I’m not going to name the bank that refused my business. Though I’d like to know what right a bank has to decide what type of legal business you can run. I like to think that I’m a reasonable person. I wouldn’t expect to open an account for the proceeds of drugs prostitution gun running or supplying arms to Iran. Which incidentallyI don’t do. I want an account where I can deposit the meagre earnings from a few old editions of Janus and Kane.
If my current application fails I shall approach a well known high street supermarket chain who also offer banking facilities. If I’m declined an account I shall politely inform them that they sell Fifty Shades of Grey. A book that contains spanking bondage and riding crops. Along with much more perverse books including The Secret Life of A Submissive by Sarah K and Pauline Reage’s classic The Story of O’. I will point out to these institutions that consider themselves to be whiter than white of what is contained within the covers of The Bible, rape and incest. Would they dare close a book shop’s account for daring to sell the Bible? The answer of course is no.
Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders sang ”Bad Boys Get Spanked” and it would be quite befitting to amend the lyrics for certain members of the establishment though I don’t think that would go down too well. Though I could always enlist the help of some rather persuasive female friends of mine who would surely make them realise the error of their ways.
