Martin Lewis- Money Saving Expert

God that man is bloody irritating!

He is doing a Tonight special on Friday about the credit crunch. I have just seen an advert.

He is so self-righteous and has mannerisms which suggest he is a hypermaniac.

Another example of someone making money on the back of other peoples misery!

Re: Martin Lewis- Money Saving Expert

I quite like him - getting people to take control of their finances has to be a good thing.

Fool.co.uk - The UK financial news and comparison website is my second best website - after this one of course.

If you read the MSE debt free wannabe forum and see just how financially illiterate a significant proportion of the population really is, then you see how much a Martin type is needed (however annoying he might be).

His website just saved me £60 on european breakdown cover, so he can't be all bad.
I've never seen him live though, so I can't comment on whether he's annoying.

Heard him on the radio (comes across as enthusiastic bordering on evagelical) but never seen him in the flesh - his site is really handy, though.

Re: Martin Lewis- Money Saving Expert

I think his manic delivery (on the radio) is partly due to frustration at the complete cretins who ring in. Geez, they make me manic in the two minutes I have to listen to them drivelling on about how annoyed they are with their bank or credit card you won't "give" them any more money. I don't think they've worked out they might have to "give" it back at some point....

Re: Martin Lewis- Money Saving Expert

He is slightly irritating but he has saved me hundreds of pounds over the past few years so I really don't care. I have not paid any interest on any credit card for over seven years saving me a fortune thanks to his advice.

Gordon Brown however, is a very irritating little banker and he is costing all of us thosands every day.

Yes - but women with large teeth have had to learn a technique that is so well worth the bother
