These bigots are going to run out of acceptable institutions soon, having been ‘forced’ to close accounts at Barclays in 2019 when it used a rainbow app icon
I suspect a lot of it is empty threats, although I would personally be happy for them to run out of options
Even better is the Halifax customer support telling customers that if they don’t like it, they can close there accounts down and leave
Yes, that’s what the prior 3 posts are about
Outraged article in the Dail Hate Mail* today. Swarms of people complaining on social media! 150 have said they will close their accounts!
150? Is nothing. Not even a drop in a drop in the ocean.
I don’t think Halifax are going to be at all bothered. Indeed, I don’t think society as a whole is bothered either. Just the small number of loud bigots.
(*Not mine, work copy, would prefer not to get it at all, but sometimes I flip through to torment myself/do the ‘know your enemy’ thing.)
150 say they will, I doubt 10% of those will.
Meanwhile the good PR for Halifax for doing this I’m sure will gain them more customers in the long run.
Daily Fail at its best
The Daily Mail: Read by people who hate life itself.
Ah the gift which keeps on giving, I almost forget these people exist until they pop up to speak some nonsense for a newspaper article.
Last night customer Caroline Ffiske, a former Conservative councillor, said: ‘It is incredibly rude for Halifax to say to customers if you don’t like it go away. It’s astonishing to have a bank behaving like a trans activist.’
The entitlement is off the charts.
Will also add, would love to see more banks behaving like trans activists. There’s so much hate and discrimination directed at that group of people that it isn’t enough to simply just be an ally now, we all need to be vocally supporting them.
“If you don’t like it, go away” is what more/most/all businesses should be saying.
James O’Brien having a lot of fun ripping into the Mail and imaginary Twitter complainers at the moment
I think it’s great. “If it irks you enough to strop off at us about it on Twitter and threaten to take your account elsewhere, eff off then and find a bank which shares your bigoted views.”
Oh they’re already debating on what banks will be safe from this on Twitter. Most of them are thinking of going for one with Saudi links
Quote retweet from HSBC Uk. Lets hope none of the people leaving Halifax switch to HSBC…
I reckon HSBC are already in the dog house with these folk for tweeting about their non-white and LGBTQ+ staff
Look who couldn’t help to get a word in
@Carlo1460 you’ve been spotted
Let us know what they say. Probably nothing
