US Outlook: If you wanted to read last night about Oprah Winfrey quitting her chat show, or Michelle Obama's wardrobe, you could have gone to AOL's website. But of course you didn't have to. There's lots of coverage of Oprah out there on the web. And if you were after something more entertaining by half, you might watch a Barack and Michelle elf dance on YouTube.

Q. I was divorced in 2005, when I was also off work because of ill health. This led to arrears on my mortgage with the West Bromwich Mortgage Company. At the final divorce proceedings the judge said that as the house was up for sale and to avoid further hardship I only had to make the mortgage payments, not the arrears. But WBMC began eviction proceedings immediately after the divorce and applied for the eviction of my ex-wife and our children. Each time it applied the judge said that as long as the mortgage was being paid there were no grounds for eviction. Each time, WBMC immediately applied again for eviction. Before the house was sold in May 2007 WBMC told me the arrears were £3,192.81, plus legal fees of £5,922.44 for the failed eviction proceedings. I also had to pay £3,767.75 for my own legal fees to prevent the evictions. I lodged a complaint with the Financial Ombudsman, which concluded WBMC's legal fees were justified. It said if I was still unhappy I could sue WBMC, but I no longer have the money to do this. NS, Stockton-on-Tees.
