So far 13,000 votes in and the dominant (80%) view of those who've voted, is for far more regulation and control, if not full nationalisation. This is far from the usual 50-50 split on many policy issues. Quite telling. twitter.com/MartinSLewis/s…

@MartinSLewis Hi Martin, I’ve started Uni this week as a mature student (39!) all thanks to a programme I watched on you explaining how it’s easier to think of student loan as more of a tax than a debt and how repayments depend on your income. Hopefully may encourage others too. ☺️

I will of course talk you through step-by-step how to decide in tomorrow's MSE weekly email and on my @itvMLshow 8:30pm Thursday night twitter.com/MartinSLewis/s…
The last fixed rate energy tariff priced below the new (12% higher) 1 October price cap has just been pulled from the market. Those who haven't done anything are now faced with the stark choice of sticking with the price cap locking in at a higher rate.

.@KwasiKwarteng pls ask ur advisors to explain to u how price cap's set On @GMB when replying to my note that cap will likely jump hugely on 1Apr, u said "we can't know what gas prices'll be on 1Apr" Irrelevant. 1Apr cap's based on AUG21-JAN22 avg wholesale rates (ie now)

2. Big firms service is worse than main challengers 3. I've long called for better controls on small firm licenses (and succeeded in getting some change). Yet even when a cheap firm goes bust, people saved meanwhile, and pay no more than non-switchers after
This is not a view, just an interesting (I hope) observation. Many of those people who are most vehemently criticising how the government run things, are also those most passionately in favour of renationalising the energy industry (so it is effectively run by govt). twitter.com/MartinSLewis/s…
Today's Twitter Poll: What should happen to the energy market? Prices are at record highs, after an explosion in wholesale rates. Many small firms are close to collapse. Which of these four blunt choices is CLOSEST to your view?

Actually I've warned about small firms for years. Both on TV and via MSEs comparison. I successfully lobbied ofgem to change rules to incl tests on finances & service before granting licences. And more. Tho now it's not small companies struggling it's most, inc pretty big ones. twitter.com/SussexSaint1/s…
Lots asking me is energy price just a UK issue? No. Underlying cause is worldwide wholesale gas prices. Yet UK's far worse off for many reasons inc - how much of our elec is generated by gas - A fire at link in chain connecting us to france - Lack of wind (not from politicians)
A version of this with subtitles is now available via YouTube (opt to turn them on)... youtube.com/watch?v=-YMrsF… twitter.com/MartinSLewis/s…
It's my second week on tiktok... last weeks videos were about mortgages. This weeks all about student finance. Please share with people it'll be useful for... tiktok.com/@martinlewismse
As @KwasiKwarteng says "our warm home discount will continue to support many vulnerable consumers", its worth noting two facts. -Warm Home Discount's been stuck at £140 for NINE yrs -Cost of cheapest tariffs is up 40% in ONE yr, the price cap up 12% now & likely 20% more in Apr
Govt's three principles on energy - The taxpayer should not be expected to prop up companies with poor biz models. - Customers (inc vulnerable) must be protected from spikes - We must not return to a few large suppliers oligopoly
I hear when energy switching online today some are being told by firms "you only have elec" when you are dual fuel. Is so as deals being pulled... - Politely call em - Ask em to fix issue & guarantee you'll get TODAY'S rate - Get name of person & time of call so you've a record
I'm chairing the @mmhpi trustee meeting this afternoon. Just as govt is likely to make its energy announcement that I want to watch. Luckily vice-chair @RichardJLloyd has kindly step in if i need to nip out. #NotGoodAtMultiTasking

Not seen the BBC article, tho I'm sure its good. Yet be fair, I've been warning of this since May and wrote a specific substantial piece on this two weeks ago... moneysavingexpert.com/tips/2021/09/0… The fact is mainstream non-money news is now catching us up, NOT vice-versa! twitter.com/bitcoin_futuro…
Just filming a quick video to talk you through the energy bills crisis and what to do. Will upload soon.
The weekend is almost here. I'm going to hear out for a run before it starts... so I'm signing off social media now, and will see you back here bright and breezy on Monday morning. Have a great one.
Today's Twitter Poll: Do you support allowing shopkeepers to choose to go back to ONLY imperial measures (pounds and ounces) Ministers have unveiled plans to legalise markets, shops & supermarkets that want to ditch metric and use only imperial measures Are you pro or against?
We are thrilled that our Chair & Founder @MartinSLewis has been shortlisted for Celebrity Charity Champion at today’s #ThirdSectorAwards 🥳 Best of luck to all nominees!H

Dear @NadineDorries. Congrats on your new job. May I plead with you to include scam adverts in the Online Safety Bill alongside scam user content. The distinction is arbitrary and impractical. The omission is catastrophic to million's wealth & mental health. Happy to discuss.

Many kindly asked me if they can say "Happy Yom Kippur" or similar. The usual phrasing is "Go well over the fast" as it is the Day of Atonement (a bit like catholic confession but all done in a one-day annual blitz) so not a 'happy' thing so to speak. :) twitter.com/MartinSLewis/s…
Over the yrs I've met Ministers of all parties on subjects I've expertise in eg energy. I've been gobsmacked when I met some early (sometimes later) by how little they know One new Uni minister, in closed meet, asked me to explain student loans So prior knowledge not compulsory twitter.com/Tinah51568138/…
Gavin Williamson no longer Education Secretary.... who would've seen that coming! (walks away whistling)
Our MSE weekly email is out, incl.. -SIX banks now giving switchers £100+ -Auto-save at 0.7% up to £30,000 -30 Amazon hacks (not too taxing) -Shift debt to 27mth 0% 'NO FEE' -25% Dyson code -Energy firms go bust -100 days to Xmas & more mse.me/latesttip Feel free to share
It's Yom Kippur tonight, starts 7pm and lasts until 8pm tomorrow night including a fast no food no water. Its a really interesting time as we turn off all communication and focus on self-contemplation and renewal. Yet right now I am pigging-out on EVERYTHING I can eat.
@MartinSLewis @bbc5live It's good to read so many positive feedbacks from students.

Today's Twitter Poll: Climate change activists from Insulate Britain are currently blocking the M25, similar transport disruption protests have been done by Extinction Rebellion. Do you support their cause & method, or does it turn you against them. What's closest to your view?

First it was struggling to read in the dark, now I'm struggling to read the social media posts I'm writing on my phone... this is getting dangerous, I think the reading glasses may be coming... I'm not bothered, this is all fine. Totally fine.

The energy bills crisis is worsening. A wk ago I was suggesting Igloo customers should leave before its 1 Oct price hike (3rd this year) leaving it only a typical £40 cheaper than the price cap Now as prices continue to rocket, that & even the price cap aren't looking expensive!
