The tipping point

Published: 5th June 2007 - Category: Bastow Blogs - Author: Lynne Bastow

Just when you start to feel sorry for rich men getting divorced in this country, Alan Miller pulls a rabbit out of the hat and appeals to the European Court of Human Rights.

He is appealing against the House of Lords judgement that confirmed that his ex-wife Melissa could retain the £5 million awarded to her after a marriage which lasted less than 3 years. He is appealing on the basis that Judges in this country have such a wide discretion in matrimonial matters that it undermines his human right to property so reports The Telegraph.

Good luck to him. This Government never seems to fare well in dealings with the European Courts. Remember the fishing quotas and the Spanish fishing vessels using our landings and the compensation we were ordered to pay them? Neither do we do well in the Eurovision song contest but no doubt this is a coincidence.

Have we reached a tipping point? When both Judges and rich men are asking for the law to be changed one wonders whether Gordon Brown will take note and do something.
