Can’t see the Good for the Fees

Card BlindnessI’ve heard of looking at the world through rose-tinted glasses but it seems the Government’s glasses are card-coloured.

It’s been reported HERE that the Coalition have gone back on an election promise to reign in the credit card companies and limit their extortionate fees.

So at a time when we all have less money to spend, the Government not only allows loan shark Payday loan companies to continue ripping us off but refuse to do anythng about the big 3 credit card companies, Visa, Mastercard and American Express …. still no sign of a Robin Hood tax though.

I’m sure this will have nothing to do with the revenue the Government gets from credit card company profits or that the old boy/old school tie network are in each others pockets.

Remember, we’re all in this together – no, I mean it, we are. Only we are in it just to survive while they are in it to ensure we don’t.

But then maybe I was wrong about them not having rose-coloured glasses. After all roses are red, matching our boiling blood pressures and coincidenatlly that’s the same colour all those monthly statememnts will soon be.
