If I were in England, I’d be hoarding cash…..
So they (the banks) plan on blackouts…apparently bad enough that they are buying backup generators.
Of course, all the stores won’t be able to process payment cards without power to the terminals, and the data infrastructure and internet won’t have power to transmit that payment data from the store to the banks. I suppose that wireless can take up some of the slack, but that requires power too….
Without cash, the economy as a whole will grind to a halt pretty fast. I doubt that there is enough cash to supply the need, either.
Oughta be interesting, if they do have long term blackouts.
