Restore equality by making domestic and foreign polygamous marriages equal under British Law.
Currently, in the UK, foreign polygamous marriages are recognised, acknowledged and are not illegal. Meanwhile British people entering polygamous marriages in the UK are subject to arrest and face potential imprisonment.
The law should apply equally to Brits and foreigners living in Britain. Either we are all free to marry multiple spouses or NONE of us are.
If a foreign national can live here with all his wives and children and can claim social housing, Child Benefit and multiple spousal benefits then this same opportunity should be open to all citizens.
Choose. Make polygamy illegal (for all) or available (to all). Anything else is discriminatory.
