Ugly people

Berkoff v Burchill [1996] 4 All ER 1008 at 1019 per Millett LJ:

It is a common experience that ugly people have satisfactory social lives – Boris Karloff is not known to have been a recluse – and it is a popular belief for the truth of which I am unable to vouch that ugly men are particularly attractive to women.

Trivia: Lord Millett has a Chinese name, 苗禮治 (miu4 lai5 ci4), presumably because he is now sitting on the Court of Final Appeal in Hong Kong.

    The HK Court of Final Appeal is like the Dubai of international soccer – players go there when they are near retirement to earn a couple of more years salaries.
