But they still live on the margins of society. And, for the record, through my work, I know of very poor young families who do not have access to the internet so cannot do online banking even if they wanted to. Don't believe everything you read, how do you KNOW the statistics you are quoting are accurate? And yes, I do think you are probably simples!
And I bet that is the internet providers telling us that! But even if that is accurate, it's OK then for the 10% to be ignored, disenfranchised and live on the margins of society? What a nice person you are!
@leatash , you prove my point, you lead a very privileged life! and for the record, my job entailed me working across the whole of this country for 18 years living everywhere i went for at least a week at a time, and i still do some work which involves travelling all over the country, so it is not a fact that you see more of the country than i do. and because i was working i didn’t see the nice ...
Yes libraries that are open every day all day long.............NOT! And there’s not so many of those left now. And nobody ever gets their account hacked!!!! Try telling that to the poor s***s that lose thousands through hacking!
@leatash , because you really think everyone is on the internet and have no idea how many people in this country live in poverty and cannot afford the luxury of the internet! you need to get out of dawlish and see a bit of the rest of the country!
A story in the media this week about a couple who sent the deposit for their house purchase to the wrong account (well he did!) because he got one number wrong! At the time of the report the bank still has not traced where the money went but £9000 of it had been spent! On line banking is fine for some things but not for everything.
Well all can say is that most of those 84 customers seem to be in the bank every time I go! And just because two people in the happy hut have mobile phones this means everyone in the entire country is on the internet! What a sheltered and privileged life leatash leads.
I agree, that is exactly what the banks want, everyone banking online. It’s the same with the surgery, they want you to order your repeat prescriptions online and in order to push us into doing so we can no longer drop them off at Boots. If you don’t do it online you HAVE to take it to the surgery! But.........what about those people not online, who maybe can’t afford to pay for internet access? ...
NatWest in Teignmouth is to close in the next few months. I don’t know how NatWest can justify this decision as every time I go into the bank the queue is horrendous, showing clearly it is a well used branch.
Why not spend the money on replacing the hideous bandstand we have put up with for years? And I do mean a BANDSTAND, not an awful out of place armadillo as was proposed in 2014. There are some excellent examples of tasteful bandstands, Exmouth and Dartmouth spring to mind. At least it would be used by every age group and actually enhance the lawn area. Ok, I’m now waiting for Mrs C to make ...
