Some people I know from USA, who have visited Britain over thirty times in the last few decades, were refused entry by immigration a few days ago. They were taken by an armed escort into a room, searched, fingerprinted and kept waiting for several hours. Finally they were put back on a plane to the States. The airline crew were given an envelope that contained the reason why they were not allowed in, but they were not to receive it until they arrived back in America. The reason? They had made a few typographical errors in the 51 page application form! This country is getting worse!
