      The BBC weather forecast is specially designed not to upset the Scots ,before the SNP came on the scene . I had always noticed during the Countryfile 5 day forecast , and various other ones in the week , if England & mainly Southern England was having good weather & a rain bearing front was moving in they would say something like ; “The weather is changing for all ,as a warm front brings in cloud & rain to Scotland before moving in to Northern England , but by then ,the rain will be more patchy ,this front will then continue southwards towards the Midlands , by the time it reaches the South & Southeast it will all have fissiled out.”Meaning in Essex we had no rain , & it continued sunny & warm as before .They just can`t bring themselves to say” Scottish Weather , always shite ” Move South if you want good weather !

      Hang on, every weather forecast I’ve ever seen has spent several minutes on the weather in London and the South East. The problem is that BBC weather presenters are too stupid to realise that the North of England is actually split into North West and North East. They get it right with the South though.

    Readers might remember the post I made on the last thread where the BBC denied Jon Simpson ever made the comment complained about:

    “We appreciate your concern and having listened back to the programme this wasn’t the case. During the headlines it was stated:
    “The Militant group Boko Haram releases a video showing scores of girls some of them say they’re Christians who’ve converted to Islam.”
    During the actual report it’s stated:
    “It shows over 100 girls they’re dressed in grey or black Muslim robes chanting the first verse of the Koran. The teenagers are huddled close together. At one point one of the girl’s steps forward looking scared she explains that she’s converted to Islam and calls on her family to convert too.”
    Nevertheless, we acknowledge the strength of your complaint and we can assure you that we’ve registered your comments on our audience log. ”

    A subsequent complaint made during the 5 attempts to elicit a response has resulted in this:

    “We’re sorry our previous response didn’t fully allay your concerns.
    What John Simpson said was:
    “Most or many of those girls in the video were, had been Christian and are now supposedly converted to Islam that’s of course rather disturbing in its own right. Forcible conversion is not an Islamic tradition.”

    We believe John’s comments were an accurate and fair reflection of Islamic tradition. It isn’t the BBC’s role, nor the role of the complaints process to define terms like racism and Islamist.”

    So the initial response was a blatant lie and the comment which I heard was made !

    In addition a comment which is provably wrong is being held by the BBC as fact!

    Worse still a request for the BBC to provide a definition which they use for the word ‘racism’ and ‘Islamist’ has shown that they don’t have a definition and that they don’t actually know what either of them mean !

    It’s left up to the presenter and the corporation will then back the Fascist to the hilt.

    The question is where to go now?

      SOP. Currently it is your, theirs and now ‘our’ (they won’t like that) little secret.
      ‘The question is where to go now?’
      As already shared, it depends on the amount of time, patience and good humour you can muster.
      Especially as you will likely only be getting ground down by a system designed for such a purpose, with little likelihood of what any reasonable person would deem a satisfactory response.
      The BBC will be doing anything… anything (months… years, megabytes, investigators, assessors, secret self-serving internal meetings) to avoid an admission of any failure.
      It will cost the licence fee payer a fortune, but if you are stopped they will deem it worthwhile.
      Clearly this is past drone level as you are keen to persist.
      Next up… ECU. Stand by for a lot of belief from a Director or two, which the BBC appears to think makes a whit of difference if seeking actual answers backed by facts.
      Then, possibly, next year, if it still exists, ‘The Trust’.
      Can go your way; likely won’t. No reason will be given, but probably much more ‘belief’ that the BBC and staff cannot err, as they are divine.
      Evidence in form of a written counter to previous statements would be good to see on a bit more on the audience log though. Once it’s in print they have to include it.
      Not that many see even the ones they can’t bury.

      But then they may no longer be taking written submissions, as they seem to have already decided to abolish the licence fee, as well as having enough stuff to confront the pea brained Lord Hall.

      It could also be the reason for Lord Hall’s latest politically correct left-wing diversity public relations stunt, a knee jerk response by the lefties to any threat from outside the BBC bubble.

    Last night feeling short of something to watch I ended up with Mock the Week which I haven’t watched for some time. Well we had a black panelist and a 37 year old woman panelist so it was obvious that the right tick boxes could be ticked. I would give you their names but I hadn’t a clue who they were, but they were not very funny (particularly the black guy, not racist he just trying too hard and not amusing). But every time Andy Parsons spoke he started with ‘Cameron……..’ and at times just as nasty as Frankie Boyle ever was. I was waiting for the Miliband jokes to counter the bias but they just didn’t happen.

