Just had a loon on the phone with a west Central Belt accent telling me that under new government rules I could qualify for a new solar system. I told him I'm quite happy with the present 9 planet arrangement that we all find so useful.
This observer is registered with the TPS (Telephone Preference Service) so theoretically we shouldn't get such calls but there has been a spate recently of calls that seem to be coming from within the UK. You can make a complaint but you have to provide some information and that means prolonging the call and trying to get a few details.
Surely politicians could get it together to make it totally illegal for anyone to make unsolicited phone calls to anyone else in an effort to sell goods and services. If we need such things we can ring and ask for them ourselves. Surely the digital technology that is available to the telephone companies should be able to detect who is making such unwanted calls and simply cut off their phone line? That goes for callers from overseas too that try and help you sort out your Computer too - couldn't they just be blocked?
