Does anyone know if this delay is indicative of a likely refusal ? Or if the HO is experiencing high workloads and hence delays in processing ?

Please desist from asking questions in the TIMELINE ONLY topic. You have a topic, link below, where I have asked you a question already on your eligibility already.

Thank you for your Super Priority Application.

We have attempted to process your application within the 24-hour service standard, unfortunately it appears your application will not be processed within the 24-hour target.

This is because your application raises exceptionally complex issues and we require further time to consider your case thoroughly and reach a decision.
