Dump the FSA for independent advice on non-prime loans

With the MMR, the regulator is preventing squeaky clean, well-informed, self-employed applicants from releasing equity from their homes unless they can prove their income. There are plenty of other examples of borrowers who will be shut out.

If we want a society where nobody takes responsibility for their own actions the FSA is doing its bit to get us there sooner.

Replace the FSA with independent legal advice for all non-prime secured borrowings. Job done.
