TV chef White called an 'idiot' as he loses case
MARCO Pierre White, pictured, the celebrity chef, was branded a "dishonest idiot" by a High Court judge in Britain, as a "wholly misconceived" £174,000 (€204,000) damages claim over a restaurant was thrown out.
Mr White had been seeking compensation from his two former business partners, claiming he had been cheated out of his share of profits from the Yew Tree Inn in Hampshire.
A judge ordered TV chef White to pay the costs of the case, saying: "Mr White has been a bit of an idiot and it may be he has been a dishonest idiot on top. He is a wealthy man and brought wholly misconceived proceedings." (© Daily Telegraph, London)
