image for Insurance comparison website is being sued and taken to court
Compare the meerkat curry

A popular (well it is with the owners who get a fat commission) web-based comparison site is being taken to court by a group of irate pensioners in support stockings and chequered coats purchased from their local charity shops.

The group, led by an incensed consumer champion, Mrs Betty Scroats, have gone as far as to write to the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition and a nice man with the surname Farage, although they didn't go as far as to write to Nicholas Nasty of the British Nazi Party.

Mrs Scroats explained that she was leading a shopping expedition by her members of the CDA (Coffin Dodgers Association) when she went on the internet to a market comparison website.

She said she was bitterly disappointed to be confronted with an assortment of insurance and financial comparisons on the website.

She said: "We just wanted to compare the markets.

"Would we be better visiting Bury Market, Blackburn Market or taking a trip over the Pennines to Leeds Market? Or indeed renting a bus and heading to Bermondsey or Peckham Market?

"I am astounded this information was not available on a website that claims to Compare the Market."

No loud, fake, irritating Italians were available to break into spontaneous song, and even mere cats weren't available for comment.
