Pecunia Vincit Omnia

I have received the following press release from Messrs. Venal & Grabbit, Solicitors:


London, 14th July 2011: Venal & Grabbit wish to express their wholehearted support for the initiative of their rival firm Mishcon de Reya in launching pre-nuptial agreement insurance today.

Senior Partner Edgar Venal said: "I can fully understand people wanting to protect their assets from their spouse. I mean, 'love' is all very well, but it's hardly as important as your wealth, is it? Accordingly, any idea that will encourage the better off to ensure that money stays with the deserving few is a good one. We are only disappointed that we didn't think of the idea first, but you can rest assured that the Head of our Strategy and Scheming Department is now looking for alternative employment.

"We will, of course, be launching a similar product, as soon as we can find insurers who will pay us a suitably high commission."
