‘Horrified of Haddenham’ Garry May gets taken to the cleaners – and then quite literally put through the launderette’s washing machine
Earlier this week, we featured one of those “archaic idealists” who likes to hark back to the (supposed) glory days of the 1950s. Prolific man of letters Garry May of Haddenham, Buckinghamshire’s endearing support of piemen and postmen was clear, but his disdain with cash didn’t meet with the approval of all of The Telegraph’s fuddy-duddy followers.
In a missive, published Friday, one Ann Dashper remarked:
SIR – Garry May, who hopes to see the end of cash, has clearly never had to use a launderette.
The machines and dryers only take cash. He would not get far with a card.
Just as with marmalade at the Guardian earlier this year, we suspect ‘cash correspondence’ might go the same way. Like a run on the bank, let’s watch as this runs and runs during the continuing lockdown.
