The judgment is now out in the long awaited case of MM v Secretary of State for the Home Department  EWCA Civ 985, the test case challenging the minimum income threshold for spouses wishing to enter the United Kingdom. The Court of Appeal has allowed the Secretary of State’s appeal. This is terrible, heartbreaking news for those families forced apart by the rule. An appeal to the Supreme Court will be attempted, but it will be many months until any outcome is known.

What follows is just an initial reaction on reading the judgment. I will update if anything further occurs to me.
