However, if you really are hugely unhappy with your bank, then explain this to your branch and tell them that you are considering leaving. Bank managers have to explain closed accounts up the administrative chain...so you definitely have a bit of leverage there.
Paul, if someone threatened to close their account, I would getting an account closed form so quick that before the reason was mentioned it would be shut. There is no leverage in threatening to close an account becuase of charges. I wish it was as simple as that. Banks are not as flexable as before.
