On Tuesday I was doing my regular monthly Expert slot on Jo Whiley’s Radio 1 programme. This time it was on the credit crunch and the impact on borrowing, and especially, mortgages. One section was about first time buyers and getting a mortgage. In a nutshell I said the following: No one knows what’ll happen to house...
I’m a sucker for a historical novel, and I’m currently completely absorbed by Revelation, the fourth book in C.J Sansom’s series about the fictional 16th century ‘crouchback’ lawyer-turned-detective, Matthew Shardlake. Having never been the greatest student of history, what I find fascinating is that reading this series has taught me more about the Reformation, King Henry VIII,...
Over the last fortnight, I keep hearing the Prime Minister making encouraging noises about the credit crunch, and commenting on how crucial it is we rescue first time buyers and make it easier for them to get on the property ladder during it. At first this seems a valiant aim, yet after mulling it over a bit...
I’ve just received the following press release from Hitwise, the most authoratitive web stats provider. As you’ll see, the site is now officially number one. We’ve been top on all its quarterly announcements for over a year, but this is the first time we’ve topped its annual rankings… long may it continue. Thanks to all MoneySavers who...
I’m very proud today. The site has won many accolades: it’s the biggest money site in the UK by a mile, it’s been Radio 2 website of the year, personal finance website of the year, one of the Telegraph’s 100 most useful websites… but frankly nothing comes close to this. Google webmaster tools shows we are now...
When I go for my Tuesday mornings at GM-TV, I tend to spend a chunk of my off camera time answering questions for the crew, production and editorial team about their money issues; whether it’s in wardrobe, make-up or meetings. And I know GM-TV’s resident GP Dr. Hilary Jones does something similar. Last Tuesday was a first...

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.
