TRADITIONALISTS are in uproar after it emerged that the new plastic banknotes will carry Hitler’s image.
The new polymer £5 and £10 notes will be cheaper to produce, more durable and have a Third Reich theme.
A Bank of England spokesman said: “Everyone always moans bitterly when we change the size, shape or texture of currency, as if it really makes any fucking difference.
“It annoys us very much so we decided to deliberately antagonise the general public, just for our own perverse amusement.
“Serves you all right for bitching so hard when we made 5ps a bit smaller.”
56-year-old Norman Steele said: “I don’t see what was wrong with the old notes that didn’t have Hitler on them. Why do they have to keep changing everything?”
Teacher Tom Logan said: “This is terrible. I mean, would it be too much to ask to have a less obvious Nazi like Adolf Eichmann, Joseph Goebbels or Klaus Barbie?
“Everything has to be so dumbed down these days.”
