Wasting my £200 getting this bagged, or not?

Got Prince2, ISEB Testing foundation and intermediate, plus ITIL service management.

Would getting the MSP foundation see me as a rounded person for programmes and projects, or a willy waving tosspot to agents?

I think MSP is a good idea but not many people do this compared to PRINCE2. I am reading the MSP book at the moment and I am amazed at how PRINCE2:2009 uses a lot of the same concepts and ideas. My point, if you have done PRINCE2:2009, then you will find MSP Foundation easier to learn.

Tip: Get hold of the MSP Foundation Syllabus form the APMG site before you start to read the manual

Brilliant idea, Thanks Frank. Booking the exam for the end of this month - Done the Prince2 and as you say a lot of similarities, so worth bagging I guess!
