Worshipping Mammon

... sticking with The Times, the report today is that Paul McCartney and Heather Mills "have agreed a package worth in the region of £50 million", but that they can't agree upon the scope of a confidentiality clause. Apparently, Ms Mills wants to be free to disclose details both of the marriage and the settlement (why?), whereas Sir Paul wants complete confidentiality.

What seems to be exciting The Times the most though (and I have seen this elsewhere, including in the legal media) is the possibility that this could be the biggest contested divorce settlement to date, beating the £48 million that Mrs Charman received. I have to say that I find the sight of lawyers and media salivating over the size of a divorce settlement particularly unedifying.
