Poor to be banned from bringing spouses to the UK from overseas | UK news | The Guardian
Home Office proposes minimum income threshold for those wishing to bring a spouse, partner or dependents to the country. It's yet another thing that sounds tough, will mess with people's lives and happiness, but doesn't actually reduce the numbers that much. Note that there's no investigation of whether the spouse can support themselves, can work; it's an automatic "You must be able to pay for your other half to have them" thing. Russian brides incorporated into law, perhaps?
