    Default Motor Insurance - Oh what a surprise

    Just been on the news that motor insurers can no longer charge women less for motor insurance than men - so will they be bringing blokes insurance down to the same level as the girls? Guess what...................

    Right - I thought they were giving the ladies a reduction because they are supposed to be safer drivers - not because they are female!

    It's all about equality. But in reality most of us will be worse off, either directly or indirectly. We'll be worse off as a family.

    The question now has to be asked why are younger drivers charged more? Or even drivers that have had accidents? Not sure if its related, but alot of european countries insure a car and not a driver.

    It is all about profit. Remember they assess risk when offering you insurance. I will wait to see if someone does a comparrison same details male and female and see who gets the better deal??

    If they're no longer allowed to 'discriminate' on grounds of gender, how long till there's a similar ruling preventing them 'discriminating' on age?
