    I can’t see any future for this country or, more importantly, for me …. this ad first aired last year I think, then disappeared only to return now. It is sickening.

    Equally, aren’t Wonga a partner/relation to UNUM and they now have credence (if that’s the word) at Newcastle football club.

    The nasty tide of ethnic cleansing continues to flood in ………………………….

    I first saw this ad last night. I wonder if people realise that they are sleepwalking into having to pay out for insurance against being sick. I wonder if they realise they will have a fight on their hands if they do become sick.
