Leave money to the Tories? You must be mad.

Tories lose £8.3m bequest battle
The Conservatives have lost a battle to keep an £8.3m bequest by a man whose son described him as delusional.

Drugs mogul Branislav Kostic, who died in 2005, wrote his will in the 1980s after saying Margaret Thatcher would save the world from "satanic monsters". But his only son Zoran, 50, contested the bequest at the High Court, saying his father was "deluded and insane" and he was entitled to the entire estate. The judge upheld a 1974 will made at a time when nobody disputed Branislav Kostic had full capacity, and under which Zoran was the sole beneficiary.

The Conservatives say they have not touched the money. The party's barrister Andrew Simmonds QC referred to Mr Kostic's "great and long-standing affection for the Conservative Party and his admiration for Mrs Thatcher". Clare Montgomery QC, representing Mr Kostic's son, said the Conservatives "only benefited because the testator became mentally ill". Mr Simmonds said that while it was accepted that Mr Kostic had a delusional disorder it was not accepted that this made him incapable of making a proper will. (emphasis mine)
Jeez. What a bunch of money-grabbing arseholes!
