Whiplash Claims – The Truth
It seems perverse for a government that has a stated aim of reducing the public sector that there is a never ending diatribe (much ill informed) on whiplash claims, health and safety etc which is manifestly within the private sector.
One hears no comment from MP’s or ministers about the effect of the yet to be implemented reforms on private sector jobs which will be catastrophic and yet now another consultation before the impact has been assessed. Is the public sector going to pick these up or will that just be a further demand on benefits, as there wasn’t much positive news about economic growth in the recent Autumn statement.
Of course though the propaganda that the great British general public will benefit from a reduction in whiplash claims leading to reduced premiums is pedaled out at every opportunity. Does anyone in government actually believe the insurers savings, from a reduction in whiplash claims, will be passed on? Perhaps they should consult those who deal with them on a daily basis; the money will flow out of the UK economy to a tax haven of choice.
So who will benefit from a reduction in whiplash claims?
Some very wealthy offshore funds and individuals at the expense of the justice system and injured victims. What was the point of Jackson and then LASPO if this was the ultimate destination. It wouldn’t be Cameron and co just making it up as they go along and wasting time and money in the process.
One wouldn’t of thought that the huge and wealthy insurance industry needed to have gratuitous representation by the Government at every opportunity, surely they can pay and look after their own interests.
Did the coalition with all the myriad economic difficulties facing the UK really get elected on a platform to consult on this every week no wonder they are so bereft of ideas and imagination.
