I have to admit I was really swept up by all the hoopla in the early days of the Norton 961 .

Usually , you can be sued in civil court if all else fails for the pension holders ?

This is for England and Wales.

Why might a creditor try to make you bankrupt?​

One or more of your creditors might want to make you bankrupt for any of the following reasons:

  • they know you have land or property which could be sold to pay back your debts
  • to punish you, because they believe you've been fraudulent or broken promises
  • to try to stop you from getting more credit in the future
  • they think you're being dishonest or hiding things of value, and want your financial affairs to be investigated
So assuming this was a forced bankruptcy then the investigations which can now take place will stop him from prevaricating and hiding his ill gotten gains. However it does cut out certain future legal actions by the creditors so it was not a lightly taken course of action. They must be certain there are funds around unaccounted for that will be worth the risk.

So, did he pay the pensioners? there was more than enough money to do so with the sale of the buildings. If he don't pay the pensioners it is looking like he will be sentenced, bankrupt or not.

I am going with "All of the above"

So now he’ll just bugger off to his safari park and remain in a life of luxury? His type needs a good dose of being left alone with his creditors…… :mad:

I think the most common route into bankruptcy is to self-declare.... once you have stuffed the mattresses to the brim that is.
