It's legal tender in NI - obviously!

I hate to be pedantic, but as you insisted this was "obviously" the case, I will be.

Norn Iron banknotes are not legal tender (a term that has a very specific meaning) anywhere in the UK, including Norn Iron itself.

In that case tell us which banks in NI would refuse Norn Iron notes currently in circulation as not being legal tender?

Why? I never claimed they would. You simply made a factually incorrect statement and I pointed it out.

My comment about changing the colour of the notes was a reference to the Northern Bank robbery, not designed to derail the whole thread. Over the Bar, if you have one of these dodgy withdrawals the notes are OK, they'll just get you from the records and the camera in the atm.

I brought 3 of old brown northern bank 10 notes my gran had to the bank last year and they exchanged straight away without as much as a 'where did you get them'.

So you accept it is considered legal tender by all banks in Norn Iron then?  I expect there's a pin head somewhere you want to go for a dance on too?   ::)

Your continued ignorance is astounding. Acceptance of it as a form of payment does not make it "legal tender".

Your inability to read a sentence is the only astounding part of this. Banks here are not accepting the notes because they are an acceptable form of payment in society, they accept because the are considered legal tender here.  And to the original point, a bank can't simply decide to make it's notes worthless because an ATM gets robbed or the Northern Bank gets done over. Millions of of old Northern Bank notes have made their way back to the bank from all over the world in the years since the robbery and they have had little option but to accept them, not because they offer fantastic customer service, but because the notes are considered legal tender despite whatever completely disregarded quirk in law you are hanging your hat on.  Law might provide for those bestowed with freedom of a city to drive their cattle thru it but can I happen in reality?  No.  Could you attempt to lodge 100 of Norn Iron notes in any bank here and be told sorry we can't accept because by the letter of the law it's worthless paper and not legal tender. Yes.  Could it happen in reality? No, because the notes are considered legal tender by all banks here.

They've shoved every substance on earth into greyhounds since dog racing began.  It happens in every meet and most races.

Uber banned from operating in London. WTF. I dont understand the reasoning for this. Surely the competition is good for consumers?

I'm sure a lot of people have chased rabbits while on cocaine.

Deep heat on the ballix works just as well.
