Charge less for lower service

I note the somewhat impolite letter recently from Filip Slipaczek. Filip is a well renowned IFA, probably most noted for his pomposity.

As a previous member of both Sofa and the LIA, might I point out that if: a: The PFS wants to provide a diminished service for some members, then it should charge them less in membership fees. Anything less is money under false pretences.

b: If we take Fillip’s last suggestion – a new organisation would mean that we could go back to the old regimes – yes, please.

I do not know why those who are dissatisfied bother to argue – membership is not compulsory. It is better to spend your money with Aifa, at least they are trying to look after your interests.
