    Well at least it will stop the need for those "MSE article is misleading people about the interest rate" threads ... ;)

    Over the years I have always been able to get more interest elsewhere. But, as they say, every dog has its day. When its day came, I remember saying to myself: "How long is this going to last?" Not very long apparently. I got my deposits in just in time!

    I find it weird that this is referred to as a Savings Account. Isn't it, or wasn't it, National Savings Certificates?

    Hi folks, can someone please flag the previous 'clairedavid' post as we've got a member of Monty Python on the forum.

    My Outlook is having an 'issue' with doing as it's told.

    Much appreciated.

    I think "axes" is misleading. Axes infers that the product has been withdrawn permanently and will never return. I don't believe that is the case, they have withdrawn the current issues and not released a replacement. I believe and assume that a new issue will be brought out at some point so the product has not necessarily been axed.

    There is a recurring theme on MSE of reporters/contributors posting alarmist and arguably misleading articals. There's no need - tell it like it is! This isn't the Sun!

    Martin, can we have less alarmist subject headings please? I know it's been asked before.

    You don't mean Microsoft Network, do you? :p

    But you are absolutely correct, it gets more tabloid by the issue.
