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

The report has been published but will lessons be learned as Boris Johnson has commented that investigating historic child abuse is like spaffing money up the wall.
Another charm offensive? Or just offensive?

Most of the men who abused these children are free to continue their abuse. The investigation into their actions was suddenly shut down with no explanation.

Some in the media and elsewhere have played the race card to take attention away from the real dangers, to divert anger onto ethnic minorities but the real risks are being ignored still and are likely to continue in children's homes - children are not being protected. Police numbers have been decimated and funding has been cut to the quick.
An investigation was shut down and no one appears to care.

    I wonder if they could possibly investigate the thousands of child abuseres who have been and still are active all over England ?


    We better start building prisons, because, if they get them all we will need them.


    Everyone should have known about these offenders, their religion and their ethnicity, but because of their religion and ethnicity their crimes were and are covered up.

    The vast majority of victims are white working class female children, not safe in their own country, these crimes will define three decades of English society for all time.

    If they mean this particular one then that would be Labour.


    After a child's death in 2003, police identified at least 97 suspects, but "very few" faced justice, the independent review found.

    You have yourself done an injustice to the victims of these crimes by presenting it along with totally separate issues around the same theme.

    I hope this thread doesn't last long.

    Investigating some historic criminal offences is a waste of money - where the suspects are dead for example. As in the Savile investigations.

    That is exactly what is not the issue here and if you would have watched Ch 4 News you would understand that is a very base red herring. The real issue is that these children were not protected. Whether it was Jimmy Saville or a group of Asian men - these children were not protected and anger is at the Asian community when it should be at the authorities who knew about this. It is quite sinister that the investigation was shut down.

    Child Protection is the responsibility of the Police, the Schools, and Local Government. Manchester City Council has been controlled by Labour for at least 30 years, probably longer.

    Labour. Failing to protect our children.

    If they don't have an investigation how on earth do the victims and their loved ones get closure? How can lessons be learned?
    If you watched the news you would have seen how the Grandmother of the girl who killed herself was so relieved that it was all over after all of these years.

    Labour controlled authorities. Under a Labour Government.

    Although to be fair, the people on the ground were probably prevented from doing their jobs properly because of Labour inspired Political Correctness.