    I hope you lot don’t mind but I’m reporting (this morning) this from the end of the last board where the bBC in a so called world exclusive interview Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman sentenced to death for marrying…..a Christian, who on being released was rearrested by the peaceful Islamic police.

    Well, she’s been released again and on talking to the bBC, she speaks without looking at the camera, by thanking the Sudanese people, the Sudanese police , showing that she is terrified of being in Sudan and the twat of a bBC reporter asks her:
    “Do you consider yourself a Christian?”
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-28050753
    Excuse me, a woman who until a few days ago was going to get her neck stretched for the made up charges of leaving ‘Isalm’ The same country which dragged its feet in releasing her after saying it would, (Over 3 weeks for the paperwork to be sorted.) Who was arrested again by the state on trumped up charges days after getting released and is now living in fear inside the American Embassy and the bBC feel the need to try and trip this woman up by asking such a damning question inside such an intolerant Country where even calling a teddybear ‘Mohammed’ gets you a jail sentence.
    The same bBC I should add which tiptoes on eggshells around Muslims every chance it gets doesn’t afford the same to persecuted Christians inside Islamic countries.
    The bBC, the propaganda arm of intolerant Islam, paid for by the British taxpayer.

    I wrote on the last board this morning how the bBC blames the fact that Muslims living in the Uk are packing their bags in which to relocate to Syria and Iraq in which to live a life of rape,Murder and theft as dictated by the Koran. Want to guess whom the bBC blame for these village (And lets be honest wearing dresses, sporting a beard and promoting an intolerant stone-age ideology they really do look like they are the only Jihadist in the village) The British Police for not stopping these men from going
    The head of Wales’ counter-terrorism unit has denied that police are failing in their efforts to combat the radicalisation of young Muslims.

    Have you watched the video on that article, the bBC allow the very close knit Islamic community to opine their fears and instead of putting their hands up and admitting , yes we have idiots within our midst who subscribe to wanting to kill for Allah. They instead (encouraged by the bBC) blame everybody and anybody bar the reflection in the mirror.
    Now compare that stance with how the left demand that:
    1) Catholics sort out their act for dodgy old men
    2) UKIP sort out their act over racists
    3) The Police sort out their act over..Racists
    4) The Army sort out their act over Racists
    5) The Tory party sorts out its act over..Bigots
    6) The Football league sorts out its act over….Racists
    In fact the left, stamp down hard on everybody bar the usual suspects:
    Labour MPs,Liberal MPs,Respect MPs and of course Muslims.

    What I am getting at is perfectly illuminated by how the bBC allow the Islamic father of a Terrorist inside Syria/Iraq to say on the above bbC article:
    “Ahmed Muthana, father of Nasser and Aseel Muthana, has claimed police have failed to win the trust of Muslim communities in Cardiff because the Prevent team was mainly made up of white officers.

    Now if somebody here was to say, that too many Muslims are employed by the Police. You’ll have the bBC thought police demanding the person be prosecuted for a hate crime. Yet when Non-Whites in the Uk come out with such, why its silence is golden time.

    The bBC, the biggest problem regards race relations in the UK.

      Pounce I am sure you recognise this complaint about the police as being preparation of the ground, for blaming the police if any of those who do return commit a terrorist act. So the BBC will run lines such as:
      a) if the police had been doing their job they wouldn’t have gone, so its the police’s fault.
      b) if we had been more accommodating as a country then they wouldn’t have been radicalised in the first place. So its our own fault
      c) if we round up all those who we believe may commit terrorist acts then we will alienate the whole community and of course infringe their human rights which are certainly worth more than the lives of UK citizens
      d) it is just a tiny minority, whom all other Muslims in the UK detest and to whom they offer no support, so you can see how damaging c) above would be.

      We could write the BBC news and current affairs comments now so predictable and wrong headed are they.

      There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always — do not forget this, Winston — always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.

    On the VD show, now, Derbyshire is discussing the recruitment of the new Chair of the BBC Trust.

    Invited guest, the patronising Harriet Harman is making a fool of herself sharing her conspiracy theories about why the Government have changed the job spec. and then gets into a spat with Christopher Bland denying that she ever suggested a conspiracy (she did).

    But her handwringing pièce de résistance, delivered in the most patronising way, so typical of Harman, was that this job was so important…it couldn’t be done in two days (rather than the three originally specified). ‘The chair represents the people who pay their £145 licence fee…ALL OF WHO LOVE THE BBC’

    Not me.

    Once again Harman shows that she is totally deluded.

