All of this is already happened, and the company has been ordered by  
the court to wind up. But the directors are dragging their heels about  
it/generally being cocks - causing pain to the (now ex-)staff and the  
creditors. So its now a matter of trying to 1) get the director struck  
off, and 2) see if we can't get their limited liabilities voided for  
fun. The best way will be to get all the creditors to chip in together  
for split the lawers fees (as numerous people have pointed out, no one  
will take this on for free).

Thanks the recomemdations.
