I posted the following on Monzo’s forum and they immediately removed it.
Ah well. I’m hoping this forum will not be so censorious, and might consider discussing both the positives and negatives of U.K. banks.
Could it be that the person that runs the Monzo account has gone rogue and is using it to further their own politics?
Or is the bank taking an official stance on this?
I really resent Monzo using Twitter to endorse the book “why I’m no longer talking to white people about race” - this is nasty divisive rhetoric, pure and simple.
An isolated incident on the other side of the Atlantic should not be a prompt Monzo to make the implicit suggestion that white people in the U.K. are racist.
The police officer in question is being charged with murder, so the petition (which Monzo just endorsed) trying to get him sacked is moot in any case.
Why is a bank indulging in such student union activities?
Yes we know Monzo is staffed by young idealistic leftwing types looking for a cause to get behind, but could they please give the rest of us a break and focus on their day job?
