Next big thing is a small bank

Yes. I have found the next big thing. 

It’s a bank.
Or, should I say, it’s something to replace trust that people have lost in all banks. Every single one.
So, what’s the brand that could launch a bank – where folk would trust that it hasn’t derivatived-up the whole thing? Thames Water or Tesco?
Yer, but, also… it’s gotta be in there with the whole internet thing. You trust YOUR community. Because you don’t leg over your mates… which brings banking, for me, back to its roots (or the Building Society roots of mutual support)… with a new digital twist.
Can anyone help me with a banking licence?

    I’ve been thinking about this ever since i did my Economics ao level about a million years ago. It’s a great idea and it’ll be even better if it’s MOBILE!!!

    All the ingredients of a neat idea:

    Born of northern, co-operative, localist roots….. all the things that we are trying to pull together as ‘globalism’ loses its attraction as a place for savings or debt.

    Is there a way of linking your concept to the worthy [ but underused ]concept of credit unions.
