All very well but "your fellow professionals" are well aware the rogue trader tag does not relate or apply to them. All us professionals that actually "trade" are well aware of what the term actually refers to and any honest trader that thinks it relates to them is either being misled by people who should equally know better or have misinterperated the message.

The rogue trader is a real and present threat to both honest traders and unsuspecting householders, ( especially the vulnerable ). Campaigning against them is wholly admirable, twisting that message for personal or misplaced reasons is either naive or damaging to the industry, ( I'm not sure which because the agenda os unclear at this point ).

If anyone disagrees with promoting good practice and driving out the rogue trader, ( mentioned once more for good measure )', I would be interested in their reasons why.

"All very well but "your fellow professionals" are well aware the rogue trader tag does not relate or apply to them."

Yes they do know that but the when the public read the statements made by a chairman of a national membership organisation they may be easily led into thinking that it applies to all gardeners who are not members of that organisation.

My agenda is clear: to promote good and honest landscapers and gardeners.

It's so easy (whether it's intentional or not) to be labelled something you are not.

I agree with Gary - we cannot ignore this issue. But I also acknowledge that Phil is trying to promote good honest landscapers and gardeners.
