Westminster/Bank of England Issue New Order Straight After Referendum. It looks like the Bank of England issued new orders for banks in Europe not to accept the Scottish Pound. The Order went into effect on Oct 1st, and considering how the wheels of bureaucracy work, would take a week or two to be implemented; suggesting it was passed the minute the results were in on the 19th of Sept, Scotland’s Blank Friday.
‘What do you make of this?
Sums it all up really!
From my friend Ron Shankland:
I don’t know to put a message
on to Facebook that will go all over . .to everyone that wants to see it. Can one of you copy this for me and do that, please??
I live in Germany and this morning, 2nd January, 2015, I went to my village bank. The VOLKSBANK is Germany’s second largest bank. I put down 35 Scots 20-pound notes on the counter. “Can you change these into Euros please?”
The lady looked at them and said, “Sorry, since October 1st 2014, we can only change Bank of England notes from the UK”. I got the manager to come over, asked who had written that order, and made quite a fuss, believe me. I’ve been a customer of theirs for years. The manager made a couple of calls and came back. He said, apologetically, “Apparently the British Government in London recommended that all European banks only change English notes, I’m sorry, it seems to be a political decision.” I asked him to call the Sparkasse, his competitor, and ask them. They also said, “No, no Scots notes at all. ”
PEOPLE, CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS? ? THE 3 POLITICAL ENGLISH BOSSES COME HARING UP TO SCOTLAND A WEEK BEFORE THE REFERENDUM AND LITERALLY BEG THE SCOTS TO STAY IN THE UNION. .. .AND A SHORT TIME LATER, THEY ISSUE AN ORDER LIKE THAT TO THE BANK OF ENGLAND??
I SAID TO THE MANAGER, “BUT SCOTLAND IS STILL PART OF THE UK! !”
“The Bank of England doesn’t seem to think so”, he said, shrugging his shoulders apologetically. I left that bank fuming. Who the HELL do these politicians and bankers in London think they are? ?? ?
As I said, would one of you (or all of you) be good enough to put this on Facebook? ?? And if anyone south of the border starts on about the Scots again, I will get on the next plane over, visit his place and discuss the matter PERSONALLY with him.. and how!! I NEVER get angry. .. but I am RAGIN’. ..! PLEASE. .. PUT THIS ON THE WEB!! Thanks in advance,
