Without hard cash, how do you teach young children its value? They need the experience of taking a £1 coin and seeing what they can buy with it.
When it's just numbers on a screen, cash becomes an abstract concept. And so does debt.
OK boomer. Because of course, people getting into debt has only started happening since the digital age... Removed

I think those who use the word "boomer" should be despised in the same way as those using sterotypical sexist and racial epithets. How do you feel about that?

I work on checkouts at a garden centre and feel very uncomfortable handling cash, especially just before Christmas, when thankfully we were locked down. It increases face to face contact time , and brings with it the risk of coronavirus transfer. This is made worse when people actually lick their fingers to count notes out ( gross ) I hope to stay on furlough until I am vacinated ( 62 years old)
You don't like other people.
You don't want to work.
You are terrified of a disease that is unlikely to harm you at all.

What is the point in you? What are you clinging on for?

Until it is enshrined in law my cash is still good enough. If it’s not accepted I’ll simply go elsewhere.

In most towns, dozens of Chinese takeaways will only take cash (especially on weekends). About time Mr Taxman sat outside a few of those and counted how many deliveries they make on a Saturday night and compare with how much they declare...

Your store cards tell anyone who wants to know what you buy, with or without cash. You can choose not to have them but most people do have them and society hasnt fallen appart so far... The Gov already know what people on average buy and lets be honest, you are pretty average, more detailed information makes very little real diference.

By "trade between themselves in their community" you are talking about tax evasion.

Time for Britain to join the rest of the world.

Legalise Cannabis.

Cash will change hands, cash will be spent on confectionery. Britain will be jolly again.

Less cash transactions means more folk likely to use bank account then therefore more likely to attract the attention of the VAT and TAX man. No more getting paid in cash then spending that straight away down the supermarket.

"A cashless society will be the end of personal freedom. " Really? Are we all going to be thrown in prison if cash becomes obsolete? For goodness sake stop massively overusing the personal freedom argument at every opportunity, it is like a talking version of the Daily Mail (eeeewwwwwww).

Unfortunately too many young people are too 'woke' to realise that they are being manipulated to stop using cash even though it will have dire consequences. Do poor people start bartering again in a cashless society. One good thing in a cashless society, how will junkies pay for their drugs or people pay illegals less than a living wage to work in sweatshops etc; ?

We are not a communist country, true. But the ideology is seeping in, in every western country. The US democrats actually tabled a motion last week that no media should be allowed unless it was state sanctioned. Unbelievable, but true. And that's the USA...how far they have fallen (about to fall, in the next 4 years). Oh the UK could absolutely be a communist country, don't believe any other.
Oh dear, more Trump BS. What's not in dispute is a Nazi-loving white supremacist and his ignorant racist supporters tried unsuccessfully to overthrow the popular democratic vote for a fascist dictatorship, aided by extreme right media who spread lies about the validity of the election. Even Trump's own appointed judges and Republican state lackeys scorned his unsubstantiated claims as ridiculous. Removed

Exactly. It has always been a plan to go into a cashless society. Anyone who doesn't agree with government or didn't have their 6 monthly Jab will all of a sudden realise they no longer can buy food. This is already happening in China
you tinfoil hat wearing crackpot... what a theory! But yeah that's where this whole shit show of a year is going... "Covid" is making this all possible Removed

The problem is people who are totally selfish to the detriment of society Whether the builder evading tax, the taxi driver declaring 12k a year not40k and claiming 26k a year in benefits, the criminals laundering through cafes, hair salons, restaurants scrapyards, the billionaires and PLCs "based" in the Caymans or those raping the furlough while working for cash. How to solve it I don't know.
