Obama brother refused entry to UK

Barack Obama's half-brother was denied entry to the UK after being accused of a serious crime on an earlier visit, the Home Office has confirmed.

Samson Obama, who lives in Kenya, was on his way to the US presidential inauguration in January when he was stopped at East Midlands Airport.

According to the News of the World, fingerprint tests linked him to an alleged sex attack on a British girl.

He was questioned but not charged over the incident in Berkshire, it added.

'Public good'

A Home Office spokesman said Samson Obama was denied a visa after immigration officers noticed one of his documents was false. That led them to further inquiries.

Samson Obama, who runs a mobile phone shop outside Nairobi, had been planning to make a short break in the UK on his way to Washington.

He eventually took a connecting flight to the US without formally entering the UK.

A UK Border Agency spokesman said in general, Britain would oppose the entry of individuals where their presence was "not conducive to the public good".

Samson Obama is one of several half-siblings of the US president.

Barack Obama Sr left his son when he was two years old and lived most of his life in Kenya, where he fathered a number of other sons and a daughter with three other wives. He died in a car crash in 1982.

Tony - you've started a total of 40 threads on this site, of which, perhaps 10 have been rover or even auto related. That gives you a pretty bad 4:1 ratio of off-topic/on-topic material. Though no one expects 100% all-rover-all-the-time, I don't think its unreasonable to suggest you keep it at least 50/50. This is not an invitation to play a new game of posting lots of marginal rover material to build up your percentage, but rather a suggestion that you post less non-essential material. Like, a lot less.

Yeah, its the misc-chit chat section, but this is scraping the bottom of the barrel of least-essential material. Its just a cut and paste of some news source - there's no opinionated commentary, no nothing, just obscure factoids. It hardly qualifies as a post, its just some material thrown against the wall to see if it sticks.

Jim,
You are correct about the ratio of my rover related posts but i have kept the non rover ones in this & dumb games sections. I would obviously have to cut & paste the facts of the article otherwise it will not be the actual news!! I have dissected it, cut out the irrelevant parts!

This is hardly junk news or something i intended to (throw against a wall to see if it sticks), that would be the gay telitubies thread!

Fair enough, you feel free to post whatever you want, and I'll feel free to delete it indiscriminately, depending on my mood at the time.

Actually, you should be required to place a poll at the beginning of each your threads asking whether or not it should be deleted. Then, depending on the voting, it stays or goes.

Hey Departing90, you've got a while to go try dweb out since your posting privileges are suspended here for 5 days. We can extend that if you like.

Ahhh.... Departing90. Always a source for useless, time wasting bickering. I picture some 10 year old kid with braces and glasses behind all his posts....
