‘Reject the cashless society while you still can’

August 6, 2020

LEGAL TENDER: “If you are a customer, pay with cash. If you are shop owner, remove these ridiculous signs that ask people to pay by card. Cash is legal tender, and it is our right to pay with cash. Banks are making it increasingly difficult to lodge cash and this has nothing to do with a virus, nor has this ‘dirty money’ trend.”

DIRTY VIRUS: Businesses say they won’t handle money because of the minimal risk of infection, why not wear gloves. Businesses will have handled cash during the Spanish Flu epidemic in 1917. Post from which I quote on social media below refers to banks moving against cash long before Covid-19 came on the scene, this was used as an opportunity to accelerate the process.

 

 

 

AS this medical crisis continues, please be careful not to be distracted about what is happening to your way of life with your presumed consent.


In the name of stopping infection, more businesses than ever are telling their staff that they will not handle cash due to the remote possibility they could contract Covid-19 handling it. Staff can wear gloves if they are worried.

If anyone reading this article genuinely thinks going cashless brings them freedom and convenience, the exact opposite of what you are being told is the reality.

‘Pub staff need cash for tips’


To give some modern-day examples, I have been frequently using a restaurant in Bournemouth to have wood-fired pizzas since they came back into the zone after being sidelined by the lockdown.

Unless you have the foresight to remember to add tips onto a bill, how can you do that without paying cash? If you did pay a tip by card, how can you be certain it would be passed by the restaurant to that staff member? If you pay the tip with cash in person, you know that staff member will receive it.

‘Hairdressers request cash for extras’


I recently had a hair cut salon with a mainstream High Street hair salon branch. Wearing my mask (as they were their visor) to proceed, on finishing the job, I assumed they wanted payment via card for convenience. Not so, the staff member concerned requested payment by cash so that he could pay their staff tips.

‘Most market stalls prefer cash’


If you visit a fresh produce market say at Wareham (in Dorset) on a Saturday or Wimborne on Sunday, it is possible some stall holders will have a chip and pin machine and they seem affordable, but if their margins are very small, is that going to be a commercial priority if they attend just two or three market days a week? It is very likely they be trading in cash for perishable goods, plants, food or crafts. Although affordable, the machines can have high operating costs for a small business.


A long time I cynically referred to a fictional character called Burt, aged 95, had macular denegeration and was expected to bank on-line, I didn’t think for one moment this kind of scenario would be acted out this year.

‘Go away old lady, we don’t take cash’


Edna Dalchin, a 94-year-old retired hosiery worker of Basford, Nottingham, wanted to purchase some tinned meat and a loaf of bread from the Birds Bakery in Bulwell, but the staff member refused to hand over the goods as they only paid by card. Mrs Dalchin only pays by cash. So much for the condescending hash tags #BeKind #WereAllInThisTogether, more like #YoureOldGoAway.

‘We are card-only, cash is dirty’


A manager of a nearby Birds Bakery said this callous statement: “One of the arrangements is we could open if it is card only and because cash is dirty. With the coronavirus and pandemic they want to minimise the risk to ourselves and customers.”

Had the Birds Bakery been in existence during the Spanish flu pandemic of 1917 in pre-digital times, the company would have been grateful for the cash transaction given cards wouldn’t have been in existence. Interestingly, they were founded in 1919 years, two years before this pandemic struck Europe.

‘Say the wrong thing and we’ll cut you off’


Right now businesses are having their accounts frozen because of having the wrong views due to the aggressive lobbying of special interest groups.


The Core Issues Trust charity was stripped of its banking services by Barclays Bank due to its controversial LGBT conversion therapy by LGBT activists.

This page doesn’t necessarily agree with this charity’s policy but is it really acceptable to take away someone’s ability to pay their mortgage and bills and plunge them into poverty by giving into to aggressive lobbying that seems motivated by hate and revenge?

‘They were religious, they won’t come for me’

But they’re only a Christian charity, they deserve it, right? But they are just religious nut jobs, they won’t come for me. You could be the company owner who makes a genuine mistake or has a genuine belief, and these same tactics could be used on your bank and suddenly you have no access to your money.

This is a new phenomenon and has not happened before. Visa and Pay Pal have also been stripping clients of services for what they perceive to be unacceptable views.

Yes, it may be unlikely but if you have cash put aside and it is still legal tender, it can buy time to find a solution in such circumstances.

This is part of a post I found by Dawn Rodgers, that I posted on my supporting Facebook page, Dorset and Somerset Community Watch and I will quote some of the most important parts of it.

‘Banks will decide what you can buy’

She said: “A cashless society guarantees that banks that have full control of every penny you own. Every transaction you make is recorded and all your movements and actions are traceable. The Government will decide what you can and cannot purchase.

“If your transactions are deemed in any way questionable, by those who create the questions, your money will be frozen, ‘for your own good’.

“I heard a story that a man contracted Covid through handling a £20 note. There is the same chance of Covid being on a card as there is on cash. If you cannot see how ridiculous this assertion is, there is little hope.

‘Cash is legal tender and you have a right to use it’

“If you are a customer, pay with cash. If you are shop owner, remove these ridiculous signs that ask people to pay by card. Cash is legal tender, and it is our right to pay with cash.

“Banks are making it increasingly difficult to lodge cash and this has nothing to do with a virus, nor has this ‘dirty money’ trend.

‘Climate of fear enables collusion with tyranny’

“Politics and greed is what is wrong with this world, not those who are trying to alert you to the reality in which you are blindly floating along whilst being immobilised by irrational fear. Fear has been created to keep you doing and believing in exactly what you are complacently doing.

“Pay with cash and say ‘no’ to a cashless society while you still have the choice.

A cashless society means total government control of your life.

CASH is:
★ a critical, ESSENTIAL component of Liberty.
★ a critical, ESSENTIAL defense against tyranny.

HMV records more or less ordered me to pay by card, and when I said no, I will use cash, I got a lecture from a fat Libtard “it” (with purple hair and a face full of metal), about how wrong it was to still be using cash … I politely told “it” to go forth and multiply … I won’t be going back.
