Barred? No.....

They will just have to earn the minimum threshold to get them a visa as with people from outside the EU. That is perfectly fair imo, they need to show they can support their spouse without the need for use of public funds. I'd even be tempted to put that number up for people that live in London, can't support much on that salary down there.


The rich telling the poor who they can or can't fall in love with.

£18k is hardly a difficult salary to get, work a full time job and some other part time work and you are there pretty easily. Apply for a fiancée visa, get married and 6 months later your other half can get a job on the next visa, her job then counts towards the £18k threshold. It really isn't that hard for anyone with an ounce of resourcefulness.

You are living in cloud cuckoo land.

£18,000 "is hardly a difficult salary to get"?

1.1 million people used food banks last year.

17m people in this country have not got savings of £100.

Complete contempt for people less well off than you.

If people want it enough most could go out there and get it if it was THAT important for their lives.

If they are that skint I doubt they would have travelled anywhere to have meet a foreign wife/husband. If they are already here they will highly likely to be able to stay anyway.

There simply has to be a threshold, you can't risk having people who can barely even support themselves bringing a spouse over and expecting the taxpayer to support them, I also do not want my taxes spent that way.

The problem with the unemployed and low waged is they really don't want to get a well paid job.

Don't really know why you find this stuff awkward?? Life is about chapters, it's what makes it interesting. Imagine a book with one chapter? What a shit book. So the sky poker team came together and joyously knocked out a really positive chapter that you can all walk away from with fond memories. Onwards and upwards to the next adventure, brilliant. It's like when somebody dies, do you focus on the sadness they are gone or the joy that they were there? You are free to decide what attitude to take but personally I think awkwardness is about pity for others and I doubt anybody wants pity. Do you want my pity Tony? So dust off your burgundy jacket and move on to the next wonderful adventure, same for Orford or whoever, it's what life is about.

2.55 at Navan is interesting. 13 runners and 8 of them are 66/1 or bigger.

Bookies are only 1/5 first three but you can still get Edwulf for the right price on the win and the place against betfair.

Any views on the race?

That's an annoying way to lose a bet: unseats rider at the last, when likely second.

Oh wow TWD is the most boring pointless programme in the world. Why on earth doesn't someone just put a cap in that clown and be done with it. I really don't find him remotely scary.

Bit harsh overall but this season has been pathetic I agree!

Yah, I guess to qualify further...TWD was kinda fascinating at first because I saw human beings moving from apex predator status to battling a force greater than us. How would we cope with such a situation, how would the resolve of people stand up to the test? Being the resilient bunch we are hopefully we would come together to uncover ingenious solutions highlighting the strength of human spirit. But NO! We are following what appears to be an aging biker dude with several sobbing wives swinging around a bat with a girl's name. It's like a soap opera. Why not just kill this insignificant man, why not just move on away from this insignificant man and get back to the real problem? It's akin to a series about man's global battle with cancer and choosing to focus on what I ate for dinner, totally irrelevant, totally pointless.

Well I can't very well wirte a 6 paragraph post stating Grianne #1 and Alana #4 then turn a bet down can I. Consider yourself booked Smiley

I guess we'll wait to see what the BP's hold! I'm hoping that Grianne is going to be something in line with her current work in make-up studio, if she comes to the table with some make-up then I'm flying to Ireland myself to punch her in the face (unless she wins ofc, in which case I'm flying to Edinburgh to collect my £50 Smiley )

Very good! Best of luck to you, hopefully next series isn't as dreadful as this one has been.

Why let any of them stay?  Isn't the principle we want closed borders?  Why are we letting that slide for the well off?  

I don't really have a problem with people here already staying, others might. There just has to be a sensible threshold showing people can support themselves, you can argue about what that number should be, I think it's fine others obviously don't.

Closed border? Not in my view, just more selective....

The vast majority of immigrants could always support themselves.  So that can't be what people voted for?

Your mixing up immigrants already here versus someone wanting to bring a spouse into the country, two different issues. That financial threshold is for someone wanting to bring a non EU spouse into the country and has been in place for many years already.

Anyway off the see the family now, catch up tomorrow...

Module pretty friendless in the market despite the rain arriving Sad

It might be friendless now.....

Meh, Bouvreuil was 6th.  Went pretty short in running (maybe 5/2?).  Didn't get home.
