On Today this morning (GF still refusing to switch), there was something about copper coins and going cashless. I was only half listening, but at one point the guest they were interviewing said she’d been to Manchester recently and couldn’t pay for a pint with contactless.
It seemed really patronising and typical of that kind of London-thinking; the rest of the country are still living in caves and pissing in the street. I don’t go to Manchester much at all, but find it hard to believe this is true. Especially as I can’t think of a pub in Nottingham where you can’t pay by card.
Can you buy a pint with card in Manchester?
How cashless are you?
Do you care if we get rid of copper coins?
