That doesn't work if I get my cash from change or cashback in the pub. A lot of that cash will have been placed in the till from tradesmen, who in turn will have got it from middle class customers who will have withdrawn it from an ATM in Waitrose.

Obviously I'll have to up my drinking a little bit if I want to finance the importation of a tonne of cocaine or a small war by this method.
