Lobbying rules are part of the problem. Rather than trying to rewrite the remit of the parliamentary standards committee, they would be better making lobbying rules more robust. And why the heck are sitting MPs able to take paid employment with a third party? Is the parliamentary business plus their constituency not enough to keep them busy?The richer people are, and the more they have already, then the more free stuff they get! Illogical.
If I have to claim on insurance the premium will shoot up next year. And if I try another company, they always ask if I've had a claim in the last 5 years.
If it ends up just needing repainting, it may be cheaper to pay for it myself. Can't do it myself these days
I will post a picture if I ever get the time to get it off my ipad.
They must have thought they had a “gotcha” for insurance fraud!We photographed everything. When speaking on the phone regarding the water damage to a laptop and expensive camera we organised to upload photos. The operated asked how we were going to take photos on a damaged camera! Luckily we said we had iPads and phones which were nowhere near the flooding.
Ah yes, pet insurance. The only time I’ve close to being rude to the poor beggar on the end of the phone “who are only doing their job”.Insurance companies make me so mad. They take your money and the minute you try and claim they try and get out of paying. I've never been able to make a claim that paid out on house insurance - always an "oh but read the tinier than tiny small print". Critical illness insurance - insured for everything except the illness that you get. Travel insurance that you find out you have to pay up front when you're ill abroad and claim it back later (thankfully that was in NZ where they treat people like humans and with kindness and I then thankfully found out treatment was free and not thousands of pounds). Don't get me started on pet insurance.
I worked in insurance as well for years and just can't stomach how they treat people who are having serious disasters. Strato I hope you get all this sorted with the least amount of stress.
We had our flu jabs a couple of weeks ago and our Covid boosters this week. Nurse who did our flu jabs wouldn`t give us the covid jab at the same time, she said to wait a week or so. Must admit I`ve had no side effects from the covid jab but last year the flu jab knocked me off colour for a few days yet this year it hasn`t affected me at all.Went for my flu jab this morning and was offered the booster at the same time - I nearly took their hand off,
Straight in - 2 nursers one each arm- counted to 3 and both jabbed at same time. Waited 15 mins and out
