I spend a fair bit of time in Denmark and cash has been virtually eliminated from society there. The first time I went, not being familiar with it and the fact my shitty bank charges extortionate rates to use my card abroad, I drew some cash out and gave my friend a load of DKK to go the bar in a pub we were in. She was genuinely surprised. Reckoned she hadn’t physically seen cash in at least a couple of years and the bar probably wouldn’t take it as there’d likely be no change to give. She was wrong about that though, so somebody must still be using it. I’ve got a Monzo card now though, I had to give in.

One day when we were walking through Aarhus, there was a busker playing outside the station and I asked her how he got paid, turns out he had a card reader in his guitar case on the floor.
 ‘Ah’ I thought, how the fuck do you give to beggars? Not that there’s many about in Aarhus like but still.

‘Homeless people? Card reader round their neck mate’. Hat fucked. The Running Man set inside a Danish YMCA.

Really enjoy that genre of Covid era journalism where a journalist goes to Venice/Amsterdam/Prague/Edinburgh and locals go "oh it's fucking brilliant, love how few tourists there are...we've got our city back".
"and we have no money"

Health minister now blaming pubs for spreading the virus.

Pub near where I live announced today that one of their managers is in an ICU on a ventilator, and they're the kind of place that follows the rules.

I don't think you can even have a bank account without an address in the UK.

so why keep them open. NE England brings in restricted measures (no socialising outside of household), but pubs remain open. FUCK SAKE
