Yes.. the average wage is not 230000..and as much as rules need to be in place.. they need to be changed. If you chose to move around EU..be prepared to pay for it..but in your own country you should not be subject to rules that force you to make an income that is not expected of people from other EU countries. Non cits should be subject to 18000 a year wage..and brits marrying people from out UK should maybe be subject to a 6month period to find work. Its much easier to allow floods of people and their familys in who are non EU...I dont think those who marry a person out of UK by sham marriage is anywhere near the levels of non citz flooding in.

Fingers crossed!!

Lets hope so. If the appeal is rejected the UKBA should do the decent thing and accept the decision.

They won't. Financial requirement is a crucial part of controlling family migration and they will fight tooth and nail to maintain the current levels, which have already seen a reduction of 1/3 in numbers migrating.

'Our family changes were brought in to make sure that spouses coming to live in the UK would not become reliant on the taxpayer for financial support and would be able to integrate effectively. We are pleased that the High Court judgment of 5 July supports the basis of our approach.

However, we believe matters of public policy, including the detail of how the minimum income threshold should operate, are for the Government and Parliament to determine, not the Courts. We also believe the detailed requirements of the policy are proportionate to its aims. We are therefore pursuing an appeal against the judgment.'

A reduction in migration because Brits can not marry outside uk. Not a reduction in non British families...the status quo needs to change.

But they can marry someone from outside the uk - they just need to meet the requirement...

Yes that's the option. Being eu means less requirements than being a british citizen..so while eu cits can bring family from out eu...with bare requirements..uk cits can not. i realise that is eu law..but the requirement is over what most people make and the eu route and british cits route are vastly different in requirements. That is the issue... british cits are worse off than their eu counter parts.

No..not with out a large backing campaign for better treatement of citizens..while asking the onus to be on people not married to brits.. to provide heavily for themselves before having access to the UK. It's crazy.
