This amuses muchly.
As reported earlier, Hoare & Co. insists that you ask before you link to their website.
So, I asked.
On your legal page I note the following: "You may not link any other website to this website without obtaining the prior written consent of C. Hoare & Co." I would like to link to your website from my blog as an example of interesting legal disclaimers (aka money for ridiculous old rope selling).
And I received a response.
Dear Mr. Worstall, I am afraid the bank does not like links to its website so sorry the answer is no. Regards,
