See thisislondon.co.uk/lite G ood news that the Government is planning to make credit card companies adopt new practices in order to stop consumers getting into so much debt, but whatever happened to personal respon- sibility? Credit cards can be very useful if you use them in the right way. Its exactly the same as with alcohol -- everything in moderation. Petra, London I use my cards sensibly. Just because some people cant handle their finances, why should I be forced to make the proposed bigger minimum payments which will disadvantage me? Whatever you do to protect them, certain people will always struggle to behave the right way. We need to make it more difficult for those who are irresponsible to bor- row money in the first place, not try to pick up the pieces when its too late. Andy, London MInIMuM repayments are far too low but nobody stops people paying more, nor do the credit companies make people max-out on their cards just because theyve been given an increased balance. If people cant afford to repay then they shouldnt borrow in the first place. Glenda, London I had a bad experience o f b e i n g seriously in the red. Id do anything to avoid it again. once youre in debt, youre at the mercy of the banks. I had to work really hard to get back in the driving seat and I intend to stay there. Gary H, GU7 I have always avoided credit cards. Ive seen too many people get into trouble and I think its time for more stringent restric- tions. For a start they are too easy to get hold of. More checks are needed before getting a card. Amy, London IF a seedy person offered me money, Id run a mile. Most card firms are exactly that but hide behind a suit. Lance, Finchley I have a credit card and only use it to improve my credit profile. Frank, London Textpoll Q: Should men stand up for women on the Tube? OurlastresultAre NHS dentists paid too much?
