In the midst of all this kerfuffle a letter came through Peter and Odi's door to say their application for asylum has been turned down.
I wish I knew what was happening. Is it normal to give asylum seekers work permits? Does the work permit imply a right to stay in the country? Is the rejection of the asylum plea a game changer? Are the authorities making it up as they go along?
On top of everything else, Odi is expecting her second child in just under a week.
