For hands that dish out fines….

So the PIA is to clean up all those non-pri ority cases and land the indus try with a bill of anything up to £11bn for the pension misselling scandal. Ouch.

We should have known that "Operation Clean Hands" was on the cards by the fact that the PIA seems to have linked up with soap sud company Fairy.

Could there have been a subliminal message in this ad, which appeared in The Mirror days before the announcement? Then again, the PIA in its heavy-handed way would have used 400 bottles, stockpiling half of them and passing on the cost to members.

Presumably, the PIA will no longer need to indulge in such messy money-raising stunts with all the extra wedge it can pocket for those inevitable fines it will hand out for non-priority cases. You have been warned.
