Big Brother Watch Director Says Going Cashless Will Bring Terrible Consequences

The director of Big Brother Watch claimed today that a cashless society will bring terrible consequences.

Writing in today’s Telegraph, Silkie Carlo claims:

“..not only can governments, banks and tech companies monitor what you have earned and spent in a cashless world, they can preemptively control it too.”

We have already seen financial services companies take an interventionist approach to people’s spending.

There are now numerous examples of cancel culture driving digital wallets to be frozen – an early notable example was PayPal freezing WikiLeaks’ account in 2010.

Just months ago, the Canadian government froze bank accounts of people associated with the truckers’ “Freedom Convoy”, in an effort to quell the campaign against mandatory vaccines.

With digital currency, the question fast becomes not only who watches how you spend your money, nor even who controls how you spend it, but who actually owns it?”

She’s right of course. 12 months ago, PayPal deleted The Richie Allen Show account. I wasn’t consulted. An email from the company stated that I was in violation of its rules and that was that. When PayPal wouldn’t respond to my queries I complained to the Financial Conduct Authority.

The FCA  investigated my complaint but said they were powerless. Astonishingly, an anonymous third party had made a complaint to PayPal. The company promptly closed the account and kept £400 which belonged to the show.

It was never returned to me and my supporters were not reimbursed either. PayPal kept the money. That’s got to be theft, right?

There is nothing I can do about it. When I wrote about it last year, I was inundated with emails from folks telling me that it served me right and that it would teach me to be careful of what I said on the radio show. I know, right?

Yesterday, while running past Old Trafford’s East stand, I saw to my astonishment that Manchester United’s Megastore has gone cashless, permanently. I thought it was a measure left over from lockdown. A security guard told me that it was here to stay.

Cashless terrifies me. I’ve said time and again, when we go cashless, it is game over. They win.

It really is that simple.

Rich Tea Alien

I had an amusing, if somewhat depressing experience today that I’d thought I’d share, I know I’m not the only one….
I came in from doing some work to find my teenage boy on the sofa, staring at his phone… nothing out of the ordinary there.. He was huffing and puffing about something, and so, I enquired,
“Everything OK?”
“Grunt, I’m trying to send some money to my mate for petrol…”
“Oh” says I “why don’t you give him cash when you see him next?”
Eyes roll…”Dad, look, this is much easier, no one uses cash anymore”
*inject another short opinion piece about the dangers of cashless… more eyes rolling *
10 minutes later, after much more puffing and huffing, I hear him mutter under his breath
.. ‘oh great, now it’s timed me out… I’ll have to do all that again!’

So much easier. ???


Shocking. Of course there are no covid deaths because it doesn’t exist, only covid vaccine deaths.


I’m puzzled that Richie would be inundated with negative e mails if he wrote about this on here! Surely the vast majority of people who listen to the show and contribute to this site are fully behind him, otherwise why are they here? It makes no sense unless he wrote about it somewhere else.


The amount of data that the government agencies have from our “smart” spy phones is horrific and almost all encompassing. Thus the elimination of cash and the implementation of a CBDC (I have not lost sight of the connotations of the first three letters of the CBD oil acronym which may indeed be deliberate to confuse the masses of the alleged innocuousness – sorry got dizzy with the upside down u’s that looked like n’s when spelling that) is Tyranny on steroids.

Yes, I hear you screaming over the keyboards, bitcoin, ethereum and all the other trendy decentralized cryptocurrencies will save us all. There are some problems with crypto, namely that it is dependent on the internet (Thought experiment, imagine if your stocks in crypto were tanking and you were unable to dump the stocks as there is a network outage or even a smart wallet virus (possibly on purpose) your stocks would be worthless. Another example is when bitcoin took a tumble when China banned it.
Also all that the powers that be need to vilify a cryptocurrency would be stage a false flag event or terrorist plot involving arms or materials bought with crypto that were used in the act for the government to declare that such and such a crypto is banned because Manchurian candidate used said crypto to carry out the crime. (I do not take credit for that thought as it was Harry Vox who suggested that possiblity or scenario.)

Bringing a Chinese Social Credit Score to a western dumbocracy near you (dumbocracy – every four years the slaves/tax payers/working class vote for a different slave master, the colour of ties change but the agenda of tyrannical communism/ neo feudalism/ great reset (cf Great Leap Forward)) marches on. Websearch “the Jones Plantation” by Larken Rose for an illustration of the fallacy of voting.

