The British Jewish community is doing its best to keep the rest of the nation amused with front-page scandals popping up at regular intervals.
The Maccaba 'Indecent Proposal' case has now become the longest-running slander case in the history of the country. The jury will finally retire to consider its verdict next week.
Not to worry: now there's wicked stepmother Yvonne Sherrington to titillate us instead. Her husband Richard died in a car crash in 2001, seven weeks after he changed his will to leave his £10 million estate to her alone. His three children from his first marriage were totally excluded, and received a total of less than £60,000 from his insurance policy.
Dahlia, Donna and Ramon Sherrington are now suing Yvonne for breaching an understanding with their father that she would look after them in the event of his death. They also claim the will was not properly drawn up and did not reflect his true intentions.
So far, it appears that the marriage was on the brink of collapse; that Yvonne's step-children never accepted her and did not attend their father's second wedding; and that the father continued to talk to his first wife almost daily. There are conflicting reports about the quality of the father's relationship with his children; clearly there was some tension after he divorced their mother.
