Consumer loss

So Consumer Focus and the Office of Fair Trading are both to go. These are no small changes and show no indication that this Government has ideas on how it hopes to promote the UK as a home for competitive markets rather than as a shelter for dodgy dealing.

There is a great pamphlet by Philip Cullum from Consumer Focus out now on the exact difference between these two. http://www.consumerfocus.org.uk/assets/1/files/2010/03/Unleashing-the-new-consumer-power-WEB-version.pdf

We are all worse off without you.

One thought on “Consumer loss

  1. Agreed! Now that company directors owe a duty to their company stakeholders- who other than OFT and Consumer Focus could be persuasive in ensuring that this happens. I see a future with more TV programmes about Cowboy Builders and such like!
