At least it will if this fathead at the European Court of Justice gets her way.
Kokott advised the Court to declare invalid the provisions allowing for the taking into account
of statistical differences between the risks of insuring men and women when setting premiums. She said it was incompatible with the principle of equal treatment for men and women.
Women are often given cheaper life insurance because on average they live longer and cheaper car insurance because they have fewer and less serious crashes on average.
Kokott said that if her view is adopted by the ECJ it should only apply to future policies and a transition period of three years should be implemented to ensure stability in the insurance sector.
Yup, really. She wants to abolish reality in favour of gender equity.
And guess what kiddies? There\’s absolutely fuck all any of us can do about it. Can\’t vote against it, can\’t change government to get it changed, can\’t do sweet FA.
Can we leave yet?
