    Lots of songs reference cash money, a sign of its cultural significance notably among the poor and dispossessed....Can't imagine anyone being inspired to write a paean to their contactless card or online bank account tho'.......:hmm:

    Did I post up the links saying," Here. These articles are perfectly aligned to my viewpoint"? Why no, I did not.

    I think retailers should be law be obliged to accept cash payments. I pay for a lot of goods on the nail with cash. My fridge from Currys from example. I don't want that taken away from me.

    Are you saying you would support a move to abolish cash and replace it with government backed E currency?

    Im not clear if you have actually said yes or no.

    This thread is starting to get to be full of links. Which I'm not keen on.

    Ploughed through few a few. Teuchters link had this:

    http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/going-cashless-can-learn-swedens-experience/

    This shows that the State has role in pushing towards cashless society.

    Another thing that this article states is that Swedes:

    I don't think that is the case in this country. Trust is an issue here.

    The researcher they interviewed was asked about pros and cons. What he says does not make me support move to cashless society:

    I see you have no sympathy for the downtrodden, card-less masses of Stockwell that are being excluded :mad:

    noticed a few places now only accepting card. All food and drink/bars, although mostly in areas like Soho.

    To be fair, they're very accommodating to their regulars. This isn't the place to elaborate but they do make sure the local community are well served.

    If you want a normal, good value, traditional cafe nestled amoungst the sea of pretentious hipster cafes at the end of Rye Lane, may i suggest you try 'Ozzies Cafe'. On a level with Sam's on Acre Lane.

    I voted remain and if we leave I'll be demanding it return of LSD just to see those stupid people trying to manage counting in twelves and scores.
    We'll need to devalue the pound so I think one pound to one new old penny should be about right and we can have farthings again.
