Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: The Global Elizabethan Legacy
The Commonwealth's extraordinary ability to reconcile and accept diversity of politics and faith in this huge and growing family of nations started with Elizabeth seventy years ago. Democracy works well within nations, but her generosity of spirit has proved how an appointed leader can bring about real reconciliation between nations. The British people have yet to learn what this lesson of true partnership in the Commonwealth of nations and faith really means. We are too quick to recall our sense of history and importance, too quick to reach for our Union Jacks and our ‘Rule Britannia’. We have a lot to learn from our Queen, and perhaps we should start by paying much more attention to the Commonwealth which she has fostered so brilliantly over the past seventy years.

This Is Money: How can you protect against holiday chaos this summer?
Just when you thought it was safe to go back on holiday... Britain descended into holiday chaos this week, as airlines cancelled hundreds of flights, airports struggled to cope and even Eurostar ended up with a day of disruption. For those who suffered at the hands of airline chaos, it was a harsh and unfair experience - with many of those travellers taking their first post-Covid trip abroad and others heading off for what were meant to be celebratory family events. Both airlines and airports let their passengers down - after all, they knew how many would be travelling, as they'd all booked tickets - and then got involved in a finger-pointing blame game with the Government. Georgie Frost, Helen Crane and Simon Lambert discuss where the blame lies for the disruption, what people's rights are if their flights are cancelled and what we can all do to protect ourselves if we hope to go away over the summer. Also, the team talk about why some of the best mortgages are currently being offered by lesser-known building societies and how long you'd have to wait for an electric car's lower running costs to pay off. And finally, from travel chaos to energy firm blunders: how did Bulb swing from telling someone they were owed almost £2,000 and refunding them their cash when they moved, to declaring six months later that the customer now owed Bulb almost £2,000? Helen talks through a recent Crane on the Case, where Bulb seemingly decided Ofgem's one-year back billing rule didn't apply to it.

Motley Fool Money: Yes, Women Make Better Investors Than Men (29/5)

The Hypnotist: Freedom from Childhood Expectations
Life plans and other expectations formed at an early age can work out very differently in adulthood, and often anxiety can result from moving goalposts. This episode uses the technique of regression to re-visit events in the past to show how although you can't predict what's going to happen, you can choose. It's interesting to reflect how this must feel for the Queen, who was aware of her destiny from the age of ten, set out her intentions in 1952, and continues to fulfill them seventy years on.

James Cameron-Wilson celebrates a bounce in UK box office caused by Top Gun:Maverick arriving at #1 a mere 36 years after the original. He found it spectacular and exciting. He also enjoyed the movie spinoff of Bob's Burgers once he became attuned to it, not knowing the TV show. He also recommends the Danish Netflix film Toscana about a chef going to Italy to sort out his late father's affairs.
