Abolish huge visa fees for foreign spouses

After a British citizen has demonstrated that his/her marraige to a foreign spouse is not a sham there can be no justification for the huige visa fees which families must pay just to stay together. These fees inevitably run into thousands of pounds and must be paid if the foreign spouse is to remain.

While everybody understands and accepts that sham marriages must be exposed, surely a British citizen must have the right to keep his/her family together in his own coutry without incurring huge fees.
