Here is why.. I applied to the RMP, was invited over from N. Ireland to Livingston for selection in Jan. Completed the forms, interview, medical etc and received a letter a few weeks ago to attend attestation, (although my SC hadn't come through they still wanted me to come over). Gave them a call earlier this week as I hadn't gotten flight details. They told me they couldn't proceed with my application as one of my referees had given me a bad reference! When I had filled in the forms in Livingston the two referees I put were the only two people I could remember the full address of, and had used before as references. Now one of the referees I used was the brother of a female friend with whom I had fallen out with a month previous and I can only assume that he had given me a bad reference out of malice, I have never had a bad reference in my life!! My question is, what are the chances of getting the decision over turned? I have written references from half a dozen former employers (all good) I can send them, and if I explain the situation do you think it will matter??
