Please sign and share the above petition to help put a stop to these criminals who ruin lives. Currently these scammers are targeting people in the USA and Europe. I believe that this petition will put pressure on Governments around the world to take action.

Erika Cardoso: I support you
Local councils and central Government are failing all of us.
Boris Johnson was voted back in because he delivered on the vaccine promise. What I realised is that he actually did nothing spectacular. Let’s remember he was not an EU leaver until he saw that it might help him to become Prime Minister. He publicly dismissed the seriousness of Covid19 until he caught it himself. He dismissed us when we demanded Dominic Cummings and Matt Hancock be sacked for breaking lockdown LAW. Boris Johnson was elected to serve and carry out the wishes of the people. Finally, Boris Johnson did nothing miraculous when it comes to the roll out speed of the vaccine. That was down to the people who voted to leave the EU and the red tape bureaucracy. Boris needs to pack his bags and leave with Matt Hancock. Oh, and take Sadiq Khan with them.

The MIR is a clear breach of the UN Declaration of Human Rights regarding gender equality since wives in the UK, especially full time mothers with young children, are far less likely to meet the terms of the MIR than if it is the husband in the UK. If not scrapped completely, the rule should at least be changed to include the recent earnings of all family members, whether in the UK or overseas.

I am in the same boat. My kids are growing up without their dad. I graduated from university almost a year ago but haven't been able to find work. As a geographically single parent I can only look for work that is within school hours. If my husband were here, he could look after the kids and my options for work would increase. Because of this situation, I am living on benefits. It's ridiculous. It is both beneficial for our family and for the government for my husband to be here as it would mean I could work and wouldn't have to rely on benefits but the government are too xenophobic to see sense.

This is very wrong and I’m sorry that you and your family have been subjected to such an unfair rule.It’s obvious that the amount someone is paid is no reflection of their worth, after all, our politicians are paid way above the minimum wage, and they are next to useless!

MIR is a Russian space station right? Okay.

(Just signaling to Erika that it might be helpful to spell it out.)
