Whilst the Office of "Fair" Trading is desperately trying to change the

provided you abide by the rules you agreed to when you opened it, and the
amendments to those rules subsequently advised to you.

Only by it being cross subsidised by the people that do pay
fees.

It happens that such cross subsidy is (probably) illegal under

(If it is illegal) it is therefore incorrect to place the blame of
correcting this illegality on the messenger.
