UK Border Agency's welcoming attitude!
Obviously I'm not being serious because my experience of the UKBA is anything BUT positive and this week they've just caused huge embarrassment for this country. They have taken the incredible decision to refuse entry to Scotland to the Pakistan Pipe Band for the World Pipe Band Championships. They were here last year, no problems that I'm aware of so why, now, are they suddenly being told they can't come? I will be writing to the UKBA for answers - it's getting to be ridiculous when it gets to the stage that we can't welcome something as brilliant as a pipe band from Lahore. Of course it's going to be too late for this year but we need to know why they are being treated like this.
