The perfect Xmas gift

I contemplated doing a post suggesting that my book Do Your Own Divorce would make a good Xmas present for your spouse (gift wrapped by Amazon, of course), but I decided against it, as I judged that it would be in bad taste. Well, perhaps my judgement was wrong. Vanessa Lloyd Platt's firm Lloyd Platt & Co are reportedly offering "divorce gift vouchers", calling them the "must have" Christmas present for unhappy couples. The vouchers, which cost from £125 plus VAT for a half hour interview, have apparently been purchased by "husbands, wives, mistresses, and people using them to suggest to friends and family members that they should get a divorce".

Who says all the good law marketing ideas come from the other side of the Atlantic?


  1. John, even I would not have gone so far to have done this. Good publicity for the fragrant one!
