A recession probability map is going viral and it is looking bleak for the UK, and pretty amazing for India.
However, minimal growth will do little to help the Government as an election draws closer, and even less help for people struggling to pay theri bills.
Which?’s consumer insight tracker found that 2.4m UK households missed or defaulted on essential payments, including for housing, loans or credit cards, in the month to 13 July, reports The Guardian.
Rocio Concha, director of policy and advocacy at Which?, said: “
“We’d encourage anyone who’s struggling to seek free debt advice and reach out to their bill provider for help,” she said.
“As so many people face financial hardship, Which? is calling on businesses in essential sectors, like food, energy and telecoms, to do more to help customers get a good deal and avoid unnecessary or unfair costs and charges during this crisis.”
