Revisiting The FLR(M)

It’s nearing that time. In October 2014, much to our surprise, our FLR(M) visa was granted, permitting me right to reside in the UK for 2.5 years. Two years have almost come and passed us by in a whirlwind of life and we’re in the process of gathering documentation for the extension. There are two […]

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

Eyes On the Ball

In keeping with the theme of my Visa being on hold and my last post where I rambled in length about certain MPs who seem to be of the opinion that I’m just benefit leaching/job-stealing/non-integrating scum. Points to our solicitor/lawyer, he’s keeping his eyes on the ball. As much as I would love to rake those […]

Name-Shame Produces Results… Kind of.

I find it suspect that every time I’ve named and shamed my MP, within one week he dignifies us with a response. Leaving me to conclude that the fellow google-searches his own name (which, when you think about it, is probably a rather intelligent thing to do, as it lets you know who’s talking smack). […]

UKBA’s Stacked Deck

If you look at what the Government has to say about Immigrants, the first impression you get is that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you fall in the Migrant spectrum, you are an “undesirable.” Why? Because if you’re working, you’re “stealing jobs” from British Citizens; if you’re not working then you’re “leeching […]
