Martin Lewis issues four-week warning to millions over 18 and says 'as if'

Martin Lewis has issued a four-week warning to anybody voting in the General Election and said "as if". BBC Sounds podcast presenter and ITV regular Mr Lewis has defended himself in the middle of allegations he is "taking sides" between Conservative Party MPs and the Labour Party.

"Interesting to see how different papers pick up different things - as if I'm supporting one side or the other...," Mr Lewis explained on Twitter today. Mr Lewis shared a screengrab from Google News results today, after searching his name to see two newspaper stories side-by-side.

The Telegraph headline was: "Martin Lewis accuses Labour of living in 'fairy-tale land' over public spending black hole." It went on to add: "MoneySavingExpert founder clashes with Jonathan Ashworth on Good Morning Britain about party's financial plans...."

The Evening Standard headline read: "Martin Lewis pushes Cabinet minister to apologise on TV for Labour £2000 tax claim." The subheadline said: "The Money Saving Expert challenged the Energy Security Secretary about the Tory tax allegation when she appeared on ITV's Good Morning Britain."

A fan asked: "Both sides suggest ‘growth’ can fix the black hole What level of growth do you think is needed in this instance? Is that realistic?" A second said: "I wish there were a new political party, one with a long term vision, not carrying the baggage of leftist and rightist dogma, with honest spending and tax policies, whose aim is to lift everyone into a better life and society."

"You’re about the only journalist that has understood the subtleties and questioned each side one where they may have been overstretching their narrative on it all. Top marks! Wish there was more of this considered journalism that seeks truth and explanation rather than headlines," another said.

"Unfortunately too many people still buy papers and believe what they read. As a kid I remember using them as toilet paper, they’re not even fit for that anymore," another agreed.
