What do you REALLY think of Mr MSE (Martin Lewis) and his TV appearances?

I just saw him on GMTV and although he's trying to be helpful, he seems so irritating if you had to hang around with him on a day to day basis but what do you think of him?

I find him more irritating than nails on a blackboard.

He's just seemed to become self appointed, slightly camp spokseperson for information that was already available online but put it all under one website.

I don't have a low IQ in the slightest and as I previously stated, he does attempt to be helpful but it really does seem like he's trying to play up for the cameras and even adding in his own sound effects...does he realise his target audience isn't under 10?

That's just a cover up....he's really having an affair with Lorraine Kelly and screaming at her with the inclusion of drilled sound effects is his way of enticing her. :lol:

I did, maybe you should read mine. :thumbsup:

Martin Lewis is not the enemy at all and any rivalries between HUKD and MSE has nothing to do with me but I'm judging the man based on his personality and the way he portrays himself...not because of loyalties as that would be ridiculous. ;-)
#17
I don't have a TV - but think his site has done wonders to address the "rip off britain" culture.
#18
He Would Make A Good Qvc Presenter Full Of Exitement And Shayt
#19
You need to remember that he only has a short time to get across as much information as possible, and he has to do it in a way that is clear & easy to understand, that is informative, & that makes people want to listen. If he had a regular 30 minute show then he would come across completely differently.

(But, yes, I have to agree - I do find him OTT at times)

He's a complete and utter (swear) with ideas above his station.

He is a good bandwagon jumper I admit that.

He told people to invest in Icelandic banks.... yeah that went well.

To be fair, anyone can make mistakes, but he seems to think he's an exception.

A complete and utter ********

I thought you meant the wannabe mod crew (i.e everyone on this site) :oops: but maybe you might want to change your wording in your earlier posts before BG1 tries to report you...the mods can be ruthless at times and I've always thought of you as a good member from the posts I've read in the past and present. :)

From what I've seen, the site has always been upfront about how they make there money but he obviously is making a lot of money from all this exposure, which he should be delving into the site but everyone can do whatever they want with there own money. :thumbsup:

I understand most of the concepts he mentions are nothing to do with him but information that members have brought to his attention but it's helping people...the only thing I don't like about him is the way he comes across with his screaming, sound effects and seems arrogant. :giggle:

The sofas in one face each other - and in the other they are at 90 degrees, but funnily five of the six seats can see where a TV was in the past.

I got rid of it as I realised all the programmes I watched were using "thebox.bz" and so the real one was never on. I went to use it to watch a DVD - and it had decided to stop working at 37 months old with a three year warranty.

When I am in someone's house with TV, having not seen the run of the mill rubbish for a while - the main thing that seems quite scary is that I could have ever watched the **** that was on, as it now seems so staged and fake.

There is still a satellite dish on the wall, and I have a massive bundle of letters from the TV tax people accusing us of all sorts of things, saying paying them is the only way to avoid being taken to court, and claiming I could end up with a criminal record. They also come to the door very often, but I have a cam on the door and never really answer if its not the postman or someone I know, or I am in the mood for an argument. This was set up long before dumping the TV, after four visits from unsolicited sales people in one day pushed me over the edge. :whistling: It was as if they could tell when I was just getting into the bath.

Originally I used to return their letters to them, in their reply paid envelope with a slice of bread added to make it heavy and thick enough to require an excess postage fee. But now the letters have no envelopes and say I must call them on an 0871 number.

Interestingly - although I dont have this either as I dont use M$ windows, if you use the BBCs internet TV iplayer, it does not require you to pay the TV tax, as long as you do not receive a programme at or immediately after transmission.

Its almost two years since I paid the tax - and with the money I have saved - next year I should be able to get a nice large screen TV to use for DVDs etc - rather than the 22 inch monitors we use currently.

i like him. both him and his website have saved me afortune over the years not to mention the £7500 that my mum got back from her bank charges.

as for the comments about his website well he is upfront about how he makes his cash and if people are to stupid to realise that he's not a charity then more fool them.

The same goes for this website actually, its not here as some sort of community or public service forum its here to make the owners bucks.

I had to do a Youtube search after seeing this thread. First video I found was this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rx-ySEKUURI

I thought it was fantastic. Martin doesn't come in until the 4min mark, but when he does come in, Ch4 really do stitch him up spectacularly with the guest they wheel out and sit next to him.

Thats what I don't like about him. A lot of what he says is nicked from other people, the bank charges for example that he keeps implying was his idea, it was actually consumer action group who started it all, and once he saw people getting money back he jumped on the bandwagon, I have yet to see him give them credit anywhere.