Effectively, we are all slaves to the bank* (well apart from the families and benefactors thereof). Perhaps the CBDC or digital slave vouchers may be promoted as greener for the environment as they do not have go through the inconvenience of printing and or minting the money (credit which is just an entry on a ledger in a bankrupt state) hence the need for the constant erecting (sorry couldn’t help myself there) of 5G (6G coming soon with more radiation!) towers every quarter of a mile in urban areas to monitor, store, track and survey everybody’s interactions, transactions, associations, movements, communications and personal data. In short, the complete loss of privacy as our overlords (banking cartels, davos higher ups, bilderberger directors) decide what is best for us.

*Unless you are self sufficient, off the grid, Amish/Mennonite, have the ability, tenacity, property and land to farm your own food, build your own houses, not rely on the government in any way shape or form to dictate where you live, what you eat and what you do.


Going cashless is exactly that (no cash for anyone that dare (or even attempt to) criticize, protest or disprove the government or those really in power.) We have but ourselves to blame for the installation of digital slavery via a Chinese Social Credit Score with CBDC.


The same problems you give to Bitcoin and Ethereum also apply to social crediting, 5G, 6G, they are all dependent on having a connection.

Artificial intelligence is useless without a connection, ask the Lawn Mower Man. 

I thought CBDC’s was similar to CBeebies, children’s telievision, ha,ha, would be more appropriate.

Let me tell you a real horror story, your all going to die, one by one but that’s always been how it works even for them, waiting round to die.

GEORGIA GUIDESTONES: “Maintain Humanity Under 500,000,000 in Perpetual Balance with Nature”. Wiki. According to who? The same liars, who tell about global warming, climate change rubbish, more like climate freezing looking at 200,000 year climate cycles. As well as many other catastrophes, massive solar flairs, asteroid’s, earth impacts, that could happen and historically do happen as well as cycle round again. Then there is tectonic plate locking, which seems to be happening right now, tectonic plates jam and get stuck, it usually means that when they do move, which they always do, it comes with much bigger volcanic earth moving disruption, Los Angeles might be reunited soon, I can’t say more because nobody actually knows. The plates have possibly locked because Putin has been draining the lubricant out, just kidding. Abiotic oil and gas, is not made from dead organisms. It could be true if it is as speculated that Abiotic oil and gas are part of the tectonic plate movement, acting as a lubricant.

Everything that comes from human beings is lies in one form or another at best just story’s. “It could be argued that ‘reality’ is nothing more than a landscape of stories/narratives. Ones that we tell ourselves, tell among ourselves, and are told to us.” Craig June 2, 2022.

GEORGIA GUIDESTONES: “Maintain Humanity Under 500,000,000 in Perpetual Balance with Nature”. Wiki.

“The United Nations member states are the 193 sovereign states”, according to Wiki but how could they really be sovereign if they have agreed to be part of the big UN club, it’s a fecking joke.

Anyway, divide 500 million by 163 and you get 3.6 million. That is possibly the real target for these so called sovereign nations. Britain had 66 million people not so long ago and if you take 3.6 million from 66 million the result is 62.9 million, possibly that is the number of people that need to die in Britain.

The government liars have said that 80% of the adult population have been jabbed so that’s a big number of people potentially gone by 2030. Then food shortages have not happened yet but it won’t be long and don’t expect any help from the government they have not helped you so far. That is when the same people who have gone along with all this madness, trying to protect their little bit of wealth are going to realise it’s their turn.

All what you see going up, like 5G and stuff is not for you, it is to make sure you don’t come back or breed enough to mean anything like a threat to them, a remote control killing machine built with your money, time and love.

That’s what I think but I have left a lot out and I hope I am wrong, I am mad anyway according to those around me.


Dear Nev,

You are not mad. Far from it. Regrettably we live in a madhouse where the masses are under this delusion of identity politics, social engineering using subtle and blatant methods of control. eg. social nudging, constant state of fear via the increased costs of living, relative poverty (which is one of the main drivers of crime), social anxiety syndrome in particular the youth being conditioned into conformity by this gender ambiguity as well as the trendy marxist BLM movement and the Greta Green cultists.

