Here we go again...

Another gem from the FSA here.

And just in case you'd like to see it on here...

I can not tell you in how many ways this sort of thing incenses me. OK, I'll try.

1. All the herberts as speakers are the same herberts who got us into this mess. How the fuck are they in any way to be trusted to get us out of it.

2. The title. 'Ensuring a sustainable mortgage market for the future'. Gawd Almighty. The answer is simple. It does not need a conference. It needs two things. Sound money, and the Market.

3. And why haven't they invited a bloke like me to speak? We know more about what works and what is right and wrong then any of these smug gits.

4. The price. For me £395 plus VAT is a lot of money. Plus I lose a days work.

But it's a nice day out of the office for the Herberts....This isn't even a talking shop, they are asking you to fund a nice day out for them at a top notch hotel.

The FSA has been a laughing stock for years and sadly this scene is repeated across the entire public sector.

The biggest problem with any conference like this is that anyone who might benefit from attending shouldn't be working in the field in the first place.

The only justifiable conferences for the FSA to run are to explain proposed new regulations. Such conferences benefit both parties because those at the coal face have the opportunity to ask questions to clarify uncertainties and those responsible for the regulations get to hear first-hand of potential practical snags.
