Non-EU migrant spouses expected to support British population




Rules that came into force a year ago require any British citizen who wants to sponsor their non-European spouse's visa to be able to show they earn at least £18,600 a year, rising to £22,400 to sponsor a child, and a further £2,400 for each further child.


A Home Office spokesman said the rules had been designed to make sure those coming to the UK to join their spouse or partner would not become a burden on the taxpayer and would be well enough supported to integrate effectively.

"High-value migrants would not be refused because their British spouse or partner was not employed," he said.

"They can meet the income threshold by having cash savings of £62,500 or through their own private income, for example from investments. We have also introduced greater flexibility for those holding investments to liquidate them into cash in order to meet the rules." - bbc

The deal is simply this.  Either the British spouse is capable of supporting the non-EU spouse, or the non-EU spouse is capable of supporting the British spouse....and economy.  Besides this being pretty much racist as it does not apply to EU citizens, it can also be seen as an effort to acquire ‘foreign financial aid’ from the excluded whom want to be included.

This is basically charity or 'foreign aid' that is being expected from 'high-value' migrant spouses that, in effect, subsidises the responsibilities and continuing fiscal irresponsibilities of the British elite.

If you look at the income threshold expected of migrant spouses of British citizens - £62,500 savings or private income or investments - one might not be blamed for thinking that the British government are hoping that migrant spouses can contribute to the support of the British economy, government, and people as opposed to the British and EU citizens themselves. 



How many Brits have £62,500gbp in savings, or likely to have that in a lifetime for goodness sakes. This is quite the impoverished nation when you look at the people.  For instance, a £50 note is not something you see very often - whereas in singapore, $50 is as common as cockroaches. This is basically charity or 'foreign aid' that is being expected from 'high-value' migrant spouses that, in effect, subsidises the responsibilities and continuing fiscal irresponsibilities of the British elite.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this experience....so here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
