According to The Sun, the judge had the following to say of the Sir Paul McCartney v Heather Mills divorce case: "In her letter of 31 January 2008 the wife computes her reasonable needs for herself and Beatrice at £3,250,000 p.a. which amounts on a Duxbury capitalised basis to £99,480,000. She seeks between £8m and £12.5m for a home in London, £3m to purchase a property in New York, £500,000 to £750,000 to purchase an office in Brighton, a transfer to her of a mortgage in favour of the husband over her sister's (Fiona) Hove property, transfer of property order re a Southampton property owned by the husband in which Sonya Mills lives, and relief in respect of chattels. Further, the wife asks the court 'to place a significant monetary value on compensation for loss of earnings, contribution and conduct." The judge went on to describe Sir Paul's evidence, saying: "He expressed himself moderately though at times with justifiable irritation, if not anger. He was consistent, accurate and honest... But I regret to have to say I cannot say the same about the wife’s evidence. Having watched and listened to her give evidence, having studied the documents, and having given in her favour every allowance for the enormous strain she must have been under (and in conducting her own case), I am driven to the conclusion that much of her evidence, both written and oral, was not just inconsistent and inaccurate but also less than candid. Overall she was a less than impressive witness." Despite this, Heather's walking away with £24.3million (€31m).
