Tory manifesto pledge to increase settlement visa threshold
Some of you may have picked up in the British media that the Tory election manifesto contains a pledge that the minimum financial requirement threshold will be raised from its current £18,600 annual income to an as yet unspecified amount.
The threshold is already the highest in the developed world which together with the extortionate application fees imposed as a result of May's policies in the Home Office make Britain the worst destination for citizens who have the effrontery to marry other than within their own nationality.
To put this into some perspective, some 42% of all British working males and 52% of women would not qualify currently for sponsorship of their foreign spouse in any settlement visa application to the UK.
With the promised increase these figures can only rise dramatically together with the angst likely to ensue. At present, it is estimated that up to 15,000 children are reduced to electronic means in order to maintain contact with a mother or father separated by May's policies.
This draconian measure is quite disgraceful but typical of the evil created by the monstrous, desiccated and barren bitch May.
Hundreds of British citizens of all ages are discovering for themselves just how nasty and mean-minded these policies truly are, particularly the manner in which they are imposed.
A few examples of just how fucked up they are:-
-no account of any property ownership is taken when weighing the application. If the sponsor has an income of less than £18,600 but owns his own home in which they propose to live and therefore will subsist rent-free, then tough shit, you are refused.
- no account of any potential earnings of one's spouse can be taken in the initial application. She/he is a chef, trained carpenter, qualified carer or arc welder, sorry, fuck you.
- you have assets of cash savings held in secure bonds but not immediately liquid, then fuck you, you're refused, only cash held in wholly accessible accounts for the past six months count.
- you have savings of £16,000 which you propose to use to make up for any shortfall in meeting the income requirement. Sorry, fuck you, only savings in excess of £16,000 can be counted because in order that the cvunt May can be satisfied you will not seek benefits you have to have that amount in the bank which excludes you from qualification for most benefits.
- any employment the sponsor may have in the UK must have been held by them for at least six months prior to any settlement application being lodged. You want your family with you when you return to the UK and start your new job? Sorry, fuck you. Suck up the separation and enjoy it. Hey, why can't you just use Skype like all the other fuckers. You think you are something special?
In practice, many folk who for whatever reason may wish to return to the UK with their families or other loved ones are going to experience ever greater difficulties in negotiating the minefield May has laid for them. And for what purpose?
Hitting foreigners is always a vote catcher for the Tory right wing trash pandering to the lower end British. Fuck 'em.
Anyway, the point of the post is to act as a warning - if you are thinking of sponsoring a partner's settlement, do it now and do not delay.
