Weekend Round-up

There’s a video clip from Martin Lewis, the Money Savings Expert that is really worth watching.  He is protesting about the Chancellor saying he won’t release details of the next SEISS grant until March, after the budget.  However, he does offer a glimmer of hope and speculates that it could be because the Chancellor is looking at ways that those excluded could be brought in.  I do like Martin Lewis – fingers crossed!  You can watch the video here.
