Some background reading on cock tax for Shan Brown

Shan, this might come in handy soon

One of Britain’s most bitter divorce battles arrived at the High Court with the estranged wife of businessman Scot Young telling the court she would “settle” for 300 million ($582 million) of what she claims is his multibillion-pound fortune.

Rex Howling, QC, acting for Michelle Young, alleged that Scot Young secretly channelled 100,000 to his estranged wife and the couple’s two children through a high-profile businessman in order to pretend he was penniless and could not support them.

Michelle Young claims Scot Young has hidden his fortune abroad, and said maintenance payments supposedly given to her by the unnamed friend of her estranged husband in fact came from the sale of “chattels” from one of the couple’s former luxury properties.  

Justice Philip Moor made clear that Michelle Young was making “very serious allegations” and she should be careful not to do so without good evidence.

The four-week hearing is expected to hear from several high-profile business leaders whom Scot Young, 51, has said paid hundreds of thousands of pounds to provide for him, Michelle Young and their two daughters during their bitter seven-year legal battle.

You’ve taken the wedding band off Shan.  But you’re also a divorce lawyer.

I bet you’re just getting all your ducks in a row, aren’t you?

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
