The article presents a reprint of the article "FSA should kick some sub-prime ass," which appeared in the August 3, 2007 issue of "Private Eye." It tackles the need for the British Financial Services Authority (FSA) to regulate lending to people who cannot afford. Although this action is considered a little too late, it is a welcomed decision as U.S. lenders and their customers experience sub-prime mortgage losses.
