Ignorance blights immigration administration

The Daily Post illustrates this with a report of a young woman from Patagonia who wanted to take six months off from her secure employment back home in order to improve her Welsh with a North Wales family, with whom she had connections. She was detained and then turned back by immigration staff.

The intervention of MPs did not help. Perhaps the London officials regard them as foreigners as well.

On reflection, I wonder whether the young lady would have been better advised to enter the EU via Ireland and Wales via Holyhead.
