Don't burn those notes yet!

Amiguity is not the sole preserve of politicians. Despite the claim by the Northern Bank that it “is to replace its entire current series of notes“, the statement issued by the Northern Bank goes on to make it clear that only some of those notes will be re-issued.. the more expensive (to produce) £5 notes “will not be affected”.. hmmm.. I wonder why that is? – oh, and it’s now the £26.5million heist.

    The fact that the bank has now decided to replace the notes (on police advice) is an indication that the PSNI does not believe that they will have any success in recovering any of the loot, despite their excellent intelligence and evidence already garnered.

    Slugger regulars will recall that I advised such a course of events on Xmas Eve.

    So Gonzo has it wrong, YOU are Hugh Orde and I claim the £5-00!

    Pat McLarnon – advisor to the PSNI? 😉

    On a more serious point Pat, you’ll notice if you read the statement that it seems little more than an, expensive, PR exercise.. only the cheapest (to produce) notes are being replaced.

    There’s insults and then there’s insults, you cannot compare me to that incompetent tosser.

    ‘Pat McLarnon – advisor to the PSNI? ;)’

    Make that advisor to the Northern Bank, don’t associate me with those bunch of tossers.
