          I was approached in January by the Federation of Small Businesses. I was initially interested because membership would have got me free banking.

          But then I discovered the free banking was provided by the Co-op. When their salesman called me back, I told him, “There is no way I would consider entrusting my money to an organisation that thinks it’s a great idea to appoint a drug addict with no experience of banking as its chairman.”

          The salesman didn’t even bother arguing. I think it wasn’t the first time he’d heard that objection!

        He just stirred his tea.

        Then got onto the subject of war profits, and introduced him to this new CASH scheme to prop up the UK pension market at a guaranteed 10% return to him – if he didn’t ask for the money back – ever.
