Arse and shit and fuck and damn and blast. The Financial Ombudsgerkin has decided I have no grounds for complaint. Fuckers.

From reading the three page letter, they think Zurich have behaved reasonably and I'm making a fuss about nothing.  >:( I think I need to borrow TEH SHUVEL and TEH BEAR. And some of Mr Gates's thermite.

I'm quite gobsmacked to be honest.

If a case worker has made a decision, you do have the right to go back, re-state your case and request the Ombudsman look at it.

I am afraid that I am not in the least surprised.

Every "watchdog" I have ever experienced seems to be put in place to give the impression that it reins in the excesses of big business, but in fact rarely does. Their true purpose is obfuscation. The list includes the Ombudsman, the Standards Board for England, the Disability Rights Commission and the Planning Inspectorate.

You have my sympathy.

And the DRC were a lot more useful than what's come since them... :(  They at least wrote some bloody useful "practitioner" guidance but they'd only take on cases they felt they could 100% win.  Bert Massie took it on believing it'd be worth something poor sod.

I would recommend emailing Brignall & King from the Guardian's Money pages, they often do good work with this sort of thing:

Good luck.

And now the legal people via my insurance company have decided not to take the case. They say it's probably not winnable but I think they mean "we've just realised you're trying to get us to sue ourselves." So tonight I will be downloading small claims forms and then I will immolate them all.

Oh, dilemma. The owner of the flat upstairs has put £100 through my door to cover the excess on my policy. So now do I accept that and write off my other losses, or do I go ahead with small claims? Fuck.
