Also, why does it matter that those articles are old? You say they're "likely to be irrelevant". I'm setting up a presumption shift. I've given evidence that MasterCard does do this.
No, you didn't answer them. You started with what is, for all banks being discussed here (with a possible Barclays exception), a false premise: "So we start with a single premise, that the legal documents (and phone calls) suggest there is a fee." Everything following from the false premise is irrelevant.

No, you haven't given evidence that MasterCard does this (present tense), you've given evidence that MasterCard used to do this 5 years ago. Card T&C documents come out every year. Anything more than a year old is unreliable.
