Oh No! There is currently a growing trend among banks and building societies charging for overdrafts on their current accounts as they seek to concentrate on certain customer groups.
That is the view of Mark Bower, managing director of online resource Money Maxim, who has said that this move is also meant to discourage other potential consumers from opting for their products through a pricing plan – something which may then lead these individuals to consider other finance options such as a credit card or their savings accounts.
Earlier this week, Lovemoney.com revealed that more financiers are now attaching fees to overdrafts, with, for example, Norwich and Peterborough Building Society confirming it is to do so in the near future.
Mr Bower noted that this ongoing trend “makes it all the more important to read every piece of mail that comes from your financial providers and not assume it’s mere junk mail”.
Yes it’s that time of year again where the whether can bring a complete standstill to our daily lives. Especially the case if you are living in Scotland this season. Here is a one such example of where some can bring utter destruction to a major structure. Here is the Metrodome roof collapsing live on video. Scary stuff.
After a year passing since the infamous Copenhagen Climate Change summit in Copenhagen last year, hailed as being one of the most important in history, you would be forgiven for forgetting completely about climate change.
It’s not your fault, you have had a lot on your mind. It’s been a tough year, we are all poor and to busy thinking about saving ourselves time, effort and or money than saving our planet. But after the miserable failings of last year climate summit, all mention of it has completely dropped from the media, whereas as it was a daily occurrence in the year previous. Maybe it was because of the miserable failings of world leaders to achieve anything, or maybe it was a different reason.
Either way, it is that time of year again where leaders meet up to discuss the issue, and climate change has returned to the headlines. But will anything change other than the climate? No. Because politicians are designed by very definition to maintain things the way they are, because progress could soon make us realise that they and the system they swear to don’t work.
Once you stop embracing or evoking change, you are already dead. Politics is dying. Change before you reap death on the rest of us.
