Well I wrote to my MP to vent my spleen about these changes and told him the story of how we met, my visits to Thailand over the last 2 years, our marriage and Tia's 3 month visit to UK last year, he wrote back to me and asked when was her settlement visa refused? We have never applied for one, nor did anything in my letter suggest we had. I mentioned we had NOT applied due to me earning less than £18,600 and asking for his support in overturning the threshold, seems he can't read, no wonder this country is in a mess....... He did offer to write to the UKBA (yes he dis still call it that) on our behalf, though goodness knows what for. Oh well, I'll write back to him and point out we never applied.
