  1. Denying a European citizen the unrestricted right to bring his/her genuine spouse into his/her country, is a fairly recent thing. However, most (maybe all) European governments are under pressure from their populace to reduce immigration. It is extremely difficult (and very costly) to keep out illegal immigrants - and it's unlawful to deny entry to genuine asylum seekers (rightly so IMHO). Unfortunately for some, it is very much easier for the immigration authorities to find a reason to deny entry to the spouse or civil partner of a law abiding citizen. Question: Which is the easier way to reduce the immigration figures? (a) build a wall (b) thorough examination of all asylum applications (c) increase the financial requirements for a spouse visa. "Picking off the low-hanging fruit" is an expression which accurately describes this situation.
  2. No, it's the word "dictator" that is banned - and "ars3h0le" too.
  3. Catholic School Statue Covered Up For Being Too Gross And Weird

    I fail to see what is wrong with this statue. It's just a normal depiction of a Catholic priest and a young boy ...

  5. What variety is white rice sold in supermarkets?

    It's official - 35% rice contains not more than 35% of broken grains (plus a few other things that are not whole rice grains). http://documents.wfp.org/stellent/groups/public/documents/manual_guide_proced/wfp242953.pdf
  6. What variety is white rice sold in supermarkets?

    I'm not certain, but I think the 35% refers to the amount of broken grains.
  7. Removal of cadet’s organs ‘normal procedure’

    Especially when there is a history of this 18 year old being severely punished in a previous incident ... This is from the Coconuts article I linked in a previous post.
  8. Removal of cadet’s organs ‘normal procedure’

    My point is - they haven't even sent them off for testing yet ...
  9. Removal of cadet’s organs ‘normal procedure’

    Does this explain why the organs have not been sent for further examination, over a month after the original autopsy? - and only after a second examination revealed that the organs were missing AND the family has asked questions? That "assumption" may be correct - or not.
  10. There's a song about this ...
