Bye bye Papa
By Lizzie - her family's story is here : http://britcits.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/lizzie
Lizzie says : This video is what happens everyday when we say goodbye to my husband on Skype. Due to changes in UK family immigration laws, my husband was refused visa. He cannot even enter the UK to visit us. It doesn't matter that we got married in England. It does not matter that we have a baby together. Our human right to a normal family life has been respected, worse Ignored. This video is snippet of the effect this has on our daughter. The APPG on migration reported that the new rules have a disproportionate effect on British families but the government have, as yet, ignored the report. We need changes now. Every day delayed is a day lost to us.

(Note - both the families in the Skype Mummy and Skype Daddy videos are well on the way to resolving their situations.
Skype Mummy now has her visa, and is in the UK - http://britcits.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/andy
Skype Daddy now has his EEA family permit and so is set on the Surinder Singh route - http://britcits.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/surinder%20singh
As noted here - http://britcits.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/this-is-monday-read-and-smile-remember.html - many situations are well on their way to resolution. Family division rules actually don't work).
