Vegans furious as Bank of England admits ‘trace’ of animal fat in £5 notes


Re: Blasphemy?

"Just to clarify, doesn't this mean that using the placcy fivers is blasphemy for Hindus?"

I think the simple solution to this (and other issues around using beef tallow in the new notes) would be to substitute vegan tallow into the process - a win win solution.

A vegan that I know is very particular about what she eats, but wearing leather is fine (assuming they still make Doc Martins with leather) and she drinks Guinness quite happily, despite the fact that until fairly recently they used fish by-products to clarify it after brewing - as is done with most beers.
