The Link network is attempting to counter claims that changes it is making to the way it operates will create “ATM deserts” by pledging to protect free-to-use cash machines a kilometre apart. Link plans to cut the fee that card providers pay to machine operators every time a customer withdraws cash, which has led to warnings that 10,000 out of the 55,000 free machines are at risk. This sparked fears that some areas will be left without a free machine or without one at all as providers shut unprofitable machines in deprived areas. In an attempt to defuse the row, Link said machines which are 1km or more away from the nearest free-to-use ATM will not be subject to the reduced interchange fee of 20p, down from 25p. This is thought to amount to about 2,000 machines. But the idea met with scepticism from Ron Delnevo, the executive director for Europe at the industry lobby group, the ATM Industry Association, who said Link appeared to be suggesting that town centres could have … [Read more...] about Link ATM network vows to retain free cash machines – 1km apart
For the most part American politics exists in its own bubble with its own preoccupations. But every now and then something that happens in a foreign country intrudes. And pokes its nose in. Big time. The 12 December 2019 UK General Election might be such a moment for the US Democratic Party - just as British politics imposed itself on the US presidential election on 23 June 2016, when the British people voted for Brexit. Coincidentally, Donald Trump arrived in Scotland the following day (not the day before as he has repeatedly claimed) and what the British people had just done was a galvanising moment in his campaign, a light bulb moment, as he prepared to face the American people five months later.So what should Democrats learn from the misery that befell the Labour Party last Thursday night? And more particularly can they afford to have Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren as their candidate and stand a chance of defeating Donald Trump in 2020 after the shellacking meted out to Jeremy … [Read more...] about Will UK provide light bulb moment for US Democrats?

The terse, typewritten note slipped under my door in a sealed envelope confirmed my appointment with India's Gravest Internal Security Threat. I'd been waiting for months to hear from them. I had to be at the Maa Danteshwari mandir in Dantewara, Chhattisgarh, at any of four given times on two given days. That was to take care of bad weather, punctures, blockades, transport strikes and sheer bad luck. The note said: "Writer should have camera, tika and coconut. Meeter will have cap, Hindi Outlook magazine and bananas. Password: Namashkar Guruji." Namashkar Guruji. I wondered whether the Meeter and Greeter would be expecting a man. And whether I should get myself a moustache. There are many ways to describe Dantewara. It's an oxymoron. It's a border town smack in the heart of India. It's the epicentre of a war. It's an upside down, inside out town. In Dantewara the police wear plain clothes and the rebels wear uniforms. The jail-superintendent is in jail. The prisoners are free (300 of … [Read more...] about Gandhi, but with guns: Part One
