Money Savers Arms


Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

Thanks
MSE Forum Team

    Well it might be in the world. The EU never believe their luck to get this woman to be fully in charge for Brexit Negotiation. Now hopefully the wind direction will change if Bojo become the PM and Dominic Raab or David davies as Brexit Secretary.


    After last night’s performance I think not....

    It is almost certain Rory Stewart will be out in the the next round.
    Let hope Raab will endorse Boris and ask his supporter to back Bojo.

    Boris and Dominic Raab is a good combination to face the EU.
    But the best combination might be Farage and Dominic Raab. But unfortunately Farage has not got a chance in this instance.

    At least they will not let UK be humiliated like what TM did. And I fully believe when Raab said UK will be out of the EU deal or no-deal he really mean it, not bluffing.

    Nothing has changed. Boris will be leading a minority government. Without a new and big mandate the EU won’t budge. The EU know that Boris and the Tories don’t have the country behind him.

    To take on the EU you need most of the country behind you. We are not behind Boris. He does not have a mandate. He does not speak for us.

    I haven't watched any of the debates as they are totally irrelevant to the general public.

    However, from bits I have seen on the news they seem to be a pretty pointless exercise.

    Rory Stewart's body language is very strange - all of that bending forward to the camera and pleading looks (please vote for me);)
    Stopped smoking 27/12/2007, but could start again at any time :eek:

    To take on the EU you need most of the country behind you. We are not behind Boris. He does not have a mandate. He does not speak for us.

    There is no need for further parliamentary approval to exit the EU by 31 October. There is already mandate from the referendum and parliament. But UK need to make it clear they are not bluffing but they mean it.

    They will budge if take like what Dominic Raab will be doing. Ireland will suffer the most and there is a question whether they will survive given that 85% of their export depend on the UK port. Ireland has the power to veto the EU deal.

    They will not get 39 Bil bil. Uk will demand the asset claim from the EU assets. They will not get net contribution of EUR 10 bil euro each year. Who is going to plug this hole.

    Threaten to weaken or pull out Security and intelligence and defence cooperation. Uk is the largest contributors in the EU. Consider EU countries, which are vulnerable to Russia invasion. They might veto the agreement.

    EU need to make sure that no single country will veto their agreement.

    It is only the worst negotiator like TM could not win given that Uk has so many to offer.

    Would you listen to yourself? These are our neighbours. Most of us have Irish ancestry of some sort. It is not OK to threaten people like that.

    Keep in mind under Leo Varadkar Ireland has been used as a pawn by the EU using the Irish Border as an Excuse. it is time to turn it.
    JRM solution make it the IRish border as the Eu problem

    State clearly Uk don't want a border if they want to erect the barrier. Let them do that you will suffer the most.

    it is not a threat because they have a "choice" to reverse it using your veto. So it is up to them to use it.

    It is the essence of negotiation. No One will negotiate with you if you don't show the damage that could cause by not giving you concession.

    TM approach is begging let UK to be humiliated at the end.

    Was this the poster who previously suggested invading Ireland?

    If so your assessment is clearly correct!
