heather203x100.jpgIf like me you share the twin obsessions of the Beatles and American politics, you might enjoy this example where the two "Come Together".

It seems that the woman whose evidence was branded “inaccurate but also less than candid” in places "wholly exaggerated" or "make-belief”, who may have attempted to defraud her husband over the mortgage on a property and has "an explosive and volatile character" and who could provide no evidence of her claim of giving 80-90% of her income to charity does have a couple of things going for her.

Heather Mills has two celebrity video character witnesses proudly displayed on her website, Richard Branson and Hillary Clinton.

It's been said of Senator Clinton that she reminds too many men of their first wife. Being on the side of Heather Mills won't help dispel that impression.

Watch the endorsement for yourself here.

Is this really all there is going on in the BBC Newsnight political arena ?

Well, we should all think about the children in divorce and in this case, Beatrice. The BBC just actually screened a useful film on this subject - 'The worst thing ever?' See

We should of course remember the children of divorce, in this case, Beatrice. And the BBC just screened a very useful film on the topic. See

In common with all your contributors, I did not hear any of the evidence first hand but I am perfectly prepared to accept that the court considered it sensibly and intelligently. I am happy that Sir Paul's reputation emerges unscathed.

My advice to Heather is to continue with the wonderful charitable work, keep up the public profile if she needs to but, as regards the divorce, sit down and shut up. It is done and dusted and 23 million is not a bad result.

What a lot of trash the pubic seem to be interested in - or are thought to be.

The correlation of Branson & Clinton with Heather Mills was not as amusing as the writer might have thought it was...
They are more important issues to talk about...
