"I have noticed the way that everybody now seems to use the word 'disappointed' precisely in the passive aggressive manner you point out. People using the word in this fashion really need to take a good, hard look at themselves and realise that they do not sound like Don Corleone from the Godfather, they sound like David Brent's tedious boss from the office."

"Anonymous cash has been a functioning solution for all of history, regardless of who issued it. But now it is government that is 'making a move' on the citizen's right to hold it. Government doesn't like anything to be out of its reach, and technology offers a method of control."
