Who wants a sham marriage?

[1] In the Guardian: Government rules to prevent sham marriages by immigrants are unfair as they discriminate against those who are not Anglicans, the high court ruled today.

[2] On BBC Online: The judge said that he found the regime to be incompatible with human rights law because people who wanted to marry within the Church of England were not subject to the same scrutiny as those choosing another type of wedding.

People seeking to marry within other faiths, principally other branches of Christianity, Hinduism, Islam or Sikhism, were not given a similar benefit of the doubt where ministers of religion were content the proposed wedding was genuine.

Sadly there are unscrupulous people from the sub-continent and here who take the piss and do scams. The government will have to find another way to fix it because I want the sham marriage scams to be clamped down on too. Whether this was the right measure, I don’t know.

Surely the way to ‘fix’ it is not to give the CofE a get-out.

On the contrary my dear lovable wahhabi, they are simply carrying the tradition of Asian entrepreneurship. Which I hope to follow.
