News Links

An aggregation site I can link to again (they had a revamp and became unusable, another revamp and I can use them again) is Newsnow which is well worth trawling through.

English newspapers all have a definite political viewpoint, some of them (not linked to here) excessively and unfairly so. Try these:
Reuters.   ||    CNN   ||    IBTimes    ||    The UK Guardian

Always worth a read on technology issues is The Register -if you have problems, try turning off CSS and hit reload.

This is Money has interesting financial news but their various comparison tables have only the top 20 or so which often tend to be the organisations with lower credit ratings or lacking UK based deposit guarantees. Be aware that the UK deposit guarantee scheme is restricted to the registered owner organisation and not trade names - and some of the less strong organisations use many trade names, often not clearly divulged. Often only one or two providers can occupy all of a table given by this web site! Not good comparison tables.

A further source of information on savings and so on, Money Advice Service NOTE: In 2016 the Government announced this website would be closed in 2018.
