I'm too narcissistic to invite anyone to stay though.

That is a very upmarket bridge. A bit damp under there I imagine...or perhaps you live on that ship.

'A dizzying maze': how the UK immigration system is geared to reject

e immigration and asylum system is not only confusingly complex in how it is designed; the way it is implemented makes almost every step you have to go through outrageously expensive. In 2016-17, fees for settlement, residence and nationality increased by 25%. They are constantly changing, but at the time of writing, if you want to become a permanent resident of the UK, it will cost you £2,389. That is on top of £50 for a “Life in the UK” test, which you have to take when you apply to become a British citizen or for permanent residency and, if you are required to take one, £150 for an English exam. Anyone given discretionary leave to remain has to refresh their status every three years, which costs £900 each time. It has even got to the stage where the Home Office is charging £5.48 every time you require a response by email. This inevitably affects poorer migrants disproportionately, people who might not be able to pay to get the reply they need, which may subsequently prevent them from resolving their claim.
Can anyone seriously justify that responding to an email costs the Home Office £5.48.

Is the figurehead a whore in bed, and is there a ten foot penis for a mast?

Why is this an issue and what, exactly, do we want poorer migrants for? Surely we're better than that as a country and should be attracting and accepting the best? If they consider British citizenship or residency to be valuable, they'll be more than happy to pay the price for it.

No, the figurehead is a jaguar's head. And I don't believe Farage has been aboard.......
