I've just received the following message:
Just to let you know that the deportation order has been cancelled for tomorrow. I would stress that is only a small victory as this is the normal procedure when an application for judicial review has been submitted. However, it does mean that we now have more time to continue with the other activities.
Kirrily has been asked by the caseworker at Jeremy Corbyn's office to pass on that they cannot reply to everyones' emails but they have been received. Any further information will be passed out through this network and on the facebook group and the blog.
Kirrily has just seen Guy and he passes on his deepest thanks. He is very overwhelmed by all the support he is receiving.
Thank you everyone for all that you have done so far, carry on emailing/faxing Jacqui Smith and your own MP (re. Sara's email today) and keep on circulating the petition link to family and friends.
