I see that the FSA is going to ban cold-calling in respect of mortgage marketing.
Frankly, that is like telling the building industry that they are no longer allowed to mix concrete.
The FSA says that “this follows in line with EU regulations, etc”.
Do you know what I intend to do in relation to this absurd new law? I am going to do what the French and Italians do – which is to ignore it.
So what are the FSA going to do? Lock me up? I can hear the prosecution case now…”M'lud, this 60-year-old married father of two. This decorated ex-armed forces officer. This businessman and pillar of the community, with no past criminal record, took it into his mind to commit the heinous crime of making a telephone call while prospecting for new business.” (Gasps from the public gallery).
Come on you guys out there. Follow me on this one. Keep making the telephone calls. They can't throw us all in jail.
