This is not good news

From a friend on Facebook :

Well my son and daughter in law have called it a day, they are both not happy, and although they feel that they might be able to resolve their issues if they were allowed to be together, as they are not nothing can be done...
I wish everyone here the best possible outcome. I urge you all to find solutions to re-unite your families before it is too late, as long term separation isn't good for anyone.

I'm gutted, and I know others are too.

There is nothing clever about the way the government is breaking up good families and good relationships, and the human toll this is creating.

As Lord Avebury wrote to the government regarding another case of someone affected by the rules ( http://www.scribd.com/doc/132520722/Avebury-to-Harper ):

You may have succeeded in reducing the immigration numbers by a fewhundred by making it so difficult to get family reunification visas, but I hope you realise the enormous personal cost of this ‘achievement’.
