All gone balls, otherwise known as It’s all bollocks! otherwise known as Bucko the Moose, has a piece on the cashless society.
If you are not self employed, when was the last time you had the opportunity to hold your money in your hand before you gave it to the government as tax? Probably never. Tax is taken from our wages at source in the form of PAYE – Pay As You Earn. We don’t even get to touch it before they take it from us.
That is true, except that I am very much a cash in hand person – everything I can pay in cash, I do. If something cost £5000, I’d pay it in cash, no questions asked. This doesn’t mean I intend to be dishonest, it just means that I don’t want Ole Snoopy Eyes, the govt, following my every move.
And the idea of cash payments being shady is part of the crap the govt is trying to get people to believe. It just means a person would like to control his finances and run his own life the way he chooses without wearing the equivalent of a dog tag.
