The FSA's threat to force brokers to disclosecommission is an utter disgrace (News, 24 November). They do not know when to leave alone.

Where is the evidence for a conflict of interest? The FSA makes it up as it goes along.

It is just another case of how these mandarins keep themselves busy by making things up. Do any of these individuals know anything about running a business?

These people seem to just sit around discussing what interfering measure they can introduce next. The FSA should keep its grubby hands off. With all this madness it is threatening our very existence. Does it care?

It is time that the bodies supposedly representing brokers took a stand against this. They seem too happy to bend over backwards for the FSA. Why?

We brokers work hard and provide an essential service that is consistently undervalued and undermined.
