I SHARE Tony Trent’s views on the discrimination against people who do not bank online.

I do not and I have lived in this area for over 60 years.

There are always reports in the newspapers about customers of the major banks who have lost money to scammers online.

Until recently the banks laid the blame on the ignorance of their customers.

Although the rules have changed, the banks are still finding loopholes to wriggle out their obligations.

It is no wonder that people of my age, and I am computer literate, do not want to be sucked in to a very creaky system.

Now that we are over blaming Covid and working from home for poor service, I think it is time that some of these large organisations took stock and mended some of their ways.

On another note, I am appalled that so many post office managers were subject to a very serious miscarriage of justice due to a computer programme malfunction.

Therefore, I will continue to be a thorn in the side of the bank and anyone else who tells me what to do for the best.

I have one reservation. one year ago I had a pacemaker fitted. I am forever grateful to the NHS staff at Poole Hospital.

That is why I am still alive and hopefully I will not need another nail in my coffin just yet.
