An Open Letter to the Halifax Bank

Dear Howard Brown*,

I am writing to ask you to cease your current adverts which are sung to the tune of a Big Brovaz song. I believe it's called "Who Gives You Extra" or "Halifax Gives You More" or something like that.

My reason for this is that it seems to breach the Trade Descriptions Act of 1968. You assert that Halifax gives you 'extra', yet when I used one of your cashpoint facilities today it gave me no more than the £20 which I had indicated I wanted.

Considering the lack of any extra forthcoming from this machine, would you either a) fix this particular machine as it does not comply with your company philosophy or b) get rid of those adverts, which appear to be based on a blatant lie (whilst also being highly annoying).

Compensation in the form of the promised 'extra' will be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Christopher Doidge Esq.
