I really hoped Nadine Dorries would go away after the revelation that Little Miss Moral Standards had been shagging around. Apparently not. Bah.

Les Hinton, publisher of the Wall Street Journal has resigned too.

I thought it was already the case that the poor were restricted from bringing their spouses? A friend of mine from medical school has a fiance in Tanzania, who she said she wasn't allowed to bring over until she has £20000 in savings, and that's been since before the coalition.

Last year, my then-fiancee (now wife) got a visa to come over on a fiancee's visa, and I didn't have £20k in savings. I did have to prove that I had a job, a viable steady income, somewhere for her to live and generally prove that our relationship was genuine and she would not be a burden on the British taxpayer.

She is American, but I'm reasonably sure that they can't show bias based on nationality.
