  10. The lettering and pictures normally look like they have been stretched by the tight cunts trying to keep hold of them!

    Bollox, true scots never even get to see a £20 pound note! They're kept for the incomers from over the border

    And there'll always be one of us about to tell you are wrong.

    They are not legal tender. Legal currency perhaps, but NOT legal tender. And don't rely on insisting on others accepting them as such. Or you'se get a slap - possibly even with a spurtle.

  14. They can be a pain in the arse to exchange outside the UK though.

    I have been told that they are as good as gold though, as the issuing banks in Scotland can only issue as many notes as their assets can cover. I've been taking that with a grain of salt since the Royal Bank of Scotland just about went tits up a couple of years ago.
