Indirectly sending the citizen into exile? The relevance of British citizenship to proportionality under Article 8 ECHR.

Blake J’s conclusion is clear: in the absence of a conscribed list demonstrating compelling justification (factors such as criminality, adverse immigration history and lack of self-sufficiency are considered relevant), refusing entry clearance (or leave to remain) in circumstances where the British citizen partner would have to relocate outside the UK to continue family life is a disproportionate interference with rights protected under Article 8 ECHR.
