Comment of the week: Thanks for your support

For those who have supported me, Thank you, For those that haven’t, I respect your right to express your views.

All I I would say, is come and share a week with me and try and earn, learn and sometimes get through the day – you would change your mind, I guarantee it.

We all have a bad situation story I’m sure. All I’ve ever wanted to do is quietly make my own way supporting my kids and being a caring IFA.

Positive Solutions has known for six years about my historical medical situation since birth – a note goes in with every business submission, as I am allowed more time than the usual deadlines.

It is just when you look at this issue in depth, as I am beginning to do, there seems to be issues not thought through.

I may now be yesterday’s news, but this I believe is against the fair treatment of potentially lots of IFAs.

Hence sticking my head above the parapet for once and risking the consequences. My thanks to the reporter Samuel Dale for listening to me.
