I’m a Taurean right? The sign of the bull, and we all know what happens when you wave a red flag at a bull……………….
This is my good side……….
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at this, but I know it made me angry.
You may remember our mail delivery this week advising that the interest rate on our savings is being reduced from 1% to point two five percent, which means every hundred pounds saved attracts twenty five PENCE in interest A YEAR. That won’t even buy a second class stamp.
Well, I had the SW magazine delivered today as a loyalty promotion for all members whilst group meetings are now via Zoom because of the Coronavirus lockdown.
Very nice, and some lovely recipes which I shall probably try out. But as is always the case with magazines, there are flyers inside promoting eye glasses, double glazing, insurance and the like, and today it was secondary ISA accounts.
My ISA is a basic instant access one as if we needed money in a hurry, this is the only place we could get some.
According to the flyer, I can have another ISA as well as my existing one provided it is an INVESTMENT ISA and I can put in a minimum of £10 pm up to the maximum of £20,000 per year (in each ISA account).
It wasn’t that……………… it was the little snippit after it
‘Afterall, that’s no hardship for most of us ‘.
I don’t care if this might have been referring to the ten pound payments and if so, the flyer was badly worded, but our joint income is nowhere near the first £20K so how the hell could we SAVE twice that and still live? Just proves I am so out of touch with ‘incomes’.
