Jack Straw's campaign to stop frivolous car accidents claims - see post dated 28 June 2011 - seems to have scored an early success.
Because AXA - one of the UK's leading motor insurers - broke ranks the other day.
With an announcement that it would end the practice of introducing customers to personal injury lawyers - in return for a referral fee.
The move will put pressure on AXA's rivals - Royal Sun Alliance, Aviva, Direct Line and Churchill - to follow suit.
A spokesperson for AXA said:
"The industry needs to be tidied up, but it will not tidy itself up. This has to be stopped; this dysfunctional market cannot be allowed to continue."
So there you are - one up for Jack Straw.
One time leader of the National Union of Students (NUS) - but a venerable Labour war-horse these days.
How refreshing to see an MP setting party politicking aside - and focusing on something or real concern to local consitutuents.
