It seems that vegetarians, vegans and animal rights campaigners now have something else to protest about with revelations that the new £5 note contains animal tallow.

Anybody wanting to donate these horrible things to a good cause, PM me. I'll take them off your hands.

A petition has already been launched to remove the new note - which only became legal tender in September - from circulation. At the time of writing it had been signed by more than 5,000 people.

Just get a freakin' life.

I think it's cow, a guy I knew could turn it into cheap diesel for cabbies,
he was as thick as a plank so it can't be a complicated process X)

Why would you even do that anyway. Is there not a synthetic alternative? Considering vegans aren't exactly uncommon these days it's either stupid or callous to create cash with animal products.

Not sure why the OP mentioned vegetarians. Maybe doesn't understand the basics.

I'm sure vegetarians are over the moon that animal fats are in their money.... Oh wait, they're not.
(or maybe you didn't read the story)

Even their quoted tweets are from vegans, hence the #govegan #vegan tags.

A further petition was created when it was announced that Winston Churchill would replace Elizabeth Fry on the face of the currency, meaning no English banknotes would feature women (apart from the queen).

FFS, now I'm getting angry...

I didn't take my knowledge from anything more than the story itself because, frankly, I don't care enough about vegetarians or vegans to want to know any more.
The story quoted vegetarians, as does the SAME story in The Guardian, The Mirror, BBC News and every other media outlet.

Okay I get it. You don't care enough to know the difference between a vegetarian and a vegan (but do care enough to make threads about them curiously )so you copy and paste what the media says.

And end up talking nonsense X)

Pretty much says it all about most folk these days. Copy what the media say as writ without questioning it.

Not even a vegetarian or vegan myself, but I know enough to not look ignorant when I type.

Pretty much called you ignorant for being ignorant. That's offensive. Why would a non-vege who posts animal product laced Dominos deals be offended. :D

"The new £5 notes contain animal fat in the form of tallow. This is unacceptable to millions of vegans & vegetarians in the U.K. We demand that you cease to use animal products in the production of currency that we have to use," wrote petition founder Doug Maw.

Oh dear... Looks like the guy that started the petition doesn't know the difference either..... How ignorant.

I think this is wrong, vegans and vegetarian people share something in common mostly they don't want harm or killing of Animals to be anything to do with them, And this is forcing it on them in a way. So yes dismissing any difference between vegan and vegetarians as it is irrelevant, The government needs to stop using that ingredient in the currency asap!.

Most non-meat eaters wear leather shoes etc so this is a none issue as long as you don't go all Heston B and start cooking with them.

Well I hope they stop using diesel, petrol and other organic fuels cos they're made up of billions of animals.
They are allowed wood, and nothing else.

Most non meat eaters.? Done some research have you.? :p
How many non-leather shoes do you see in proper shoe shops that aren't for sports?
If the majority of people boycotted leather shoes you'd see a lot more suitable replacements in stores.
