Gresham College: Prof. Richard Harvey – Digital State: #5/6 – Cashless Society


A great lecture by Richard Harvey

About this series – Digital State

Almost every aspect of taxpayer services is being transformed by technology. In this series of lectures we will look at the current state of the art, the future and what it means for our tax bill and the services we expect.

About this lecture

Money may well make world go round but cash is surely an encumbrance we can do without. What does a cashless society look like? What is the technology behind the digital economy and the new forms of currency and money? 

Your bank doubtless provides an app for accessing your account but, in the future will it provide an API so you can write your own payment algorithms?

Antisemitism in Labour

Source: 7 Best Podcasts On UK Politics

One of the most annoying things about being busy is I hardly ever feel like I have the time and space to sit down and read (so long as the words aren’t on my phone screen.) There’s so many awesome publications dedicated to news and comment on UK politics and The New Statesman is one of the best. In this podcast, political editor Stephen Bush and Helen Lewis are joined by a whole host of other guests and presenters to get to the bottom of what’s going on. A super easy listen and very chatty in tone, The New Statesman Podcast is the perfect companion to the gym if you want to work out your mind as well as your body.

This Episode

A freak thunderstorm hits Benidorm, leaving most of the apartments in the Solana flooded and wrecked. Meanwhile, emotions run high for Janice when Johnny Neptune, an old flame, appears at the Solana. Gavin and Kenneth are in for a shock from Donald and Jacqueline, whilst Michael is in love.


Benidorm is a British sitcom written and created by Derren Litten and produced by Tiger Aspect for ITV that aired for ten series from 1 February 2007 until 2 May 2018. The series features an ensemble cast of holiday makers and staff at the Solana all-inclusive hotel in Benidorm, Spain over the course of a week each year.

The series first aired on 1 February 2007. Critically acclaimed, Benidorm has received two National Television Awards[1][2] and nominations at the British Comedy Awards[3] and BAFTAs.[4]

On 5 July 2018, series creator and writer Derren Litten confirmed that series 10 would be the last.[5]Benidorm Live, a stage adaption written by Litten, was announced with 250 shows scheduled in theatres across the United Kingdom and Ireland MORE AT LINK

Series 1

Series 1 introduced the main characters, the Garvey family: parents Mick (Steve Pemberton) and Janice (Siobhan Finneran), teenage daughter Chantelle (‘Telle’ – Hannah Hobley) and seven-year-old son Michael (Oliver Stokes). They are on their first holiday abroad, paid for by Janice’s mother – the sun-worshipping, chain-smoking Madge (Sheila Reid), who doesn’t have a kind word for anyone.

Jacqueline (Janine Duvitski) and Donald (Kenny Ireland) have been coming to Benidorm for twenty years and are enthusiastic, middle-aged swingers. Kate (Abigail Cruttenden) and Martin Weedon (Nicholas Burns) are going through a rough patch during their third year of marriage. Within seconds of arriving, they realise that the Solana is the worst place for them to make a fresh start.

Geoff Maltby (Johnny Vegas), who calls himself ‘The Oracle’, has an irritating computer-like knowledge of trivia, he claims to be the Lancashire pub quiz champion, and is prone to fits of competitive behaviour; he has always come on holiday with his mother, Noreen (Elsie Kelly). Gavin (Hugh Sachs) and Troy (Paul Bazely) are on their first holiday together after setting up a successful hair salon. They consider themselves superior to the other guests but are happy enough to get drunk and snigger at them; later in the series, their relationship hits rock bottom when Troy is caught with another series regular.

Also introduced in Series 1 are barman Mateo (Jake Canuso), who flirts with anything that breathes, and Janey (Crissy Rock), the hotel manager and cabaret M.C. at Neptune’s bar. Guest cast members include Ella Kenion as a fake fee-collector who cons the Garveys out of money at the beach – but who is caught when she turns up at Neptune’s; and Niky Wardley, playing Kelly, Mateo’s ex-love
