Article from yesterday's +London Evening Standard 
When Nathaniel Popper walks into the Old Shoreditch Station café to talk about his book, Digital Gold: The Untold Story of Bitcoin, he points with embarrassment at the Bitcoin ATM that is mounted on the wall by the bar, its power cable hanging out sadly. His publicist has arranged for us to meet at the café specifically because it is one of the few London businesses (mainly out East) that accepts the currency. But Popper, a journalist for The New...

Coinbase are currently in discussions with the United Kingdom Financial Watchdogs about the potential of setting up a Bitcoin Exchange here.

In an interview with The Times the chief executive of the exchange platform Brian Armstrong said that the talks had been ongoing for “at least six months” and stated that talks so far have been “positive and moving in the right direction.”

Although when asked about a potential launch date Mr. Armstrong said he was “hesitant to avoid putting any measure” to it.

If Coinbase are successful in their talks with the Financial Watchdog in getting the green light to open an exchange here, to stand out from the other exchanges registered in the United Kingdom like Bitstamp and Coinfloor they will have to develop a working relationship with the banking industry which no exchange has been able to achieve for any more than a few months as of yet.

A faster payment service which goes from account to account and takes around a maximum of two hours to complete are an essential part of being able to make a difference to the UK exchange arena.

We have had this with the likes of Netagio and Coinfloor before but it didn’t last any more than a few months before the banking institutions involved withdrew their support.
While the United Kingdom seems to be leading the way globally in regards to digital currency regulation, we have yet to get a major exchange based here where you don’t have to use SEPA to transfer money to purchase your Bitcoin and trade. Coinbase looks to be on track to change all this.

Sadly as we’ve been unable to find a speaker in time, we’re going to cancel our March meetup. (The “regular” 1st Monday slot would have been March 2nd.)

However, we’ll announce April’s meetup next week. It will be worth the wait – stay tuned! :-)

No Bitcoin angle, but the article describes improvements in the way the Bank of England approves new banks, so we may see more competition in the market before too long.
The Durham-based lender hopes to offer products to customers later this year

My first article that I've had published in the bitcoin press :)  Although they edited a bit out that I feel was important.  That I've added to the comments.
Network growth has been steadily growing larger and stronger over the last two years. While many people only look at the value of bitcoin, they are failing to see the adoption rate. The bitcoin price may have dipped slightly recently, and the record all-time high price of $1,124 USD of late November 2013 may now seem …

Oh by the way all, the +SatoshiPoint bitcoin ATM at CellCity.  On Piccadilly right next door to The Piccadilly Taven.  Has now been set to two way.  So you can both buy and sell bitcoin for cash notes.

+Diadem Jewellery a lot of bitcoin'ers are also gold investment bugs too.  While physical gold in your possession is seen as the most useful to 'gold bugs'.   Maybe you could offer the trading of precious metal bullion coins.  As a potential sideline as I'm sure if people knew they could trade investment grade bullion coins for bitcoin.  It may attract you new customers.  Investment grade gold at 90% purity or above is traded VAT free in both the EU and US.

Please note – due to an administrative problem the domain bitcoinmanchester.org.uk is down, currently trying to resolve this Nominet but it may take a few days. Email is unfortunately offline too but you can still reach us here.

Thanks +Adam R. The problem isn't with the hosting, the problem is that I changed to Gandi account that owns the domain at the same time I changed address, so I had no proof of address to send them (even though the domain hasn't really changed owner!). I asked Smile / Co-op Bank to send me a statement but it has taken them so long (as always, sight) that the Nominet deadline passed first. I am not happy to say the very least!!! I hope it will get resolved soon.

Glad to hear you're getting something ready, we'll organise something for a future meetup!

Cheers
Ash
