According to Link who operate the majority of atms in 2015 there were 70,588 cash machines in the UK and by 2020 that figure was 53,813 that's a reduction of about 25% over 5 years so we can clearly see the direction of travel. Increasingly people are happy indeed prefer to use contactless for small purchases and older people have become aware of the security benefits of not carrying cash that's apart from the hygiene benefits of not handing cash which we have all become aware of in the last eighteen months.

Whilst I have no particular problem with paying by card, it has to be said very strongly that there is absolutely no known link between cash handling and the transmission of Covid 19 and never has been.  The World Health Organisation were making that clear in Marc 2020.

We have used cash happily for centuries but we're sleepwalking into a future of not having it because of an ill informed fear.  Although frankly thanks to the increasingly difficult situation for businesses struggling to deposit cash at basis, I am convinced more than a few businesses are quite happy to use Covid as an excuse not to take cash as it makes their lives much easier.

As the number of cash machines diminish people will get used to other ways of paying and the decline in the use of cash will accelerate.
Who is going to be first with the Save the ATM petition.

Just bumping the useful information from The National Federation of SubPostmasters (NFSP) to the top of this thread :) :

Closure of local bank branch: Barclays bank, Marple branch

On 20 August 2021, Barclays bank, Marple branch, 10 The Hollins, Stockport Road, Marple, Stockport, Cheshire, SK6 6AZ is due to close. This will doubtless be disappointing to Barclays customers in Marple. However, alternative banking provision is available to local residents at post office branches nearby.

The nearest post offices to the closing Barclays bank, Marple branch are:

1. Marple PO
Unit 2 The Ridgedale Centre
Hollins Lane
Marple
Stockport
SK6 6AW

2. Marple Bridge PO
14-16 Town Street
Marple Bridge
Stockport
SK6 5AA

3. Compstall PO
229 Market Place
Compstall
Stockport
SK6 5HZ

Each of these branches offers banking services - including deposits, free cash withdrawals and balance checks, as well as offering face-to-face access to government services, bill payment, foreign currency, travel insurance and, of course, postal services. There are currently 2,000 free-to-use ATMs installed across the UK post office network also.

Post offices are proving vital to retaining people’s and business’s access to cash as the banks continue to desert the high street in order to cut costs and increase their profits.

Every post office plays a vital role within the heart of the local community. Post offices provide a reliable and essential service which has continued at a high standard across the whole of the UK throughout the pandemic.

For further information, please contact Ruth Buckley-Salmon on 07766 524956 or via email at ruth.buckley-salmon@nfsp.org.uk

Yes well indeed Britain has always been a champion of modernity and forward thinking. Rose coloured spectacles come to mind.

I am aware of Cromwell, didn't end well for the bodies of Cromwell or Bradshaw, as it is part of local history if people aren't aware.

Well after they're deaths obviously.

Just making a point it's all well and good being able to discuss politics like in the example of France.

But knowing the monolithic systems they have and how so little changes due to the many layers of bureaucracy, resulting in the rise of the yellow vests.

Democracy.

The UK politically had been a stable country, with no real revolutions unlike our continental counterparts.

Think you may have a gap in your history.  It may have been a very long time ago but don't forget Cromwell and the abolition of the monarchy.  Followed later of course by the restoration.



Also worth remembering that many European countries (Germany, Belgium, Italy and more) are very young.  And that our status as an island has protected us from a lot of the political changes in Europe

ID cards are a good example of this unrest, you have to carry one abroad to prove your a citizen, in the UK there has never been a requirement and you can't even demand it or be forced to identify yourself.

No really sure I could ever put France and Germany on any political pedestals.

Really how strange

As they say, it's the least

Whilst our system is far from perfect, we haven't had a revolution in quite a long while. As they say, it's the least worst option.

As they say talk is cheap, kissing babies and all the other pointless political fawnings.
