FSA: banks must record and store client calls

The Financial Services Authority has told banks and other financial businesses that they must tape telephone calls with their clients - relating to orders for stocks and bonds and whatever else they're dealing in. The FSA reckons this will help it combat insider dealing and other market abuse. Files will have to be kept for six months.

This is all wonderful. But it won't have any impact on financial shamans and money mystics. How on earth is the FSA going to keep tabs on shamans who are constantly going into a trance and communing with the dead? And when I go on to the astral plane, how will the FSA have the slightest idea what I'm getting up to?

And that's why the banks love us shamans and mystics so much.
