This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Petition Let us UK citizens live in the UK with our own wives and husbands.

This petition might seem strange at first, but the family visa rules introduced by Theresa May in 2012 see countless British Citizens live in forced separation from their partners, or in exile. The Supreme Court found parts of the rules 'lawful' but that doesn't make them right. Please change them.
