British government still bowing down to rulings from the ECJ.

The absurd position of Brexit Britain still bowing down to foreign judges is sadly alive and well, with the European Court of Justice overruling the government on EU migrants bringing over non-EU partners and spouses.

Stay informed with email updates

Luxembourg’s ECJ overruled a Home Office decision not to allow an illegal migrant from Algeria to live in Britain because his partner was a dual British-Spanish national.

It effectively means that EU migrants who take up British citizenship will be free to bring over partners from non-EU countries.

Regardless of what people think of the actual case, it demonstrates why the government must push on with Brexit. The decision of the Home Office and elected politicians in the UK is still being overruled by the European Court of Justice, something the British people voted to end on 23rd June 2016.
