Buses figure strongly in insurance. Independent Insurance had a bus. Neil Utley has a bright red bus, presumably to drive to meetings in when he is not roaring up on his trusty Harley Davidson. Now we learn that insurance start-up Oxygen has a bus - albeit a metaphoric one.

Nigel Barton, Oxygen Holding's chief executive, describes his company as a "free-thinking bus". Very Summer of Love. But then, Backchat thinks there definitely a bit of a new age feel discernable in Barton. There's the wild red locks. And don't forget those turquoise glasses that he owns. Austin Powers eat your heart out.
