I just don't think there is a need for the traditional bank as everything can be done on the internet.

Of course there is ffs! Not everyone has the internet! Why don't people and moreso banks realise this????

and they have live chat if you have any problems with your bank account.

and that can be done in a fucking branch....what happens when the IT systems crash as been happening more and more and people are fucked for bills being paid, wages coming through and scammers are withdrawing cash (and THAT was happening) from customers accounts? The bottom line is that banks want to have less cash and let customers get fucking on with it and when something goes wrong....apologies blah blah fucking blah! It is better speaking to someone face to face rather than some non identity on a fucking screen who can simply give you a standard answer.

Yeah thats true about the internet, didn't think about peolpe living with no connection. 

The problem with not having a direct debit is you can miss payments. Paying with a direct debit eliminates that, well if you have the money available in your bank!

What happens if the bank sets on fire of loses power. You can be fucked both ways. 

Anyway, think we should go back on topic now 🙂 👍

Been that way in NZ for some time.
You can't buy a lotto ticket on credit card and you can't do cash out on an auto-checkout machine if paying by credit card.

When I was still employed I used my CC for everything, but when I retired I converted from credit card to debit card just so I won't be tempted to spend what I don't have.

I think i'm a bit of a hypocrite saying adverts should be banned and then moaning about all the adverts everywhere. 

I have a pop down advert which should appear once a day at the top of the forum for a gambling site, then I also have 3 links on the side bard which are all gambling!!!

🥴

where do we draw the line then mate ? No alcohol, betting, obviously no tobacco sponsorship. The problem I have is that very few people in this day and age are prepared to take personal responsibility for self inflicted problems....take drugs ? the NHS will take care of you....drink to excess ? the NHS will take care of you.....bet more than you can afford ? Why should other people have to continually sort out self inflicted problems. Tell you what mate....see druggies ? You will probably disagree with me but these cunts should be given a bad batch of heroin and hopefully that eradicate part of the problem. I have absolutely no sympathy for these scum! Rant over and apologies for going off topic.

Mate most Europe don’t allow any of those three and I don’t have a problem with that. More and more sports are banning advertising them 

As for your comments on druggies as you put it mate they don’t plan on being junkies the same as alcoholics don’t plan on being alcoholics. Maybe actually look at where and who are bringing the drugs in also more people die from smoking it also costs the NHS more. They won’t ban that though to many rich people would lose cash

Sometimes I should engage my brain before I open my mouth. I'm away for a ciggie.
