Hot money-saving tips for the cold months

Baby it’s cold outside… so naturally energy use is rising – but most people are massively overpaying and can save £100s in minutes. Our Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis is here to warm you up with his energy saving tips.

I don't know whether to GRRR or BRRR. It's cold, so energy use is rising, but 7 in 10 UK homes frustratingly still overpay by an average 35%. Yet it's EASY to sort. It takes minutes to find your cheapest, then it's switched in 17 days. And don't worry, there's no service break – your heating stays on.

Should there be a sugar tax?

With Parliament meeting today to debate the 20% sugar tax proposed by Jamie Oliver's campaign, we're asking whether or not this will work. Is this a nanny state move, should there be a tax on high sugar products or should labelling be clearer with teaspoons instead of grams so we can make our own informed decisions?

We're joined by paediatric nutritionist Jennifer Rosborough from Action On Sugar and Dr Uchenna Okoye, a dentist who says the rise in children being treated for sugar related dental work is shocking. However, strongly opposed to the sugar tax is the Daily Mail's Andrew Pierce, who thinks this is a typical example of 'nanny state junk'.

Michaela Strachan on why lion hunting should stop

Canned hunting is breeding lions in captivity to be sold to the hunting industry to be shot for trophies

– Michaela Strachan

On the 1st July, millions around the world were shocked by the death of Cecil the Lion who was brutally hunted by an illegal party of big game hunters.

Since then, lion conservationists have campaigned to expose the savage world of trophy hunting of lions.

Now, in a new documentary film Blood Lions, Michaela Strachan's husband, Nick Chevallier, goes undercover to reveal what really goes on at these hunting lodges.

Martin's Black Friday deals

Urgent: Don’t delay on solar panels plus it’s Black Friday week which means stores are pumping out deals galore, including Selfridges 20% off, a £104 Body Shop bundle for £42, £25 Ikea Christmas tree gets £20 voucher and 50% off everything at La Redoute. These are our Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis’ Quick Deals.

Remember, deals can change quickly, even while I’m on the programme. So always double-check the terms and conditions before spending. Plus, while I hope these deals will save you cash, don’t spend if you can’t afford it, don’t need it, or won’t use it.

Is military action the right response to Syria?

We believe that action can help to protect us, then with our allies we should be part of that action, not standing aside from it

– David Cameron

Are air strikes against the Islamic State in Syria in the UK's national interest?

David Cameron thinks so, urging MPs to back a decision for airstrikes against the Islamic State. He emphasised the need to use the military because there was "no doubt" the "so called Islamic state group, pose a threat to our own people".

Cameron previously argued against the UK bombing ISIS in Syria, however the attacks in Paris two weeks ago have emboldened ministers to launch a renewed push for military action.

We talk to broadcaster Julia Hartley-Brewer who believes a military action is the right answer and columnist Owen Jones who strongly disagrees.
