No more cheques please

It’s high tech in the retail industry! No more cheques in Marks & Spencer stores from March 1st! I find it hard to imagine anyone paying for goods by cheque these days.

Business dealings seem to be different though. One of these days we’ll figure out a safe way of handing over our bank details to business partners without getting signed up for a monthly subscription to some charity like a certain Jeremy did a few weeks ago ..

Oh yeah, cheque is a check. I can never get my head around that. “Check” is a verb, not a noun!
