As some of you may know I am by inclination although not in practice a vegetarian.
As some of you may know the new Bank of England £5 note contains minute traces of tallow which is an animal product.
It now appears that a café in Cambridge is refusing to accept the notes because they will not have animal products in their establishment. ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-38184599 )
Presumably, therefore, they will refuse to serve anyone wearing leather shoes, silk underwear or woolly jumpers.
How fortunate are we to have such first world problems to worry about?
