I really don't know what to say here.....the comments at the bottom of the piece do make me wonder however if the divorce included a section of "from reality".....lets face it, a mere £35k pa and the sheer anguish of travelling with the great unwashed.....like me for example.....my heart goes out to the poor girl it really does

The stupid bint was whingeing because despite the millions she received, the daughters' allowance is 'only' £35k a year. This is why she is now bleating on about beatrice having to fly 'b' class (her words) instead of 'a' class like her dad.

Now I may be old fashioned; but don't parents usually pay for their kids travel... or are the millions she is getting not enough to cover the cost of her childs travel after she has bought herself handbags and shoe(s)?

How will she cope with only £24.3 million to her name, the poor mite. She's spent £500K already, worrying about it all.

Gosh, is he ever well rid of that one?

Is she is still upset about it being in the media? If so, no doubt we'll hear all about it soon, whether we want to or not.

Paul McCartney has my full respect after this episode and appears to be a real gentleman. He made a generous offer which was turned down.

We should also remember that he suffered the loss of his first wife Linda - I hope he comes up trumps again in the future. As one who grew up in the 1960s he and the other Beatles were very much part of my formative teenage years!

Yup and the poor buggah will have to get by on the piddling 820 million he has left.

God I hope that this hideous bint goes away now, sadly I suspect not. I expect to see her in OK/Hello this week or next. "My B class divorce settlement", for which she will no doubt be paid another small fortune.

Leg

When that news first came out I thought he was pulling her leg, just after she got it over.

But I soon realized that, that WOODEN do.

No doubt the first thing she will do to celebrate will be to get LEGLESS.

Bless her.

No offense to any women members, but Groucho Marks once said "A woman is only a woman, but a cigar is a bloomin good smoke!!"


Cheers

I'd like to grab her wooden leg and beat her soundly around the head with it. She's a money grabbing, calculating, gold digger.

Couldn't agree more.

Just as an aside, the performance as viewed on the News, was, well "in a class of it's own".....presumably the reason ITN decided to lead with it..iin contrast to the other minor events in the world such as Tibet and the little matter of a US Bank going splat....and the effects over here....and Lord Grade wonders why ITV is in the sh£$e ?.

I mis-read the Beeb report at first - "surrounded by a media scrum" - I thought it said "media scum"!

What is the matter with these people that this is considered so newsworthy? The finest thing they could do is to relegate the greedy arrogant bitch to one column inch on the back page.

Any original wooden leg jokes?

£24.3m is a lot for McCartney to stump up

Ozzy,
You couldn't have put it better--the sooner she b*****s off from this country the better-poor little rich girl--she knew all along what she was after--hopefully SirPaul will find GENUINE happiness next time round and not a CASH COW!

Probably felt she would be left out on a limb settling for less.

I wonder how she would have felt if the shoe had been on the other foot

GMTV

When she started ranting & raving on GMTV a while back, and the press started calling her "unstable", a little bird told me Macca had phoned in to offer the advise "just shove a beermat under her foot".

Well, consider it the jetsam of a rebound relationship. Poor Paul didn't have a leg to stand on.
