I know I'm mixing my metaphors here but it's becoming increasing difficult not to reach the conclusion that I have slipped into a parallel universe where rationality works in some different and completely incomprehensible way.
If you are applying for British citizenship you have to get your application signed by two referees one of whom should be an "acceptable professional person". Helpfully you are supplied with a list of acceptable professional persons. It is a very interesting list. For example, medical doctors are not on it and thus I assume not regarded by the UK Border Agency as "acceptable professional persons". However, if you are a Christian Science Practitioner that's good enough for UKBA.
Run that by me again. If you are a qualified medic you are not an "acceptable professional person" but if you believe that sickness is an illusion that can be corrected by prayer alone then you are just the sort of person that UKBA thinks can be trusted to certify a citizenship application.
I can't even begin to get into the mind of the person who made that decision.
