Today programme. "It's become a huge racket," he said. "The insurance companies are complicit in this. They should and could have said this is outrageous." Of course they didn't and they won't. A weasel wordsmith, with the name of Nick Starling, gave a limp response. He basically said that unless the practice was banned his members would carry on. Whether it was immoral, amoral or any other moral negative, he saw no reason to stop it until the law said no. And who would necessarily believe that his lot would stop then.
The whole practice stinks. There is now a whole set of people leaching off others so that a nefarious income can be made. Mr.Starling should live up to his name and peck at this grubby practice right now. I hope the government outlaws these rackeetering spivs, who help to increase insurance claims. Proper compensation for proper accidents is something nobody can gainsay. But bordering on criminal activity? That's something completely different.
