Motor insurers have been alarmed to learn that Bradford East MP David Ward plans to force a reduction in the unacceptably high motor insurance premiums his constituents face simply because they share the misfortune of living in Bradford East with a particularly dense concentration of crash4cash fraudmongers.

Professing disingenuous outrage at one constituent having been (mis)quoted £50k, and more plausible dissatisfaction that drivers with 30 years’ claims-free driving experience are unable to find affordable cover, Dave has frankly had enough and now intends to force insurers to charge less.

He has started a petition, which has already attracted an almost literally staggering 150 signatures. With just 98,500 more, he could even force a Parliamentary debate. Lib Dem MP for Bradford East since 2010, Ward has been the Bradford City Council member for Idle and Feckless since 1990.

He’s not in favour of high insurance premiums for young people, but did vote for increased tuition fees, suggesting he (quite realistically) considers it more important that young Bradfordians can afford to drive around the place than that they should waste years acquiring knowledge with which no future employer is ever likely to be impressed.

Potential future employers were unavailable for comment.


    What our clients say about us

    Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
