Credit Action stats make for grim reading..’appy new year

Debt enquiries to Citizens Advice Bureaux in England and Wales have hit a record high

Each month the Firstrung team feature the data compiled by Richard and his team at Credit Action. As each month passes the 'tale of the tape' gets more jaw dropping/bacon butty dropping. It's pointless highlighting particular statistics in this survey. If you have five minutes it's worth reading the report in full in order to take on board just how apparently 'out of control' our spending and subsequent combined debt actually is.

  • CL, I dropped my bacon butty before Christmas and signed up to use my talents with a local debt charity.

    Will 2008 be the year that debt and repossession get onto the political agenda? I hope so. We might even find a few journalists explaining how we got into this state too!
