Now don’t get excited everyone, I’ve only just started going out with the MSG, as most of you should know it’s this site that’s my baby. Anyway we’re in the process of the first ever proper redesign. The site will still work the same way but it’s going to have a different look and navigation, to make...
As noted in an earlier blog, I’m currently using speech dication as my RSI is bad. I was dictating a note to the Make Me Rich Exec Producer, Cat who’s gorgeous, but also a ferociously tough cookie sometimes. My intended “it was lovely to talk to you this afternoon” was kindly turned into “it was lovely to...
I’ve seen an advert two or three times this weekend, for Norwich Union and its investment plans. At the end it says if you need help contact our Financial Advisers for more information. Have you spotted the missing word? Of course the missing word is Independent. Go to Norwich Union looking for an investment, and its Financial...
Having just returned from holiday, the MSG called up excitedly to report she’d just won a rather interesting weather award (she’s a weather presenter)….. Well done MSG I’m proud of you. Discuss this blog PS. And contrary to the ‘I am Spartacus claims in the chat forum’ the MSG still hasn’t been brave enough to post there...
I’ve started to notice a disturbing trend among some of the inhabitants of MSE Towers! Having just come back from the Jeremy Vine programme, where I was originally scheduled to do a short newsy discussion on Reclaiming Bank Charges, followed by the main phone-in about cutting the cost of running a car – I spotted something worrying....
As I’m walking through the ticket hall at Bond Street tube station this morning, a man jumps out at me. “Oy you!???. Instantly my fight or flight reflex is kicked into gear (you’ve always got to be wary on the tube) and I carry on walking away. Then he says “can you tell me the name of...
At the end of this week, I’m off for a few days away, tripping abroad for a family celebration. The MSG is going to be coming with me, so I have adequate time to try and persuade her that she should post in the chat forums. Currently even though she does read a few things in there,...
I was rather surprised over the weekend to see a Pizza Hut advert proclaiming ‘now every day is an all you can eat pizza day at a bargain price of £3.99’, in other words they’ve now extended their midweek offer to the weekend. On first glance this does seem an extremely cheap price. Of course it doesn’t...
You’d be surprised at the looks you get in any office if you say those words out loud at volume. Sadly as my RSI is now back with a vengeance, I’m back on the speech dictation. This means that many of the things I have to write, including this blog, are dictated out aloud. Whilst give me...

11 September 2023Update September 2017: It’s eight years since I first braved this subject, expecting a snowstorm of protest. Instead, year after year more join in, like Julia who recently tweeted me, “@MartinSLewis, finally took your advice and told my family I can’t afford Christmas presents. What a weight off my mind. Thank you.” One year even the Archbishop of...
4 September 2023The 2023 academic year is about to start, and it'll see the biggest shake-up to student finance in England for a decade. The changes are both subtle and massive. On the surface they look like a tweak, in practice they will increase the eventual cost of going to university by over 50% for many typical graduates.
