Well, I am posting with an update on my friend's application to be allowed to return and live in the UK, the details of which I set out above. She has been granted leave!

I appreciate it’s your friend and you want the best for them but that perfectly illustrates the ridiculous exercise in overcorrection this has now turned into. Someone who voluntarily left the UK 45 years should not be able to come back simply because they would like to. Any other nationality would be turned away after two years’ absence and have to start again from scratch.

Even though I am very happy for my friend, I feel really sad for those who are still waiting to hear and have lived here all their lives.
