Re: Extinct in ten years?

"many Brits believe that within the next 10 years the country will be entirely cashless due the influx of alternative payment methods"

people forget that the cash in your wallet never suffers from connectivity issues, is largely immune to getting soaking wet and never goes flat.

I personally find it a lot easier to budget my week from a fixed amount of cash in my wallet, than trying to remember what the number in my internet bank account is (looking it up on the go is a pain in the ass, even with the best of apps).