Dividing and conquering has been with humanity for millennia however Mattias Desmet had highlighted the term Mass Formation Psychosis as a more suitable term – my interpretation (I could be wrong, I could be right but I am not Johnny Rotten)

As the UK stumbles out of the covid narrative as the partygate reporters forget to ask the question that Bojo and co were not afraid of a virus that carries a measuring tape, holds a passport and learnt Greek because the so called virus wasn’t that serious or even exists, (I am aware that the eugenics agenda is on a slight time out) then we have the Ukrainian proxy war crisis (but god forbid the media mention globalist shills such as Victoria Nuland and her involvement with the Maidan Revolution of 2014, Ihor Kolomoyskyi who practically astro-turfed Zelensky into power – as long as Operation Beluga is still ongoing Russia = bad guy narrative), food/ baby formula shortages, food production warehouses and supply chain sabotage, J Depp’s testimony of Amber Heard throwing her feces at him (brings a whole new meaning to the term dumping him/her), the monkey pox outbreak (where is Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo and Morgan Freeman to save us? Talk about predictive programming / or projective ideation, that Bill Gates planning another virus outbreak who’d have known? <sarcasm>), then a brief respite as the UK turns the virtue signalling to 11 by worshiping qe2 platinum jubilee bank holiday weekend ie free concerts for the royal following retards.

I wonder what manufactured crisis the media will be reporting on this Tuesday? Get your monkey pox vaccine and be a martyr for big Pharma, a fake alien invasion (Operation Bluebeam), not enough Twix/Mars bars in the local supermarkets, another political scandal involving sex or corruption or both. Who knows? (Well the W.H.O. might know.)

Glad you pointed out the Georgia guide-stones as many of masses are not aware of such a wanton monument to the proposed tyranny.

It’s a small wonder that the public aren’t dying off sooner as we are being poisoned by fluoride in our drinking water, NHS being destroyed from the Thatcher period, bed capacity reduced to 160,000 in 2020 (240,000 in the year 2000) – (a shortfall of 80,000 beds in two decades!) and operating on a skeleton staff, poisoning of our foods via industrial seed pressed oils, frankenfoods/GMOS, chemtrails/geo engineering in the sky, constantly irradiated by 5G+ and to top it off masses of sheeple were queuing up for the clotshot.

The prior paragraph is evidence that the government hates/despises the masses. Yet still millions of deluded people still think that putting an “X” on a ballot changes anything.

“Everybody Knows”

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded

Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed

Everybody knows that the war is over

Everybody knows the good guys lost

Everybody knows the fight was fixed

The poor stay poor, the rich get rich

That’s how it goes

Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking

Everybody knows that the captain lied

Everybody got this broken feeling

Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets

Everybody wants a box of chocolates

And a long stem rose

Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby

Everybody knows that you really do

Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful

Ah give or take a night or two

Everybody knows you’ve been discreet

But there were so many people you just had to meet

Without your clothes

And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows

That’s how it goes

Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows

That’s how it goes

Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it’s now or never

Everybody knows that it’s me or you

And everybody knows that you live forever

Ah when you’ve done a line or two

Everybody knows the deal is rotten

Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton

For your ribbons and bows

And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming

Everybody knows that it’s moving fast

Everybody knows that the naked man and woman

Are just a shining artifact of the past

Everybody knows the scene is dead

But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed

That will disclose

What everybody knows

And everybody knows that you’re in trouble

Everybody knows what you’ve been through

From the bloody cross on top of Calvary

To the beach of Malibu

Everybody knows it’s coming apart

Take one last look at this Sacred Heart

Before it blows

And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows

That’s how it goes

Everybody knows

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows

That’s how it goes

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

Writer(s): Cohen Leonard, Robinson Sharon


Thank you for your thought’s, I hope Leonard Cohen is wrong and humanity is close to waking up.


PS, I forget to thank you for not thinking I am mad, thank you for that..


No worries Nev. The powers that be (henchmen/women) agents and proxies are pushing the masses to clown-world communism so it would appear that those calling out the hypocrisy of recent events and narratives are labelled as anti-vaxxers, Russian collaborators, traitors to the state, unpatriotic objectors etc. Only demonstrates the Mass Formation Psychosis (deliberate brainwashing of the masses) tactics to avoid questioning the hypocrisy.

