  1. Cash is King - or maybe not

    I visited Iceland earlier this year and I'm yet to see an Icelandic note or coin. It was contactless everywhere. Meanwhile, here in Yorkshire my local pub doesn't accept cards at all. It's a Sam Smith's establishment though and their CEO/owner is renowned for being a bit of a maverick. ...

  5. Poll Poll: Scottish Independence

    I'm a lifelong Labour voter, but, having heard the crap coming out of the Tories this week, I am seriously considering voting 'Yes' in the referendum if that is going to be the future. I'd be interested to hear other's thoughts.

  6. Money: The greatest scam in history.

    Following on from a post I made in the Labour Party thread, here's a good explanation of the system which rules our lives; a system which, we are told, is the meaning of our lives, yet is never discussed and never explained. Instead there is a tacist and unquestioning attitude that this money...
