Cashless society May 14, 2022

Was in at the demo about the National Maternity Hospital outside the Dáil today. Decent-sized crowd but not massive or indeed a crowd of a size that would have the Government worried.

Whilst there I came upon one of the issues caused by the “cashless society” –
left-wing activists having to give their papers away as nobody had spare change for a ‘donation’!

Was funny as I was witnessing it happening around the place, I then heard a few people from a particular organisation chatting about it!

On a strike demo in Bristol a couple of years ago I ran into a one time comrade and wanted to buy a paper for old times’ sake. I had no cash. He had a card reader.

No, no, you’ve got that wrong. You should have said “left-wing activists having to give their papers away because they forgot to bring the card reader so people could tap a ‘donation’!

So now you don’t have to remember just the papers, the leaflets, the banner, the loudhailer, the whistles and the lighters (for burning imperialist flags) but you have to remember the bloody card reader as well?!!!

Surely they should just be signing you up for an email bulletin or to like a Facebook page? And then a card reader for donations.
