Following Up on the #MMCase

Okay, it has been much delayed, I know. I’ve been wrapped up in my own little world, it seems, for some time now and I missed the news that had been announced… well back in April. In my defence, it isn’t an actual ruling by the supreme court, so – as with a lot of […]

#MMCase Caution

Disclaimer: I am an armchair critic who did not even attend the hearing of the MM case in the Supreme Court. Going off of what we learned from the Court of Appeal’s ruling, I am not hedging any bets either way with how things are going to go. Judges are a special brand of people […]

Court of Appeal Rules on MM -v- Secretary of State

I’ll forgo the news articles, everyone has probably seen them anyway. Britcits and Freemovement¬†(to name my favourite blogs for such things – as if you haven’t guessed as much…) have more detailed summaries of the event and those who are interested can likely find the bulk of my sources on Twitter through the #MMcase hashtag.

Ruling on MM & Ors -v- Secretary of State (Home Office)

Via BritCits: “CONFIRMED Judgment in MM and Ors vs SSHD to be handed down Friday 11 July, 10:30am, Courtroom 3 (Justice Aikens). Fingers, toes, all crossed please!” For many, this journey has been two years in the making – since the new rules came into effect in June 2012 (for a grand total of 3,641 […]

The UKBA/Home Office Immigration Catch-22

If this plot was any thicker, you’d turn it out onto a platter and call it jello. And before anyone asks: I still haven’t heard anything about MM & Others Versus Home Office (AKA: C4/2013/2086). People say that knowledge equals power – but I know of an occasion when even knowledge is impotent. It happens […]

What do we know about C4/2013/2086: MM -v- Secretary of State?

Yeah, that question. Everyone has been asking it. They’ve been asking Britcits and Freemovement and just about every other source that they can think of who might actually know WTAF (What The Actual F*** – newish acronym making the scene, because we’re that cool nerdy) is going on. To be frankly honest: No, seriously, I […]

C4/2013/2086: MM -v- Secretary of State for the Home Department

By now, many of you are aware that the case I am referencing is the reason why 3,014-and-counting Family Visa Applications are on hold (partners, parents, children, spouses, adult dependents, etc…. are all effected). I’ve touched on this case briefly in previous posts, but since we’re still waiting to hear a verdict, I thought now […]
