  • Stuck for a gift for your husband/wife this Christmas? Instead of giving them Jamie Oliver's 'Cooking for geezers' wrapped in years of burning resentment, buy them divorce vouchers.

    Happy Christmas darling...

  • No, Anonymous really is suggesting the vouchers instead of the Jamie Oliver book, I think.

  • Ha! Finally it outs...Divorce lawyers have long tried to con the public that they are some maligned species of angel, helping unhappy couples to a mutually-agreeable solution...whereas, as practically anyone who has been through a 'normal' divorce (ie one not involving squillions, where a bill the size of a planet is disguised in a 'win' of millions) knows only too well, divorce lawyers delight in squeezing every last penny out of both parties, stoking personal anguish to achieve greater billable hours. They have no incentive but to make divorce as bitter, lengthy and arduous as possible.

    Lloyd Platt's witless publicity stunt has indeed bought her publicity, but let's hope the next time she 'graces' the couch on BBC Breakfast blathering about mediation, some clever spark will remind her of this odious scheme.

  • This stinks. It's not even funny, just a desperately sad and sordid publicity stunt.

  • Cheap stunt. A quick look at the website confirms this. Big on trashy self-publicity. Very short on class.

  • Christmas is probably the right time to hand them out , just when the stress factor is at 99 on Christmas Day but the vouchers should come with72 cooling off period, also are refunds available just in case , you know the marraige for unforessen reasons is patched up .. ? seriously How tacky can you get ? I'd sooner pick potatoes . I don't think solictors know anything about marketing, frankly

  • A stunt - yes. But a quick squizz at the site reveals some quite horrible statistics in terms of fee earner to support staff ratios. More work (or fewer support) appear to be essential.

  • I wonder if Loud Pratt will regret “some have commented that this is a ‘blinder’ of a present and very different from the normal electronic gadgets they were envisaging”,

    Apart from being so desperately try-hard to use 'blinder', even in a quote, Loud Pratt might consider that Wilde's view that 'not being talked about is the only thing worse than being talked about' is not necessarily true, luv.

    Own goal? I think so.
