Kerre Woodham writes how she was going to lambast the Government for the decision of the Residence Review Board to deport a 101 year old back to the UK, but instead is praising Clayton Cosgrove for his intervention.
I have to agree with Kerre that it was a good call by Cosgrove. The board’s assertion:
“the appellant’s age, his financial resources, the fact that his son lives in New Zealand and the fact the appellant has no family in Great Britain do not make him special”. They went on to say “there is no evidence that the appellant could not have continued to live in Great Britain alone and without his son, as he had done for many years”.
just screamed of a lack of common sense. Ministers sometimes have to supply said common sense.
