Martin Lewis: Reclaim up to £40,000 on PPI thanks to THIS new rule

Martin Lewis, money saving expert, 45, said those who purchased PPI claims are “almost certainly” owed money due to a new ruling. The rule change, known as the Plevin Rule, is based on the amount of commission a bank has taken for the PPI. It comes after a 2014 court case by a woman called Susan Plevin found the bank added an unfair amount of commission on the PPI policies sold.  “Banks made a shedload of money from PPI policies,” Martin explained on the ITV show.  You are owed money back “if…

In big week for Brexit, battle deepens over the costs of 'opting out'

When I started as a foreign correspondent in the late 1970s, it never occurred to me that the discipline I’d most need to call on four decades later wouldn’t be politics or economics. Instead, it’s seismology. More than at any time since World War II, the world’s tectonic plates are shifting. With a series of major jolts to the established order, and aftershocks in nearly every corner of the globe, the earth is moving beneath our feet. The most obvious example, for Americans, has been the ascendancy of Donald Trump.…

Trump described Republicans as “going totally crazy wild” during his remarks last Tuesday, while expression-less Democrats remained seated for the majority of the speech. “They were like death,” Trump lamented. “And un-American. Un-American.” But their reaction, he said, was also something much worse. Members of Congress look on as President Donald Trump delivers the State of the Union…

Don’t need EU! Swiss export results brutal blow to bloc – and it’s much worse post-Brexit

Switzerland has gradually started trading more outside of the bloc than inside it since the financial crash of 2008, which left EU members’ economies worse off than the other potential markets, Swiss newspaper Blick has reported. By the time Britain has left the bloc, less than half of Switzerland’s exports will be traded into the EU, according to the paper. The country’s Federal Customs Administration announced this week: “Exports are at an all-time high.” Swiss exporters sold 220.4billion francs worth of goods in 2017, an increase of 4.7 percent on…

Astronomers just discovered thousands of planets outside of our own galaxy

That may have just changed in a big way, as…
