Family Immigration

The UK Government have announced intention to amend the Immigration rules further in respect of family immigration attempting to restrict the scope and application of Artilce 8 ECHR rights. Whilst we all know Artilce 8 is not an absolute right, the Government will meet a hostile reaction if they pursue this attempt to qualify the right through primary legislation. To attempt to do so attacks the very principle of an independent judiciary. The Home Secretary has announced that proposals afoot focus on the financial ability of people to support their families. So firstly, we have an income to be shown of £18600, with increments of approx £2400 per child thereafter. There are to be further attempts at defining being British. Lets watch what happens..............
