You'll remember at the start of November Linda called in, she was trying to cross the border, desperate to see her daughter who had two major surgeries with major complications. 

She and her husband were fully vaccinated, both had negative covid tests and they had twice been denied travel exemptions. MP Simeon Brown was trying to help them to no avail. 

I advised her to take her negative tests and head to the border, bugger them!  Tell the police you're going through. 

Linda was worried about the legal repercussions, but I offered to pay any fines or legal bills she might incur! 

Linda joined me for an update.
