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

    I'm irritated for the lady I see on the bus and around town sometimes.
    Aged 65, been in the UK since 18 months old, school here, worked here, gets pension from here in August, but only ever had an Italian passport.

    She's been told by The Home Office and The Italian Consulate that they don't know whether she needs to apply for 'settled status' here or not. Poor woman, no wonder she wanted to talk today, I would have screamed .... 64 years here.

    She asked the local Labour MP what she should do. His answer? "Blame the Tories" :wall:
    Senora ........ I am irritated on your behalf!

    It is a total disgrace it really is the lurch to the right this Country is taking and making victims of people like this woman, what happened to the nice tolerant Country we used to be.

    This is the sort of ignorance we now have.....

    Today I shall focus my ire on a son who is diligently gardening, with his headphones on.

    If I want him, he said, "phone", he'll "feel the buzz".

    Well, he hasn't. His father is feeling all neglected & ignored (as I've work to finish). Infuriating!

    I'm more than irritated with the git who clipped my car in Tesco's car park and just cleared off. :mad:

    I'll be looking out for a white car with some black streaks.

    Just heard a plane fly over my house which sounded suspiciously like it was powered by a merlin engine. My irritation is I didn't actually see it

    Deciding to move my money from a poor ISA.

    Confused by ISA, Stocks and Shares and now this PSA.

    All I know is I would rather not risk fixed as you never know when you need the money,

    They should have a general election and all the candidates should be forced to announce if they are leave or remain voters and then forced to vote that way forever if elected.

    No point in giving the 'people' a vote on the matter if the elected body is allowed to then overturn that result.
