Well I do expect the banking industry to come out firing with all guns on this issue, but as I understand it there is a large number of companies in
the UK that have been waiting on this type of precedent to bring similar cases. So I feel this has the potential to get interesting.

I do agree with you about the repaying debt... but for some, like me, it is the proof that I've been lied to, that I've been scammed again by the
banking system. It's not necessarily about how to get away with NOT repaying debt, but as I see it about removing the scams these companies run.
Just look at the anger caused over a sink plug that one minister put through their expenses in the UK.. the amount was not the issue (£0.98).. but
the proof they were scamming the system was important, and it was enough to create a huge wave of anger, and that anger has not gone away.
I see this as having that same potential, which may end up at nothing, however I feel it's usually the little things that cause the most problems.

I'm hear your pain and glad that it is behind you now. I was miss-sold insurance to cover me if anything happened, paid for it for years until my
accountant informed me that the policy didn't cover self employed people like myself. Was pretty p*ssed as at the time I had no legal recourse to
reclaim the money I had paid out.
