This may have a tenuous technology angle, but we have written a story today as to when will cheques fade out completely (to celebrate its 350th birthday) and when will cash die out as we move to more contactless payment systems.

To celebrate the long history of the cheque our production editor thought it would be nice  to pull together a list of slang terms for a “Cheque”. I love cockney rhyming slang, so here are four I found. Any others please email them or add a comment.
