Why are you unable to accept the agreed procedure for VFR departures ie 'not above 1,400ft'?
IFR departures may be required to hold sometimes, but not VFR.
Because I got a relayed message from Farnborough asking me to wait and I'm polite and helpful, though it has happened more than once and I'm no longer in a mood to be helpful. I don't see why Farnborough IFR traffic should have any priority over Fairoaks or Blackbushe IFR traffic either.
