    People have been UN-accounted for. If they're unaccounted how do you know they exist?

    Oh is that what your X-ray eyes tell you does it? What was the fire like round the back? What was the fire like inside?

    ESFRS try to improve their image when they are still hurting the widows and families.

    Het a grip Des Prichatd. Grow a pair and tell Zurich to have some compassion.

    Or they can just pay up, seeing as they are the ones who are liable for that money, NOT Zurich, as you were told earlier.

    You really are incredibly thick Stevo. ESFRS are liable but their insurers, Zurich, indemnify their liability. The insurers don't want to pay out. Is that simple enough for you? Probably not.....
