Visa Update

Is it almost May now? Yes, I thought so. Well, today I tried to contact the correct visa section at the Border Agency, but the first phone call, after some minutes, ended up with a voice message giving me another number, and on phoning that number I was told that they were too busy to take calls. Anyway, as far as I can tell somebody there still has my passport etc, along with a perfectly valid application to extend my stay beyond some weeks ago.

It is easy to see why people are tempted to overstay their UK visa. That led to the confusion over whether Juan Carlos de Menzies (shot six times in the head with hollow-point bullets by cowardly police) was in the UK legally or not. I am happy that you are in Oxford with scientists who question the orthodoxy, but the country around it needs a brain transplant.

Actually, I was just told that my passport will soon be returned!

I don't believe it! I have my passport, with permission to stay until October!

That's good news! Hope you stay as long as you can. Are you planning to attend any conferences and give talks?
