Reviews of ECO decisions

News from the front line is that Entry Clearance Officers (ECOs) are overturning refusals under immigration rule 320(7B) that were made before the string of concessions was announced. Just ask for a review, you shouldn’t have to make a second application and pay the whacking great fee for their ‘service’ all over again.

ECOs are apparently pretty pissed off themselves, and I can see why. First asked to do one thing, then another, then another and so on. They aren’t the ones to blame here, it’s the Home Office policy people that are the headless chickens.
