Must preparing wills before parents die

    More than anyone else, parents and grandparents should avoid the pitfalls of not preparing a will. It’s a shocking statistic, but around 27 million adults in the UK have failed to prepare a will*. This can have serious consequences, especially if you’re a parent. Dying without a will means the law will simply run its course, and often again your wishes. It’s a huge risk that can leave you powerless over your assets. Why A Professional Will Is Essential: The technical term for passing away with no valid will is ‘dying intestate’. If this happens your money, possessions and property will be divided up according to the law, and your loved ones could stand to inherit nothing. For instance, if you are unmarried and die ‘intestate’, your partner would by law receive nothing. If ...

A little boy’s life in danger and suffered brain tumour but GP says hayfever and prescribed antihistamines

    The Brain Tumour Charity When Rosie Bell noticed her son had started to bump into things and tumble, she put it down to him inheriting the family brand of clumsiness.

Ignoring her concerns that she would be seen as a hypochondriac mum, she took Daniel to the doctor who dismissed his symptoms as hayfever and prescribed him antihistamines. However in the days that followed little Daniel continued to be sick and he was eventually referred to a paediatrician. It was then that Rosie, who was seven months pregna...

Britain is fast becoming the sick man of Europe: experts debate Brexit data

David Blanchflower: Professor of economics at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and member of the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee from June 2006 to May 2009 I keep waiting for the good news that the Brexiters told us would come once the vote to leave the EU was in. The vote was an unexpected shock to the markets that was always going to take a while to work its way into the main economic data. A year on, Britain is the slowest-growing country in both the G7 and the EU28. In the first quarter of 2017, the UK grew 0.2%, whereas the eurozone grew by 0.6%. As a result of the Brexit vote and the economic uncertainty it unleashed, Britain is fast becoming the sick man of Europe. That seems unlikely to change soon. Once again this month, there is only thin economic gruel in the data. ...
