Bank resistance in the UK seemd bad before this, but it would appear worse keeps coming.

Actually it would appear we seem to be on all the steps similiarly, which is confusing.

This is fucking pathetic. What is the solution? p2p bitcoin exchange. There can be no other way, if you centralise the exchange of money then the banks can't shut you down.

Just thinking aloud here....

Imagine if you had a piece of software which could interface with an online bank account. Imagine if you had a 20 thousand people run this piece of software and connected it to a new bank account.

Now you tie it all together and you have a p2p banking node. the more nodes the better, payments would be spread around to reduce the risk of a single node going rogue.

Yeah just some alcohol induced fantasies....

The part about politicians and lawmakers being silent is true. There should have been some hearings or debates in a few countries now.

Possible reasons: numerous.

besides Iceland, which government can afford to make decisions against it's banks?

Alright... everyone ready for the Bitcoin Banking Killer app?

Network! So do you have Kijiji in the UK or a similar free classified?

start advertising your bitcoins, exchange them for services and goods, Cash too.

Keep it legal, pay your taxes. Give Ceasar what is Ceasars if your exchanging bitcoins for Cash. We do not want to attract the authorities wrath they'll say we are laundering money.

Get friendly with fellow Bitcoin enthusiasts, form a club, let people know your a market force to be reconned with, but don't brag... that always gets people in trouble.

Send scouts out to scour the local communities for places that will accept Bitcoin, share the info, map the places that are accepting them and monitor the acceptance of them in your local area. A friendly face willing to answer questions is a great way to win people over... do not attempt to sell them the idea, only answer questions they ask, it'll make them curious.

Check your local laws, get informed, keep an eye out for one another, setup a news reader like Omea reader to monitor any relevant news in your community or country.

  http://www.jetbrains.com/omea/download/

keep your focus, do not attempt to get anyone's attention, simply make your purchases do the talking for you, gain the trust and support of your community by rewarding businesses that accept Bitcoin.

A distributed united front, driven by noble ideals and respect can out-think and out-maneuver any centralized system intent on intimidating and imposing it's ideals over the population.

Democracy: government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.

If you think my efforts are worth something; I'll keep on keeping on.

People need to be able to buy bitcoins, easier the better. That is key to the long term growth of Bitcoin.

But for that, there needs to be willing sellers, and ones that might be willing to sell large amounts.  Locally there could be an issue of where to do the exchange - and dealing with (potentially) large sums of cash might be a hinderance.  I know I wouldn't trade in a large amount of cash unless it was in a public venue, and I had my firearm on me for protection. 
 
If someone had a lot, they may be able to open a brick-and-mortar shop or something, with proper bullet-proof glass, etc.  Right now the exchanges (and banks) have us by the balls unless you're willing to trade small amounts. Sad

Yeah, and banks have good reasons, too. They are scared, because bitcoin IS replacing them.

I think it's amusing to think that, for years the manufacturing sector has been slowly automated, now the fat cats at the top know it is a two way street; It was only a matter
of time before someone figured out how to automate their jobs.
