Read yesterday that the UK's 'tough new immigration rules' had successfully thwarted a dire terrorist threat in the shape of several Canadian Musicians. Well can I say on behalf of both myself and Mrs S that we are arse squirmingly embarrassed to have anything to do with both the people who drafted those rules and the barely trained chimps who got the job of enforcement. The Airport authority must have recruited the officers concerned from the ranks of Parking Attendant rejects, and that's pretty dumbed down.

We would both like to say 'sorry' to the Canadian people and our fellow dwellers on Vancouver Island. The current UK authorities responsible for this debacle are really nothing to do with us or the expatriate British community over here. In fact they're partly the reason for our leaving the UK. We're truly very, very sorry about the complete incompetence displayed by both the UK immigration rule drafters and the implementers. I mean come on! Canada is a friendly nation, an ally. How dumb can you get?

Now I'm going to go and hide, and if found claim to be Irish, Australian or a New Zealander. Anything but English. How do I feel about the UK now? To quote Brian Chapman playing King Arthur in 'Monty Python and the Holy grail'; "On second thoughts let's not go to Camelot, it is a silly place."
