https://twitter.com/ColinYeo1 : I am struggling to think of any other legal case that can have caused as much direct anguish to as many people as #MMcase

https://twitter.com/crookedfootball : Gutted about the #MMcase but Court of Appeal seems often to be more establishment than @UKSupremeCourt - so hope for appeal success

https://twitter.com/PaulBlomfieldMP : Thousands of families remain split apart because of the #familymigration rules. They're causing real anguish https://www.facebook.com/paulblomfieldmp/posts/10152101527741734 … #MMcase

https://twitter.com/Heather_Jones5 : HO wins judgment on minimum income threshold https://www.gov.uk/government/news/home-office-wins-judgment-on-minimum-income-threshold …
#MMcase devastating - Warning "Do not fall in love with a foreigner"

https://twitter.com/chris8tine : @ukhomeoffice 'delighted' families permanently separated by today's ruling - & they preach #BritishValues?! #MMcase https://www.gov.uk/government/news/home-office-wins-judgment-on-minimum-income-threshold

https://twitter.com/BritCits : You realise by shattering families you're building up a whole bunch of bad karma for yourself @JBrokenshire @ukhomeoffice ? #MMcase

https://twitter.com/artclarke57 : It's sad my dogs have more right 2 come back & live in UK with me than my wife does.

https://twitter.com/BritCits : Britcit with Bangladeshi wife:"Dont understand why court spent 4m for this disastrous conclusion when >3000 families in pieces" #MMcase

https://twitter.com/wayne_pearsall : lost battle but not war.  Beat ukba and Singh http://surinder-singh-route.info

https://twitter.com/EiriOhtani : Even if the Court does not agree with us, the current #familimigration rules are indefensible. Don't give up people! #MMcase

https://twitter.com/davidcorton : @JBrokenshire oh you're 'delighted'? DELIGHTED!? To be breaking families up? What kind of man makes a comment like that? #MMcase

https://twitter.com/ZahiraHassan : What? judge said in Appeal Court, #MMcase 'rules are discriminatory but justified'.Discrimination is never justified."lessons: equality&law.

https://twitter.com/LawFirmLimited : #MMCase judgement - rules 'discriminatory but justified' #familymigration #immigration #law #AppendixFM #HomeOffice #familylife

https://twitter.com/johnstuadams : Devastating news on the #MMCase judgement. But we must still keep up the fight. People have a right to be with their loved ones.

https://twitter.com/migrants_rights : Disappointing decision in #MMcase but this is not end of the story. Fight goes on and we won't stop until we get rules protecting families!

https://twitter.com/Cailean_Mac : Will pass most people by, but the #MMcase means that many British Citizens will be separated from their partners thanks to UK Govt policy.

https://twitter.com/MFImmigration : Disappointed to hear decision in #MMcase. Case likely to go to the Supreme Court now.

https://twitter.com/anamacouzet : Disappointed to hear #MMcase judgment - rules 'discriminatory but justified'. More families will be separated.

https://twitter.com/BritCits : "A sad day"  "Crazy!"  "Gutted" "This is so unfair!" "Just a complete let down isn't it...can't bring myself to read it [judgment]!" #MMcase

https://twitter.com/BritCits : Justice was NOT served today. On BC FB: "It's a massive injustice."

https://twitter.com/BritCits : BC FB: "One hand they said discriminatory and on other hand lawful...how does that work?"   "This is not justice" #MMcase

https://twitter.com/BritCits : "Thanks for tearing my family apart Theresa May;would love [u] to explain to 4yo where his daddy is when crying himself to sleep!" #MMcase

https://twitter.com/BritCits : The silver lining from awful #MMcase judgment is that those on hold will now be refused & hence able to appeal, likely on Article 8 grounds

https://twitter.com/lovelettershome : We have word that BBC Newsnight is doing a feature on the #MMcase tonight, including people from our book. Exciting! 22:30, BBC2

https://twitter.com/Branquelo84 : my heart goes out to the ones suffering with this desicion. I too am crushed. my search for a job with 60 hours per week continues
