Motor insurance: Speculation mounts over letter bomber

Friday, 09 February 2007

The flurry of letter bombs sent out to many companies and authorities affiliated with motoring has been causing a stir in the UK.

Speculation is mounting that a driver with a grudge is responsible for sending the amateur explosives inside jiffy bags to the Driver Vehicle Licensing Authority in Swansea, as well as congestion charge headquarters in London.

No one has come forward to claim responsibility for the attacks so far but they are being investigated by the National Coordinator for Domestic Extremism while the home secretary Dr John Reid pleads for the public to avoid speculation.

Chris Skelton, from Motoring Voice, said many motorists feel victimised by the UK government.

He said: "I feel targeted. I feel picked on by the government. Everywhere I go there is a camera pointing at me."

He says this is due to people feeling angry at the government's motoring policies which include congestion charging and cowboy clampers. One way to save money though is through searching for cheap car insurance.
