Back to Blighty? Nahh, we don't want your sort...
Just when Our Man had got to thinking he really ought to quit subscribing to the Japan Times after another couple of advertorials almost as turgid as this one documented right here (how could you consider quitting, what with it being Bulgarian National Day and all?), they go and print an interesting tale about officious UK immigration rules putting off even a most charming Japanese Anglophile from wanting to marry her British Beau in Blighty. If Our Man had his way, he'd eliminate passports entirely, but that's a post for another day. Perish the thought that Our Man would ever become one of those tedious "More British than the British" ex-pats berating his homeland yet forever criticising his adopted home, BUT... what has happened to the land of the Magna Carta and friend to the shunned radicals of Europe? In between CCTV blanket coverage of ordinary folk going about their own business and Daily Mail anti-foreigner rants, will there ever be room for another Tom Paine? Apparently not, he's blogging from Russia. Check out a recent post right here.
