Pensions: Foreign Spouses

The Tory Right and UKIP have created an offensive context of ‘bashing johnny foreigner’ from which I’d hope we would distance ourselves………………..YET these 2 measures are going through..?

 1 Widow(er)s of British OAPs who live overseas are to have their pensions stopped (remember,these have been earned by the same contributions as those who choose to stay in the UK) ..likely to be a growing concern,perhaps,for those of Afro-Asian descent;

 2 An overseas spouse will not be allowed to join the UK spouse unless the latter can show a minimum income f £18,000 (rules me out).  Is this compassionate and caring?
