    Tough one. Might even win although he probably deserves a boot in the baws. Money can be the root of all evil

    Having been a lawyer, I suspect her will win.
    I have the most wonderfully insightful and sublime hifi that it would embarrass me to put in writing exactly what it is.

    I suspect in a few years the parents will die under suspicious circumstances and he'll eventually be found guilty and end up in prison.

    So do I. Instead of being a 'waster', at his age the son should get a job and support himself, regardless of his father's wealth. I think it's a disgrace.

    He's already had £1.5 million off them. That amount of money would more than do most people for life, no need to work again. What did he do with it?

    helped him with his mortgage, to buy a BMW, and also to help out his own friends and his partner's family.

    Helped him with his mortgage? What did he buy? Blenheim Palace?

    I've got £1.5 million, I give a couple of grand to the wife's family, buy a house and a car - Oh and that's it! I've done the lot in and I still owe some on the mortgage - I mean seriously WTF?
