London mayor Boris Johnson has made an extraordinary appeal for billionaires' wives to sue for divorce in their city, as according to him England's capital city was the perfect place for injured spouses to take their wealthy other halves to the cleaners.
The call came in a speech to the CBI conference, in which Johnson also delivered a series of jibes at coalition policies.
"I would never encourage anyone to sue, but if one oligarch feels defamed by another oligarch, it is London's lawyers who apply the necessary balm to the ego," the Daily Star quoted Johnson, as saying.
"I have no shame in saying to the injured spouses of the world's billionaires if you want to take him to the cleaners... take him to the cleaners in London. Because London cleaners will be grateful for your business," he added.
