Dud Northern Bank notes already…

The newly designed Northern Bank notes (no, not these ones) were launched on the 9th March this year following the Northern Bank raid. Well, Slugger can reveal that it has not taken the forgers long to get to work. Dolores Kelly the SDLP’s candidate in Upper Bann was in Tescos in Lurgan today, when she discovered one of her £10 notes was in fact counterfeit. That’s just about fifty days later. Back to the drawing board?

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
