I am a US Citizen and my partner is English. A lot of people may not know this, but when you fly into the UK and you are not a citizen, you are subjected to extremely close scrutiny. You are required to provide proof of onward travel. Every time I go there now, I am very nervous because I may be accused of overstaying my visa -- not necessarily in UK, but elsewhere, like Europe -- anything that may cast doubt on my tourist status while in UK. True, my partner is English and we are not married, but I am basically unable to travel to UK at the moment, because I have more UK and Europe stamps in my passport than US stamps. I will have to legitimize residency in Europe by getting employed or marrying my partner, before I can ever travel into the UK again.

This further tightening of travel restrictions for the UK only portends darker days to come. I always imagine the UK to be a very friendly, open society. But there are some really shady 1984-style things happening in the government there.

Put your best foot forward. Or just call in and say you're sick.
