The Tycroes pensioners who face being ripped apart by immigration services after 10 years of marriage have received the news they most dreaded. 

The government is trying to gag Hope Not Hate.


'By design or default this Bill will severely restrict the ability of organisations like HOPE not hate to function and combat fascism, racism and other forms of extremism. It is nothing more than a Gagging Bill, limiting democracy, political involvement and criticism. At a time when trust in political parties and politicians is at an all-time low we need to increase involvement and participation in the democratic process rather than limiting it.'
