'I'm disappointed, angry, and exhausted. But please, don't feel sorry for me; if anything should be taken out of this, it's that the increasingly restrictive immigration policies in the UK are unfair, oppressive, and hurting people for arbitrary reasons. If I have had this much trouble, how much harder is it for the family from parts of Europe with low wages and quality of living who are seeking a better life? Or the refugees from so many places greeted by racism and rejection from day 1? This country is not drowning in immigrants, no matter what you read in the Daily Mail. Instead, the entire visa and border system has become a political tool to score points with reactionary voters while admitting the super wealthy without pause and holding everyone else in a subservient, precarious and disposable position - no matter how skilled, how connected to the UK, how desired by employers.'
