^^Thats hit the nail on the head, some lads who have trouble getting insured on decent cars and hop from Metro to metro, often do it, to get some return on an otherwise shagged car. Slam on in front of any driver who gets to close, oh look here's a taxi driver in his vectra tail gating us. BANG! Money.

I had an experience where I had bump in my Seat Ibiza years ago, it was about 4mph. It didn't even wake a sleeping baby in the back, the couple were middle aged, and assured me there was no harm done to the car, or them. Cool. Seemed genuine.
Few weeks later, Churchill letter drops through the door, and it's them two Werthers Original sucking, Fair Isle jumper wearing, model yacht painting silvertopped old biddys making whiplash claims. b*stards. They were blatantly fine at the scene, they just hate young people. That's what happens when Hip-Hop meets Hip-Op  >:(

for the insurance company losing money its not as black and white as it seems, i think the main underwriter for the UK is Barclay's, not the bank by the way they are 2 dif company's. barclays have to store cash if that's the right term for all the insurance business an they have lost money but its not all down to insurance fraud from the drive in front an slam on freaks as they don't even really scratch the surface.

    the main loses that they have hit them is infact the volcano last year and European airspace shuttin down for how many weeks it was, the earthquakes japan and Mexico i think it was not to mention the tsunamis. barclays underwrite for most the company's that offer insurance for insurance company's that we the general public and large coperations and business's deal with. so they take the huge hit and raise there premiums to the insurance company's to under write them.

  yet its not all down to the underwriters like barclays, you just have to see how one quotation from one comany to another quote from someone else can vary by something stupid like .?1000 to sit there an think how the hell do they get these figures. i honestly believe that its a basic case of the company sits there an goes what is the most we can get out of them before they refuse to pay.

we do not have an option on if we have insurance and as such we are litterally blackmailed into these high prices in a time where most people including myself have to scrimp and save for most things in live and every penny counts yet are extorted by insurance and fuel company's and don't get me started on the government and what can we do about it, not a damn thing. :o

isn't the whole 'everyone should be equal in everything' idea, the way in which we are heading, the foundation of what is formally known as 'communism'?

Bit more to it than that, but we only seem to want to copy the bad bits of it.

lol Chaz, go f*ck yourself you ginger prick ;D

To keep this slightly on topic, been looking up quotes on "gocompare" recently for random cars and noticed an insurer I've never heard of called "XK services" or something very similar to that, they have quoted me cheaper than everyone no matter which car I've asked for the quote on? ??? Any ideas if they're any good?

seems abit too good to be true in this day and age when insurers are happy to arse f*ck you on the price and blame those big bad uninsured drivers ::)
