All the fun of the fair

It may not be everybody's idea of a fun day out, but Austria is to host the world's first "divorce fair" in Vienna on the 27th to 28th October. Exhibitors will apparently include lawyers, mediators, estate agents, "life-crisis experts", private detective firms (that should be interesting) and DNA laboratories offering paternity tests(!). The organisers appear to have thought of everything, even reserving Saturday for men and Sunday for women, so couples can "avoid awkward encounters and retain a degree of anonymity".

The question is: where Austria leads, will England follow?
