Actually they are not insolvent, they just decided to pay players less. This meant some players left and others had to come in who were happy with less money.

Just because they did not continually throughout the season pay players as much as they did at the beginning, make them insolvent. Players are on a non contract basis and come and go.

Harrow Borough this season may have started the season paying x amount on wages, let's say £1000 per week. If over the course of the season with player changes, management changes etc etc they ended up paying let's say £500 a week, should the league kick them out because they didn't continue to pay £1000?

It is totally up to the club to pay what they want.

Let's say a team from the Middx County league who pay no wages got promoted a few times and spent any money they had on off the field issues (legal fees, ground improvements etc), when they told the southern league at the beginning of the season that they were not going to pay players any money, should the southern league say no sorry that means you cannot play.

My point being, it doesn't matter what a club pays in wages. They can spend as little or as much as they want and this can change through the season.

Staines decided to spend not very much money on the players. This meant they were relegated because the team were not good enough. Relegation is their punishment. Had Staines Town stayed up paying no wages you wouldn't have a problem with them.
