Frustrated Brits eager to take out insurance against politicians

FRUSTRATED Brits are eager to take out insurance against politicians, after the catastrophically bad way they have handled the COVID-19 crisis.

The insurance wish-list has politicians come third in the list, with online banking fraud top ­followed by bad romances.

Noisy neighbours and cheating partners were fourth and fifth.

Other bizarre things people would like to insure against ­include bad weather, trashy telly and lack of common sense, according to comparison site Money Expert.

Insurance expert Emma from Golden Leaves said, “There are some things in life you just can’t insure against, however,  the more conventional policies are key to peace of mind if we fall ill, have an accident or lose expensive items.”

When it comes to more serious cover, it’s no surprise that one in four people questioned in a poll of 2,000 adults, would like to have insurance related to Covid-19, especially against financial loss and disrupted travel plans.

Despite almost all of us having some form of policy, many of us don’t think insurance is worth it and one in ten have no idea what common terms like “excess” and “premium” actually mean. Shockingly, almost nobody bothers to read the small print all the way through.


Online banking fraud…….44%

Bad romances……………22%

Incompetent politicians….19%

Noisy neighbours…………16%

Cheating partner………….15%

Misuse of social media…..14%

Lack of common sense……14%

Career failure………………12%

Trashy TV…………………..8%

Bad weather………………..7%

      I wonder if the dishonest media was included in the list and would it be reported if it did.

      The best insurance against “Politicians Gone Bad,” is to vote them out and never let them back in.
