Free Money to be had by all and sundry simply from once having been romantically involved with someone who now has a bit of dosh in the bank.

…a new Supreme Court ruling today [WED] suggests that there is Free Money to be had by all and sundry simply from once having been romantically involved with someone who now has a bit of dosh in the bank.

For this, we have Kathleen Wyatt to thank.

Kathleen is now 55 but in her distant youth, she was once married to a multi-millionaire windfarm entrepreneur. Well, to be strictly accurate, she was once married to a penniless New Age traveller who went on to become a multi-millionaire windfarm entrepreneur many years later. But let’s not let mere facts and the correct chronology get in the way of a good story.

So, Kathleen got married to Dale Vince a lifetime ago in December 1981 when they were both living on benefits. They went on to have a child in 1983 but separated a year later. Eight years on, in 1992, they finally got round to getting divorced but, since they were both still living on state handouts, there weren’t any assets to divide and they both went their separate ways.

Kathleen went on to have a new relationship and more children with a new partner but has struggled financially all her life. Dale, on the other hand, after separating from Kathleen as a penniless 22-year-old, did rather better.

He remarried, had more children and, a few years later in 1996, he launched the world’s first green energy company, Ecotricity, which went on to be a phenomenal financial success and is currently valued at upwards of £90million.

So, all’s well that ends well, you might think. But you’d be wrong. Despite their marriage having only lasted three years, Kathleen decided that, 18 years after they had split up, it was time she laid claim to what is rightfully hers: a £1.9 million share of her ex-husband’s millions.

The fact that his business did not even exist until years after they were separated, or that she made absolutely zero contribution to that business, were clearly not deemed to be relevant issues for the Supreme Court. Neither was the fact that she waited the best part of two decades before turning up to make her demands.

Important to note

Of course, she hasn’t actually got her hands on his cash just yet. After years of court decisions, from the High Court to the Appeal Court and now the Supreme Court, she has still won only the right to have her case heard by a judge in the Family Division of the High Court, who will decide if she is indeed entitled to “financial remedy” as her lawyers claim.

But…why the fuck do we need a judge to tell us whether this is just, or legal? Isn’t it fucking obvious?

P.S. Don’t get married guys

Also…the guy is the one described in this article. Basically his money has come off the back of the public paying higher power bills to subsidise his useless windmills, and the pensioners that died of hypothermia because of a fear of higher power bills causing them to not heat their houses sufficiently.

TL;DR they’re both cnuts. And I wonder who is paying her legal fees.

    I’m aghast. The Court ruled that she had a right to pursue ex post facto lifetime spousal maintenance based on perceptions of lack of child support.
    “Lord Wilson said a factor that had to be taken into consideration was the contribution of the parties to the welfare of the family including by looking after the home or caring for the family.”
    “He said: ‘Consistently with the potentially life-long obligations which attend a marriage, there is no time-limit for seeking orders for financial provision or property adjustment for the benefit of a spouse following divorce.'”

    The undisputed fact is that Vince did not make much money until after 2001, i.e. after his son turned 18 and moved out of his mother’s house and into his father’s house.

    I saw this story and had to share it, but until the family court speaks its wisdom and justice, we have little concrete to react to.

    I have heard of gold digging but, this is beyond belief. I thought final meant final. So much for legal protection. I would have thought the judiciary would be the last to go.

    One errant thought, wasn’t it last week that a veternarian neede to renegotiate his sett;ement to allow his retirement. She had alimony and hadn’t found work in ten years. I don’t think that they were married that long.

    I can see the advice to not get married. I have to warn people that Canada is going down the road of enforcing common law marriages. That may be universal in time.

    This sort of thing has been upheld in other places. Think it was Canada and then again Colorado. Also this allows other judges to rule in her favor. So if this guy wins this time in one legal district doesn’t mean the next guy will be safe. In fact it means the next guy in this position has no way to appeal the decision

    A judge told me I had no Constitutional protections they sent me to jail for contempt of court when I said it was bullshit.

    Married men and formally married men are slaves to women and the state. Single men are just slaves to the state and then only of you make to much money.

    This is one thing I hate about some big businesses. Like the name of your new article “Privatised gains, socialised losses”. There are some large industries which take big govt subsidies although they’re making huuuge profits–it happens in the US and I wouldn’t be surprised if the same happened in the UK. Quite unfair.
