HSBC Threatens to Close Accounts of Customers Who Refuse to ‘Mask-up’

Recently, 21WIRE has highlighted the highly credible, in-depth peer-reviewed scientific study out of Denmark, which proves beyond any doubt that masks do very little, if anything, to stop the transfer of viruses between humans. Despite the bountiful evidence on this issue, such studies on the efficacy and health side effects from masks have been routinely ignored by public health gurus in ‘pandemic’ policy leaders the UK and US. Why? Because the findings of these studies go against the government and media narrative.

This latest move to criminalize non-mask wearers by leading retail bank HSBC takes the pandemic ‘health and safety’ craze to new extremes – despite the fact that neither corporations, nor the government can provide any actual proof that the threat of COVID is somehow greater today than it was in March 2020, the groupthink on evidence-free policy decisions continue.

Are we now seeing the final steps of an extreme social engineering agenda being implemented?

The UK Mirror reports…

HSBC has issued a warning to customers as retailers step up coronavirus safety measures amid a further 1,243 deaths. The lender – which also owns First Direct and Marks & Spencer bank – said customers who break the law could forfeit their bank account.

Speaking to The Mirror, a spokesman said face masks are mandatory in all branches as per government guidelines.

Those who refuse to comply will be refused service and could have their bank accounts withdrawn.

Jackie Uhi, head of branch network, HSBC UK said: “Our branch colleagues are key workers, continuing to go to work in our branches every day so that customers who need them can access essential financial services.

“Sadly, some people are failing to protect themselves, our branch colleagues and other customers by refusing to wear a face covering inside our branches or observe social distancing.

“Our colleagues deserve respect and should not have to face violent or abusive behaviour. Consider whether you need to visit the branch or could manage your banking from the safety of your home via our digital channels.

“If you do visit us, please wear a face covering and maintain a safe distance from others. If individuals put themselves or our colleagues at risk, without a medical exemption, we reserve the right to withdraw their account”

The Mirror has also asked Santander, Barclays, Lloyds, Natwest and Nationwide for updated guidance and will update this story in due course.

The Post Office said customers must obey the law, but warned it will not be enforcing measures.

“Postmasters that they can ask a customer who is not wearing a facemask if they are medically exempt, but the customer is not required to provide medical proof if they do not have it with them when they visit a branch,” a spokesman said.

“Post Office will implement any updated guidance issued by the UK Government or Devolved Governments. At this stage, Post Office has not advised Postmasters to refuse entry to any customer that does not have a face mask.
