America "changes mind"; Amy decides not to go after all

It's surely quite unusual for the US to reverse a high-profile visa decision, but it's done so in the case of Amy Winehouse - perhaps the Home Office offered a two-for-one deal with the Abu Hamza? Maybe the US authorities discovered a fact about Winehouse that had somehow been forgotten at the original visa application? Or perhaps, simply, there's two systems of law operating - one for most of us; another for the super-rich in the entertainment industry who fund political careers.

Still, the change of heart has come too late - Amy's still intending to do the Grammys by satellite. Presumably because if she left now, she'd be getting in with very little time to rehearse.
