England, it will be the Bank who is wrong.

  3. He also believes he is a world-leading authority on Covid-19. The man’s ego is huge. Either that or he is a puppet sitting on a toilet brush

    Its a necessary condition for the way he operates.

  5. Oh dear Adrian – posting a direct link to the fat fvcker here is a no no, a faux pas, dropping a loud fart during dinner with the in-laws.

    It’s like you’ve just played a series of wolf notes at a baroque concerto, or rolled six six six with three dice at a Christian fundraiser crapshoot, or drawn a cartoon picture of the Prophet (PBUH) on the tablecloth in a Lahore cafe.

  6. How do the Mussulmans know that a sketch is a sketch of Mahomet?

    Do they all own an illicit ur-sketch?

    Yes, Spud pigeon-holing all ethnic minorities as’these groups’ who are apparently too stupid to have or obtain a photo ID gives us a glimpse of his view of the world.

  8. Interesting… So I’ve paid with non-legal tender whenever I went outside of the Heartlands of during my sojourns on the British Isles?

    I can tack that one on to the list of Crimes I’ve Committed In The UK then…… 😉
