  • Can't you set up a standing order? And yes, it cost me less than GBP20 to transfer money to the antipode of my home branch, so something is clearly odd in the state of Scotland.
    • Yes, I can set up a standing order once we have a regular amount and date. But right now I'm on a (very informal) short term agreement, with the option of going to something formal and long term if I like it, so right now payment isn't regular enough to have a standing order for it.

      And yes, I agree that something is very wrong. I assume that a (regular UK bank clearing play with your money on the money markets rip-off) 3 day service exists. It's just that they don't want to offer me it over the counter. Hmm, maybe that's where the Underpants Gnomes got their plan from:

      Day 1
      Money leaves your account
      Day 2
      ???
      Day 3
      Profit! oops, how did that happen? We were just moving your money from A to B.
