Firstly many thanks to those who have responded to this thread so far, the numbers are encouraging.
We are coming up for two weeks since the first letters were sent out, have you received a response? If you have I would really like to know what the responses are. Of the limited number of responses I have seen so far 'positive' outweigh 'negative' which is good. A PM to me is probably the best way to communicate details since it wouldn't be sensible to name MP's in this thread.
Those of you who have seen the letter will know its purpose is twofold 1. To force the FCA to answer the difficult questions that they have so far studiously avoided 2. To increase your chances of seeing a satisfactory conclusion to this debacle
To those Col investors who haven't yet sent the letter (or made an official complaint) I would urge you to consider doing so. Research shows that where 'compensation' has been paid it is to those who have taken matters up officially. Andrew Bailey (head of FCA) reiterated this recently when he used the term 'case by case' when referring to compensation (not a direct reference to Col but shows that the policy applies) so whilst the group will continue to extract information such as that which was used to enable us to write the template we cannot do everything.
Any questions either add them to this thread or drop me a PM and I will do my best to answer.
