I wonder what the BOFH's opinion of this news is, as he's a big Irn-Bru fan

The Clydesdale Bank released a plastic fiver into circulation in march last year in Scotland. I've had a few of them. I know at one point they were selling on eBay for £100 each.
I work in security at a major site that is on a uk list of sites that are high risk for a terriost attack to take place, because of the events we hold(think Paris attack last year or Brighton hotel bombing 1984 for the kind of site we are). We are told to keep a eye out for people taking photographs of the site, when we see someone we let control know and they'll let me know if they know about it or not. If they don't they'll put a camera on the person and ask me or one of the other guards to go and talk to the person. Once we've spoken to the person and got the information on what they're up to, control is informed and the person is told if they can continue or not. 99% of the time they're allowed to keep on taking photographs.
According to Google translate the french part says

National Express did sue the 225's that GNER used as that's what runs to Scotland, however they never re-painted them. Instead just put stickers over the GNER saying National Express East Cost. One big thing I noticed they didn't do is use the electronic destination screens that are on the doors of the 225's instead its a bit of paper telling you the info. The governments East Coast company’s the same. what the point of the screens if they're not going to use them.
That's all good and well, however when i'm checking i.d on one of the bars at work(i work in a concert venue), the bar manager has told us we only except a Driving Licence or a Passport as they Proof of Age card and especially the i.d cards are not worth the paper they're printed on. Hell just before christmas i had someone show me their rail card as i.d wtf.
i've got a friend who just got a broadband connection installed in Glasgow. her local exchange is a 5 min walk from her house but instead she's connected to the Barrhead exchange which is 3 1/2 miles away. why doesn't thew government take over BT Wholesale and lay the fibre network themselves and it would mean the network is nothing to do with BT
