Martin Lewis Money Show 8Pm Itv Tonight

Recommended Posts

Doubtless simple minded stuff for us HPC'ers, but worth a look to see how a prime time, mass audience of 3 million plus is being advised about Help to Buy etc.

I don't really like his scarf either - but there is some real common sense being talked here so far.

Surprise surprise its not on the Bbc.

I'm surprised you're all surprised. Despite the property parts of the money saving expert forums primarily being frequented by some very unsavoury characters, Martin Lewis himself has always come across very level headed and reasonable on his segments on the various media outlets he appears on. I have never once heard him talk about missing the boat, property always going up etc - indeed he has often fought HPC's corner (subtly, without explicitly saying a crash is inevitable/desirable - and I don't blame him for that because by doing so he'd never appear again) when appearing alongside some vested interest fool.

We thought any anti-HPI or pro-renting comments would be edited out like on the Biased Broadcasting Corporation.

I am no fan of the BBC and I agree, but I've heard him say similar on 5live many times (i.e. on live radio, rather than pre-recorded)- basically stating that if you can't afford it *comfortably*, don't buy it. He said on one of the shows he rented till he was 33, and only bought when it made financial sense to do so (i.e he was beyond rich).

As someone who might buy I found this show quiet interesting and informative. Had some useful tips on how to get a good credit score and did convince one couple to save s bit more to get a better TV and there for a better rate

Probably because as 90% of the population are thick when it comes to money/maths. It's the only way to explain it to them,

Spent some time yesterday explaining gross +net to some 30 odd year old dinner ladies.

Never worked (thank you gordon + your tax credits).

Wait til they have to work full time + income tax kicks in.
