I think there's some confusion here...
I can't see the problem for asking for a reduction in your rate especially as it has been done. There is a problem with being annoyed if it doesn't happen. And i think the note is very plain people must assume that rejection is the likely outcome.
As for the difference between haggling and asking for a rate reducation - its purely semantic. The point is there's no harm asking if your lender will drop your rate... and this note is to get people to have a go and see if there's a widespread pattern (or simply the one person was a one off).

Am I being crazy by gambling a remaining 2 years fixed at 5.19% and £2500 get-out-fees to take a 10 year fix at 5.39% now? My thinking is two-fold- I will want a longer guarantee and my "reading of the tea leaves" (ie listening to most people's predictions about what interest rates will be like in 2 years makes me think fixing now is worthwhile.
I know its a gamble but anyone like to work out what interest rates will have to rise to to make it a good bet?
