Martin, what do you make of this?

"Martin Lewis is always banging on about living within your means.

The simple fact is that government is spending more than it is
earning - i.e. we, as a country, are not living within our means.

If our government was a family on TV the first thing Lewis would do is cut waste and spending to get the family living within their means. The next thing he would do is tackle how to reduce the debt. This is exactly what our government are doing.

I simply cannot comprehend how 40% of people visiting this web site, which is all about getting out of debt and living within your means, can say that it's okay to keep spending in the hope of future riches! :mad: Do people not listen to a word of what Lewis preaches?"
Boris Johnson voted against Brexit in the Commons, all to become leader of the Conservative Party. Fall for it and you deserve everything you get.
