Spotted on Facebook ( https://twitter.com/GuidoTallman ) :
Sometimes, even after 3 years of working in immigration, you just have to pick your jaw off the ground when you hear of decisions made by the Home Office over who to refuse visas to.

We hear of a British National who's brother is Jamaican (and lives in Jamaica). The Brit is ill, in the kidney section of a London hospital. His brother is willing to donate a kidney to save his life, one of the few matches available anywhere. The Home Office refuse to grant the brother a visa as they suspect he might try and overstay.

WTF? I mean he might leave a kidney behind, or even all of him stay behind, but saving a life isn't worth the risk - is it?
