    equality is good lol
    You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.

    It's stupid. Males might be glad about this decision now, but then when something else unfair is done the tables will be turned again. No injustice is ever good.

    Having said that I think no insurance is worthwhile, I believe they are all a sort of scam.

    insurance is an ancient industry, the product: 'peace of mind'.

    you have to state the complete truth about the risk (more costly)
    because if a claim should arise-they will find a way out if they can or reduce such payout.

    i spend €30 per week on insurance, life, home, motor. all of them are compulsory..

    Life assurance is an interesting one.
    I stopped most of mine.
    What are they going to do?

    Nothing, and they haven't
