"From 7th September 2009 we will be changing the price for non automated debit entries from 69p to 79p.

These are charges for cheques you write and manual payments made to 3rd parties in branch or through a telephony adviser. The new price will show on your quarterly charges statement in December 2009."

Somebody do the maths.

Interest rates are currently- ??

Cost of living currently- ??

its because the first class stamp has gone up.

every cheque you write has to be cleared, and it is personally delivered to the post box by a clerk, and posted first class to the clearing house, where it arrives next day, in its own envelope.

this envelope is carefully opened and the cheque is examined and posted again, first class, in a new envelope to the issuing bank.

next day the issung bank (yours) open the envelope carefully and welcome the now well travelled chequeback home, where it is honoured to be cleared.

now a carefully handwritten letter is sent back first class to the clearing house confirming safe receipt of the cheque, now resting in place at home.

this arrives next day and the clearing house now carefully updates its ledgers and writes a new letter to the cheque recipients bank confirming that the funds will be clear.

this arrives next day (5 days) and the cheque you wrote is cleared into the recipients account.

for 79p, its hard to grumble.

It's for your own good.

The banks need to make profits - and fast - so they can pay you when you want to withdraw your savings.

So cheques aside, if I pay someone some money over the counter in a branch or via telephone banking, I'm going to be charged for it? As a personal customer when they're already getting to invest my money that I have deposited with them?

I should cocoa Mr. Barclayman.
