Dear ConDem government………

and particularly Teresa May.

What sort of fucked up immigration policy is this?

How is sending Harley Miller home helpful to the country?

Harley Miller petition  (8109 signatures so far, keep signing)

Mariam Harley Miller has been in the United Kingdom for 9 years working continually for the National Health Service in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health sector helping young people of this country through sometimes quite severe mental health problems.

She has also contributed taxes in all that time and has never required any benefits. She is considered “highly skilled” with two Masters degrees and various lesser qualifications. She owns her own property and doesn’t have a criminal record.

However on Thursday 31st October her renewal application for residency in the UK was rejected after legally living here for 9 years and UKBA/Home Office decided not to renew her visa, with no right of appeal. As of Friday 1st November she was given just 28 days to pack up her house, her home, her life and leave.

She is no longer allowed to work and was formally dismissed from her senior position without notice or severance pay after 9 years dedicated to the UK National Health Service. The meeting at which she was dismissed was called a “hearing” with “allegations” and an “investigation” as though having her visa renewal rejected was a crime. Ironically she is no longer entitled to health care. The very same health care that she has contributed to in terms of work and taxes. In fact as of that Friday she has no rights in the UK whatsoever despite owning property and her years of contribution.

Apparently she is not alone, many immigrants from Australia who are approaching 10 years are now having their applications for permanent residency refused.  These are hard working contributors to multi -cultural Britain.  It looks like it will all help the Home Office, UK Border Agency and the Condems to meet targets that they have set themselves.   Has no-one told them its quality not quantity that counts?

Kathy the sane feeling incandescent with anger.


Facism rising in the UK


Sleepwalking into Fascism


Finally this week, the UK Home Office twitter account took to producing stats each day of how many ‘suspected’ illegal immigrants they had arrested under the hash tag #immigrationoffenders – evendisplaying pictures of people they had arrested (while still only ‘suspects’) for us all to gawk and point at.  The fact that people are still even asking ‘how is this racist’ tells you just how damaging this conversation about immigration has become.  The UK populace is being taught to fear the ‘illegal’ and the ‘immigrant’ as a drain on our resources, while the country is being feasted upon by privateers and profiteers.
