    I read a great comment – It's like being in an abusive relationship where you have no control over your money because someone else control's it. Tories abusing their powers yet again. Britcoin I nearly choked.

    CBDC'S are a one world digital currency.

    This news is at least a year old.
    CDBC's are bad news, they will enslave you. Get Bitcoin instead and choose freedom.

    In all of the government and central bank's promises of privacy, freedom and ease associated with this so-called Britcoin, lies the uncomfortable truth that all governments lied to its citizens during the pandemic.

    Why should this be any different?

    Cash is the last bastion of liberty left. The alternative is control, and under a Britcoin regime, governments can switch you off anytime you don't agree with their ideology.

    We are sleepwalking into a Chinese 'social credit' system, where your ability to bank, work, move about freely is decided by the whims of globalist leaders.

    Gentlemen, if you use Britcoin, your government will be able to track electronically, every purchase you make. Then your government will decree that all purchases must be made in Britcoin, and it will remove all other forms of currency from circulation. Then your government will decide that some of the purchases you are making (and that it is tracking) do not support diversity, inclusion, equity or climate change. Then your government will electronically cut off your ability to make those purchases. Then your government will electronically cut off your ability to make any purchases until you say with conviction that the sky is green. You see, gentlemen, your government thinks that the book "1984" is a User Manual.

    Easier to just operate on a purpose built, non-fungible, fully digital metric of currency, for the Social Credit System to control what you're allowed to purchase – rather than worry about all that pesky cash that can be exchanged privately. Keep an eye out – the Online Safety Bill is wanting to bring in Digital ID's which will be tied to any and all of social media accounts that adhere to the UK Government's demands which will then be tied to your Bank Account.

    Digital currency is a total control currency that will totally remove all your privacy in everything you buy and sell.
    Once it’s in you can never buy a single item without these crooks in government know when and where you have been.
    Stay clear and return to using cash where you can have privacy in what your spending your money on.

    The Government SHOULD NEVER have control over US! We are the ones who vote them in to serve us, not to control us. It is time to take back control of our individual sovereignty and freedoms!
    I hope that Reform and all the other conservative parties amalgamate and remove this current madness of corrupt politics.

    This could cause riots and possibly civil wars against the politicians and their global WEF & IMF masters.
