Periodic Videos - How tough is the new £5 note?

Belle expérience et billet de 5£ intéressant car il se veut pas (facilement) déchirable, mais je crois que ce serait interdit en France HoupaHⓒ cf legiFrance, loi abrogée en 1992. Quelqu'un pour me contredire ?
Il n'y a rien de plus facile qu'une Loi pour en rajouter une couche =)

(*) According to the Bank of England, under the Currency & Banknotes Act 1928 it is illegal to deface our banknotes (by printing, writing or impressing upon them words, letters or figures, etc.), although the question of whether or not to prosecute in individual cases is up to the police and the courts.
