SCOTTISH Nationalists have reacted with fury to a new bank note design that does not demand independence.
The new Royal Bank of Scotland £5 note features a picture of some writer instead of popular quotes from Scottish literature such as ‘freedom from English oppression’ and ‘vote SNP’.
Nationalist Bill McKay said: “We Scots want to be reminded of our oppression whenever we buy something from a shop.
“It is woven into the very fabric of our being from an ancient time when golden, musical mists covered this sacred, magical land and a man was free to be unbelievably Scottish 24 hours a day.”
A spokesman for Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, added: “If you use the ancient Scotto-Japanese art of origami you can fold the note in such a way that it reads, ‘England is a toilet full of racists’.
“That’s a reasonable compromise.”
