Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I shoulds also mention that, even if the actual decision taker was a civil servant, the speed with which the decision was taken strongly suggests that the Minister's interest in the case was well known.

One of the things that got David Blunkett (former prominent British Labour minister) into trouble, was having his private office contact the official dealing with his lovers nanny's immigration case. That resulted in an unusually speedy decision, but nowhere near as fast as the one being considered in this thread.
