Citing an 'overwhelming lust for life' that makes him want to live for today, Adam Kenton from Ware, East Herts, today cancelled his car insurance with Swiftcover, despite an intention to not only continue driving but to do so 'with liquor and drugs'. When questioned on a decision that on the face of it appears rash as well as illegal, Mr Kenton dismissed the entire concept of insurance. "I'm worth a million in prizes," he said. "And let's face it no stingy insurance company is going to pay out to that level anyway.
Upon being asked what first prompted him give up the insurance, Mr Kenton explained he had wanted to give up the policy ever since paying for it in April. "Your skin starts itching once you buy the gimmick," he said. "And just because people say you have to have it, doesn't make it true except in a court of law." Mr Kenton, who drives a Pontiac GTO, hopes that others will follow his example and demonstrate their attitude to life by cancelling their Swiftcover policies. "I'm just a modern guy," he said. "So I'm sure a lot of others will see things my way too."
