    I don't think we'll ever get back to sensible insurance, even if they get rid of this crash for cash carry on .

    I've been getting some mental quotes on some mundane cars recently!

    Actually tell a lie I just checked and it's just over 700, still not bad though.

    Just shop around, then shop around some more.
