The Anonymous Widower

More Money Than Sense

That is all you can say about this story in the Standard. Here’s the first couple of paragraphs.

A multi-millionaire gambling addict who lost £2m in one evening is suing The Ritz casino for allegedly “taking advantage” of her gambling addiction.

Nora Al-Daher, 50, frittered away her millions on the club’s punto banco table in just a few hours in April 2012,

But the glamorous Omani politician’s wife says it was all the club’s fault for failing to stop her playing and wants her money back.

The lawyers must be laughing at her like crazy, as they trouser expensive fees for a case that she will probably lose.

I can certainly hear C laughing and hinting that a fool and their money are soon parted.