It is quite funny that the powers that be feel the need to ban memes which has been a good countermeasure to the constant government narratives. An example of this backfiring is the implosion of the USA’s ministry of truth (Disinformation Governance Board) headed by Nina Jankowicz. ie the governments version of snopes, fullfacts etc that are as reliable as a chocolate kettle.

I am usually labelled a conspiracy theorist which is a CIA term to avoid any form of debate. (With regard to the JFK assassination.) But throughout the covid psy-op many theories were proven to be correct. Call me what you like, just don’t call me late for dinner.

Concerning Leonard Cohen, if we have a defeatist attitude then the powers that be have already won (Not that I am critical of Leonard Cohen’s body of work). One could even argue that the music industry plays a key role in the placating of the masses. e.g. subliminal imagery and audio, occult symbology. Club 27 etc.

Have you checked out the song “Your government loves you” via William Wallace Protest Songs? via

Take solace in the fact that there is a tipping point when the masses stir against the oppression via rebellion or revolution. It is not a question of if but when. cf the French Revolution, ropes don’t cost much and lamp-posts don’t need to be retro-fitted. An observation not a suggestion before the thought police come a knocking.

As Dr Vernon Coleman would say, “You are not alone. More and more people are waking up and when they are awake they never fall asleep again, avoid mass media, distrust the government and fight the lies”


Hi Aldo, yeah I can see that you understand what is happening and perhaps we don’t understand it in the same way but we do both understand, it seems. Thank you and all the very best.

Urban Fox

Good words. I know the song, but like many songs, never really listened to the words before.

Scott G

Don’t want to sound pedantic, Aldo, but Desmet gets a bee in his bonnet about ‘psychosis’ being added to his term ‘Mass Formation’.

Good post by the way. Watching the young’ns wave their phones around in place of paying cash, and thus being complicit in building their own – and our – open air prison makes me feel sick.

I’m not at all optimistic for the future – the convenience of contactless far outweighs the coming tyranny for most people.
I hope most here have led a good life, free to travel where they wished. Now is the time, if at all possible, to make plans to get out of any cities and look after yourself and immediate family. A back to basic life in the country as free from all the bs as possible is probably the best you can hope for.


Dear Scott G,

Cheers for the observation of Desmet regarding the term psychosis after Mass Formation. I was not aware of that.

Another term may be the manufacturing of consent, or Orwell’s groupthink, cf Pavlovs Dog experiment being applied to humans with a bit of Skinner’s pigeons, Solomon Aschs conformity experiments and Milgram’s experiment. Also Edward Louis Bernays work can not be under estimated in this field.

It may be argued that this phenomena is certainly not a new tactic by propagandists. There’s many examples in history where false flags have been spun via intelligence agencies in conjunction with corporate owned media to influence the masses e.g. the Gulf of Tonkin “Incident” (result the VIetnam War), the Nayirah testimony (Gulf War), the surviving crew of the USS Liberty, weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the former and the latter examples proves that you don’t even need the statements to be true to achieve the problem -> reaction -> solution. All you need is the perception of a problem via media sources to be successful, if enough narrative presenters sing from the same song sheet. (Goebells would be proud.)

We only have to point out the obvious flaws in the narrative of the covid psy-op to show that the so called scientists SAGE, CDC and WHO are unwilling and/or absent to be debated for even the most basic of questions.

I do feel sorry for the younger generation that are dopamine addicted to their “smart”-phones via social surveillance media and using contact-less payments. Regrettably there is no encryption on the NFC cards that they use to pay which is a huge security issue.

Addressing your wish to get out of the city and return to a less complicated life (which is commendable) may be problematic as Agenda 2030 would keep such rural zones as being off limits to the masses or vassals of the state. Plus the government can re-assign a property as being non green or non carbon neutral or some other nonsense to kick you out of your property with all this global warming or climate change fiasco.

You may even end up like John Rambo on the lam in the countryside but I jest.

But I do take on board the fact that we as a society need to have limited or zero interactions with the government and form our own systems of communications, water/sanitation, energy production, food production, clothing manufacturing, house building, health infrastructures and proper education.

As Gerald Celente keeps stating, “When people have nothing to lose, they lose it” and as such I expect that there will be a massive revolution or rebellion.

Lastly, it is good know that there are still people that still have the ability to critically think and do as such.

