The financial future still looks pretty bleak. ‘The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos has wrapped up….. and in short, the outlook, after a week of intense discussion, is of a troubled world pressed for solutions across a number of fronts, but with optimism provided by human ingenuity and progress.’ I too am optimistic about […]

Shop around! I did and I found gas for about half the price of British Gas – with no standing charges! What’s more, I know what the price will be after a forthcoming rise and it’s still nearly half the price of BG who haven’t even put their prices up yet! So the story goes; I’ve […]

Leaving Sky and switching to BT. Thank you Sky for once again automatically upgrading my broadband to a service that costs £7.50 per month more just because you seem to think I’d gone over my paltry usage allowance for the second time in 6 months. And then to be told I have to stay on that package for […]

What an excellent idea. Recycle your old phones for cash! I had three of them lying around and I thought I’d see who offered the best deal. I started with the two most advertised options because I’ve been brainwashed into thinking everything I see on television is true. But then thanks to Google and competitive advertising […]
