Consuming Issues: the Team from Money Fight Club joins @GECFrost in the studio to talk on supermarkets and retail sales tactics
Today the founders of Money Fight Club -Lindsay Cook and Anne Caborn- enter the ring to talk about supermarkets and retail sales tactics. This comes after Asda has been ordered by the advertising watchdog to ensure future sales promotions don’t mislead us about how much we are saving. This was after they had given a written a commitment to alter its promotions, just days ago. It’s not just supermarkets though, with all retailers looking for the best way to get consumers money.

'Europe is not the same as the EU' - Peter Lilley MP on why he will vote to leave
There is less than a month to go before the EU referendum and voters face an onslaught of claims, counter-claims, arguments and warnings over whether staying or leaving is the best option. Britain's relationship and role within Europe has been a matter of debate for centuries, more intensely since the war and continuously since membership of the EEC, now the EU, 43 years ago. Former Secretary of State for Trade, Peter Lilley, cabinet member under Margaret Thatcher and John Major has experienced that debate at some crucial stages, particularly the Maastricht treaty. He joins Ed Mitchell, host of Investment Perspectives, in studio.
