Update on David and Dee

Previously - British citizen David's Canadian wife Dee in detention centre :

Dee's refusal letter :

David says :

'Dee's on the plane back to Toronto, and immigration still insist she did nothing wrong (not a hope in hell of getting it in writing though!) Dee says thanks everyone, and she is likely to be away from the computer for a few days to recover from lack of rest. She is going to phone me when she gets home and I'll let you know she arrived safely.

'... The BBC Radio Wales program Eye On Wales will be broadcasting a 30-minute program on Sunday containing interviews recorded with people in Wales affected by the immigration rules, including Dee and me.

'There will also be a segment on Good Morning Wales on Saturday www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03ft71m which specifically focuses on Dee and me due to recent events, and there may be a piece on the BBC Wales website as well (still in progress at this time).

'Both programs should be available online within the UK within 24hrs of airing, and we will be getting a CD recording to upload for those who can't access the online content.'


  1. Thanks for updating guys, and a big massive thank you to everyone for messages of support, advice and help.

    Happily married, unhappily in different countries yet again. If the Home Office want a war, they'll get one! Let battle commence.

    1. Thanks for the updates Dave. Hang in there - I'm sure everyone will be following this very closely!

      Speak soon.
