Jack Dee's Election Helpdesk and spousal visa
Lewis Clark, a victim of the family division rules (his wife-to-be is American), shares his story with a group of comedians who can't really help. Still, a problem shared is a problem halved, as they say.

The general incredulity that the poor lad gets is quite breathtaking really. Good luck Lewis, if you read this, and thanks for sharing the issue (which apparently even hip socially-aware comedians know very little about)!
