Children and visas

An incredibly touching video showing a child's reaction to discovering his 'baba' got a UK visa.   'Baba' is the boy's stepfather, and the mum informs us the two are very close and the little boy kept saying "this is my bestest day ever".  The innocence of the response is heartwarming and the excitement contagious.

It is however sad when children so young have to face the harsh realities of UK's divisive family immigration rules especially when it has been inflicted on us by our own politicians who are paid to supposedly represent us.  We hope sense and justice will soon prevail so kids can once more be excited at the thought of playing games and going on holidays, rather than for something as basic as being able to hug a parent.


  1. Really cute! I'm glad the boy will be reunited with his baba soon. Can only imagine the excitement at the airport arrivals section.

  2. Theresa May must be very upset to see his Baba has got the visa.
