    The British Iron Curtain

    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!

    I have never had a problem going there!

    This is outrageous, surely the fact they were American was reason enough not to let them in?!?!?

    They're too neurotic for my liking. Irrational and mentally unstable at the best of times. :w00t:

    I'd rather have Americans than some of the other human detritus that seem to like calling this country "home".

    I didn't realise he said all that!

    I think once you have surrendered your ham sandwhich its all over, Winston could never have predicted that. I don't think they have still got it though, I'm sure it was served to me on my last flight, definately had a '91 feel to it
