As far as I'm concerned its designed to make you BETTER off than you were in the event of an accident/theft. In that case you may as well go out and buy several hundred quids worth of lottery tickets, there's a bigger prize and probably just as much odds that you'll actually use it (ok perhaps that's a bit of an exageration).
I agree.
