In July Teresa May and the conservative party decided to announce a price for love,this price is £18,600,($30,000)if you have not been earning this amount you are no longer to see your wife or child,the following is a recent response by the labour party.
That’s why it might be fairer and more effective to insist that anyone sponsoring a partner into this country deposits a financial bond, which would be used to protect the taxpayer and meet any unforeseen costs that might be incurred, and which would be redeemable after a fixed period. Yet the Government didn’t even consult on this option. The Government needs to be honest about migration, only make promises they can keep, and sort out the mess of illegal immigration at Britain’s borders.

I have just given up two taxable jobs to go and spend a few months with my son and wife in Asia.
When my small savings are spent outside of the UK I will return to the UK to look for work,I cannot work in Asia as I do not have a degree to teach,I can work illegally in my wife’s country but If I am caught I will be deported back to the UK,so I have no option but to work in the UK,save some money and then return to my wife and child in Asia,each time I return to the UK I will claim job seekers and housing benefit,this is the best part of £1000 a month.this may be for a few months or if the jobs market is not great it could be six months.
This cycle will continue for my family each time I return to the UK without them unless this new threshold is lowered and I can pay my own way for my family which is all I want to do.
The stats show that there are 15,000 families affected by this new rule,that means that the tax payer in the UK will pick up the tab for the best part of £15 million.
