Asked the government to get rid of the bankrupcy laws then?
Although of course if you did that it would affect lots of people who no fault of their own get into those situations.
No easy answer.
Not everyone who goes bankrupt is the partner of a man who's worth millions. Many are owners of small businesses who go under because of economic circumstances which aren't their fault.
If Ms Abbington wanted to avoid being 'hit' (ha!) by this tax bill, and is a woman of an independent turn of mind who didn't want her partner to pay her bills, perhaps she should have cut her coat according to her cloth and not spent money she didn't have, or put money by to cover the bill when it arrived.