Best Regards from Aldo

sic semper tyrannis


Now there’s your bed, lie down please.

It’s a shame that our media haven’t focussed their attentions on the very real threats of digitalisation (among which are IDs and a cashless economy) to the degree they have focussed attentions on the largely empty threats of Brexit, terrorism, and pandemics.
Twenty years ago I was reading relatively small journal articles warning about implantable chips, digital IDs, and digital currencies that would interlink and control every aspect of our lives.
I even tried to explain this to people around me, but was almost completely dismissed. A few even told me I had been watching too many X-Files, unable to comprehend that the stories of that series were in large based on documented evidence.
All too often, people dismiss fiction as ‘make believe’, while simultaneously believing fiction presented as ‘fact’.

I worked out a long time ago that we’re fecked.


I agree and have had much the same issues, I was taught to look before you leap and called a miserable fecker because I practised. I stopped practising and then got called mad, you can’t win so I stopped trying. What I see is simple, the love of money is the root of all evil. Get people loving money and they will all be evil. We now live in a world where people will take experimental jabs for fear of losing their money, position, holidays, anything really and they will march willingly into a cage if you put their money in it. Money has no intrinsic value, zero, it is just counting numbers to keep score of what you don’t have, when you don’t have anything anyway. You bring nothing to this place only yourself and take nothing when you leave not even your body, it all goes back in the box for the next player when you die, simples.

If you say your fecked then I can guarantee your fecked because you have already decided. Stop watching the X-Files, lol.

Robert Klinck

The love of money is the root of all evil, but in a money economy you can’t go without it–so what is “love”? The problem is that the ownership of money is claimed by the tiny minority who create it out of nothing through the mechanism of issuing loans. Any population that accepts such a preposterous arrangement hardly deserves to be recognized as a society, because it can’t assert even the most fundamental common interest. The debt/taxation system that has been contrived to protect and reinforce this money-creation monopoly is perverse in every respect.


Yip I can’t disagree with you in essence but…

“The Love of money”, what is it?

I can’t answer that because it is subjective and it matters not because I translate it to be a metaphor that means greed for that which you can never own. Going deeper, it is the love of materialism, material goods, ownership, power, wealth, advantage, etc. The love of competition rather than cooperation.

Just because people are gullible, made gullible, encouraged at every opportunity, with the love of money, it does not mean they are worthless or deserve to be treated as such. Most people around me have been tested and jabbed so I don’t hold much hope for them but I actually do still hope regardless.

All the best.


That’s shocking that people sent those e-mails to Richie telling him to watch what he says. It looks like they’ve capitulated already. PayPal was easy and convenient but I stopped using them when they started censoring. A payment platform should be just that not involving themselves in what opinions their customers hold. The problem is that the psychopaths have been buying into a lot of companies purely to control our lives. For example George Soros is a major shareholder of PayPal.


Some thing people have forgotten, if you don’t have it and have given it to someone else then they have it. Possession is nine tenths of the law.


Said it before and will say it again…I’m just praying for an EMP burst from the sun to wipe all this tyrannical BS off the map. I’d rather live in the world of Mad Max than Airstrip One of 1984.


Well I hope your looking forward to living in a cave because mad max is only a film, lol.
No offence intended.
We might soon be facing much more than an EMP, like massive global volcanic disturbance, be careful what you wish for.
No offence intended.


What started out as a trickle under the cover of Covid and cash somehow being dirty and infected has is now becoming a torrent. I was in Crystal Palace Park in London last weekend and no venues for food, coffee or ice cream where accepting cash. I refused to go cashless and just left but its a losing battle as most of the public simply comply and go along with it just like all of the nonsense Covid restrictions. I wish people would raise their vision and see just what a tyranny is being implemented behind this but nope, absolutely no chance. You’ve only to look at the amount of online banks such as Monzo that have popped up over the last few years who will open an account for anyone with pretty much no questions asked no matter how bad your financial record. If you’ve got to go cashless then someone has to provide banking services for the people who the regular banks wouldn’t touch with a barge pole. This is all part of the WEF’s great plan.


Many people will not only not do any research into what is happening themselves but they are not willing to look at, read or listen to any information that you hand to them on a plate. This to me is perverse because I would always be willing to have a look even if ultimately I didn’t agree with it.


Such is the nature of blind belief.
