Gerard - the epilogue
Our good friend and comrade Gerard has now awoken from his #settlementvisanightmare, documented here : http://britcits.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/gerard , and here : https://twitter.com/search?q=%23settlementvisanightmare&src=hash .
However, as an epilogue of sorts, and in light of today's decision to scrap the UKBA, we submit two pieces of primary documentation :
Gerard's letter to Rob Whiteman, the soon to be former shogun of the UKBA : http://www.scribd.com/doc/132520547/Gerard-Hearne-to-Rob-Whiteman .
One rather feels that Gerard is channelling the spirit of Henry Root here... most amusing...
Our close ally Lord Avebury's ( https://twitter.com/EricAvebury ) somewhat terse note on the matter to the Immigration Minister : http://www.scribd.com/doc/132520722/Avebury-to-Harper
No doubt they get an avalanche of similar complaints every day because of the hoops they are demanding people go through to be reunited with their spouses. You may have succeeded in reducing the immigration numbers by a few hundred by making it so difficult to get family reunification visas, but I hope you realise the enormous personal cost of this ‘achievement’.
