Thanks so much for signing Pauline's petition.
I am really pleased to let you know that Pauline has just been granted 30 months leave to stay! So people power really can work!
We still have some mountains to cross but we can at last relax a bit now and admire the view!
Over 100,000 signatures in less than 10 weeks is amazing. Knowing there are so many good people out there has given us great strength. Apparently the Home Secretary received some 16,000 tweets from petition signers over just the past 2 days (LOL!).
Thanks also to 38 Degrees who have been brilliant! Without this support I'm sure Pauline would have been just another case to brush under the carpet!
Whilst the decision does not mitigate for the injustices Pauline has suffered (as clearly described by our barrister) it will at least allow the long recovery process to begin. We can now start planning the rest of our lives - including a long-awaited honeymoon!
I really hope that lessons can be learned so others don't have to go through the same nightmare. I for one will one work tirelessly to this end.
Keep well and thanks again.
Grahame (& Pauline) x
