    The FCA should regulate, full stop, instead of merely creating endless new regulations that it then fails to enforce. Such endless new regulations are an unnecessary burden on the good guys and largely ignored by the cowboys. It’s so stupid, isn’t it?

  2. Seeing as online marketing has been used as the number one medium for financial promotions for many years, they (FCA) should have been regulating this 15 years ago !

    In its endeavours to make sure its make up in applied correctly, the FCA is late to everything, and the party is over !

  3. Bit like asking whether a greengrocer should sell lettuces!
