Do not break the habit of the Lifetime

The members of the Treasury Committee have been a very busy crew this parliament, releasing their 19th report of the current parliamentary session in July. This report focused on household finances, in particular the issues of income, savings and debt. Whilst some of the recommendations are fairly tentative, there is a sharp clarity to their advice on the Lifetime Individual Savings Account (LISA) – “The Government should abolish it.”

Boring Boring Pensions

Pensions are fascinating. In my line of work you would expect me to say that, but I do get bemused as to why more people don’t think the same. Maybe it’s a hangover from the days when of the traditional ‘Defined Benefit’ (DB) or ‘final salary’ pension schemes. In those days you didn’t really need to think about your pension. You just worked until you were 60 or 65 and the scheme paid you your pension until you died.

Lets talk about the weather

In the 15 years I’ve been living in the UK I have never experienced a summer as glorious as this one. If this becomes the new normal I am sure the UK could become a popular tourist destination in Europe, so Cornwall here we go! Much as I would like this idea to bring unadulterated joy to all of us dwellers of the British Isles, I think it might have some downsides attached.
