Lucky Heather?

Having just watched Heather Mill's performance outside The High Court, all I can say that Paul is well rid. £24.3 Million for a few years of marriage is a nice little earner for this clearly hyper individual. She says she is pleased with it, but given her rant about lawyers etc, it seems she expected a lot more. A further £600,000 to her solicitors may have been well spent.

As someone who dealt with divorce law for many years, I am disturbed by such sums being awarded for marriages of short duration. Heather may not feel she has been well-treated but regardless of her demonisation by the press, and any alleged treatment by Macca, she should be very grateful for her good fortune.

What matters most, of course, is the provision for the couple's daughter; the financial settlement is a separate matter.
