    Many of those rip-offs are historical ones that have been going on for a very long time and yet the watchdogs that are supposed to protect us from rip-offs such as these either don't want to or they just don't have the powers.

    It appears that both self regulation and allowing the free market it's head is far more important than protecting the consumers, as far as many governments are concerned.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly there Zath'.

    If the care of the consumer is left to the mercies of the marketeers and the free market itself, with only self-regulation keeping them right, we will continue to suffer under their greed and their drive for profits at all costs.

    Margaret Thatcher once said that "Greed is good", and that just above covers it all as far as I am concerned.

    It is good to keep these attacks to the forefront of our minds and ROB does this very well.

    Until the British people get off their coolective butts and refuse to pay, we will continue to get ripped off.

    Hi HG, it' lovely to hear from you again ! I love you

    Yes, my dear, you are dead right that in the past the British consumers were either uninterested or just too damned lazy to get of their behinds and complain.

    I am glad to report that this strange habit of the Brits has finally changed.

    Please look at the internal link I published here on ROB explaining about this.

    Find the link HERE
