How to close a bank/building society branch:
Step 1. Reduce opening hours to be just a few hours a day.
Step 2. No longer open on weekends.
Step 3. Claim no one uses the branch.
Step 4. Close the branch.
Replace "bank/branch" with "health service", and "close" with the word "sell" and you've got your hidden Conservative manifesto plan right there. Removed

Replace 'Socialist' with 'conspiracy theorist' and you've got it right.

That is such a dumb and uneducated comment. No wonder no one votes labour or any of the other pointless parties any more.

Ah another whinging leftie. Banks are private companies. If branches are not active enough to make money, its obvious they will shut them. They are not a charity. Times are changing. Who even needs a bank branch these days?

What a ridiculous comment, whether you like or dislike this Goverment, more funding has gone into the NHS than ever before. The NHS will never have enough funding whoever is in control. Labour waste money in Wales, I have been asked to have an AAA, a Flu and Pneumonia Vaccine in the last six months from my GP, but id I am ill and want to see the GP it is impossible.

Keep on repeating the fake mantra - keep on losing elections.
Why have the BBC 'moderators' not deleted this post for being completely 'off topic'? Oh of course, it criticizes the govt. that's why. Silly me. Removed

Whilst online banking has increased, the fact is that for years banks have steadily made it more and more unpleasant for customers to visit branches. The waits have got longer and you can hardly ever actually talk to someone. The 'old' banks will be a thing of the past when customers do move to 'new' banks. Good riddence to them.

Funny that. Drive down Hornchurch high street most days and there are queues outside almost all the bank branches. Not all for ATM either. There is clearly still a need for easy to reach personal banking.

I have not been into a bank branch in over 10 years, I cant think of any reason I would need to. The bank I am with doesn't even have branches as far as I know.
