Thanks for that nwgooner.. Not worried about my counter signature person whatsoever. Worried about my convictions, yes. And I dont remember mentioning references at all? Could you remind me?
Just asking a question as it seems odd, you provide documentation to prove your ID which is verified at the ARC.

My counter signatory was never even contacted, may be something to do with my clearance from a previous job or possibly if the boxes are ticked from everything else they don’t need to

Someone who has something to lose should they lie. Owner of local shop, landlord of local pub, school teachers someone like that as long as they have known you over a year
