Sir Michael now offers a Sat Nav

Having written to you some time ago with regard to the “Over 50 Life Cover” from Sun Life Axa and which is promoted using Sir Michael Parkinson.

Having expressed my disappointment in my earlier letter that the old and vulnerable were being bombarded in ads, you will perhaps understand my amusement at receiving in the post my personal invitation to pay 23 pence per day for Sir Michael’s product!

I am however disappointed to note that my “welcome gift” of a clock, for joining the scheme has been dropped by Axa, so that I would no longer have the satisfaction of seeing my life ebbing away.

This has now been replaced by a Sat Nav, which presumably my Executors can pass to the Hearse driver and ensure I finish in the right hole!

Oh Sir Michael - you can’t be that short - and if it’s boredom you could become President of Yorkshire Cricket Club!