      The BBC can and does often get away with it by bare faced denial and judicious ‘story evolution’, but elected pols are much less safe (other than FoBs – Friends of the BBC).
      If that suggestion is recorded the counter claim looks utterly barking. Well, a bit more than that idiot claim on the public’s behalf.

    On the eve of Ramadam the bBC bring out yet another pro-Islam story this time about the first mosque to be opened in the UK.
    ‘The birthplace of Islam in Britain’
    The first mosque founded in England, which has stood as a derelict shell for many years, has been refurbished and reopened to Merseyside’s 20,000 Muslims.

    Yes the bBC would like to inform the British about the wonders of Islam with regards this first mosque; But hang on what this from 2012
    The legacy of Victorian England’s first Islamic convert
    On a bleak, wet and windy day in Liverpool the old Georgian, white-stoned building which once housed England’s first registered mosque looks quite dull.

    And what’s this from 2009:
    England’s first mosque

    Mind you, I did love this little snippet about why the first mosque was built by William Henry Quilliam. He wanted to counter the view:
    However, Prof Ansari says that deciding to convert to Islam was not a simple choice for Quilliam.

    “there were these ideas about Islam being a violent faith.

    Ideas bBC?

    Anyone catch the wall-to-wall coverage of the Jimmy Saville scandal in yesterday’s news? Pretty muscular stuff, delivered with typical BBC holier-than-though indignation.

    But the one question that was carefully ignored was fundamental responsibility: in other words, why this vile creep was able to get unchallenged access to so many vulnerable people.

    The answer, of course, is that he was a BBC celebrity and such is the power of this bullying, self-regarding, grasping, lying, bigoted, treacherous organisation that nobody thought it thinkable to curtail or question him – even when the evidence was there before their cowardly eyes!

    It occurs to me that there is a parallel with Britain’s wider decline: just as the stinking BBC pimped for Saville, so it did in far more significant areas such as immigration, the EU and multiculturalism. And many other things too. With far greater damage caused.

    Yet still we suckle at its treacherous teat. Unbelievable.

      The one question that persists in being not answered in the Savile case is ‘where’s the evidence?’ There are hundreds of allegations but considering that the original ITV allegations have been shown to be fundamentally untrue just what evidence has Yewtree uncovered? So far all of the reports I have seen contain nothing but allegations which the report writers believe should be taken on face value. In most of the cases they can’t even place Savile in the same building at the same time as the ‘victim.’

      This is important because there is a huge danger, revealed in recent celeb trials, of the CPS treating allegations as incontrovertible evidence. They are not and if we want a justice system that works they must never be allowed to become so.

      This goes way over whether Savile was a perv or whether or not the BBC deserves a good kicking. It is fundamental to our justice system; no evidence, no conviction.

      It’s not a blow to Cameron at all, I’d suggest. He got to look all anti-EU whilst doing something he knew would make not the slightest bit of difference, but I don’t expect the BBC to look at that line.

      Thus convincing the gullible that the Tories will oppose the EU.

      With respect, I have spent quite a bit of time in various Arab, Muslim, countries, and although not in Saudi Arabia, I have naturally spent a few periods during Ramadan in such countries.

      The rules in these countries I have visited are actually quite sensible.

      Fundamentally, it is very rude to eat, drink, etc., in public whilst the majority population is abstaining from these activities, according to their religion. Anyone who has ever been in these countries actually will know that most ‘international’ hotels will always provide eating and drinking facilities for non-muslims, but discreetly, with the restaurant access behind a screen, or whatever, so local people cannot see into the restaurant. In addition, it is usually very easy to quench your thirst in private, without being observed by local nationals, in whose country you may be a visitor, and whom you might offend.

      The traditional feast of Iftar, available in local restaurants immediately after sun-down, has often been one of the best meals I have ever had in these countries, although, of course, alcohol is not served (as is usually the custom in such countries, in any case.)

      I would be the first to complain if anyone tried to impose such rules in my country, but it is, after all, their country, and their religious beliefs, so we should not abuse these, and it really is NOT difficult to live your life quite normally without offending the indigenous population in these countries.

      Whilst we may not like these rules, they are not difficult to comply with, and still lead a pretty normal, western, life

        Yes, Richard you make some interesting points and I have no problem whatsoever with Muslims abiding by their faith in their lands and westerners complying; When in Rome… However, I think George was comparing the willingness of Muslim lands to deport people who do not comply with their wishes to our own pathetic impotence in such matters. Our gormless government allowed foreign hate preachers to take control of our streets; these creatures were effectively telling us that they detested our way of life, but were still happy to take our free housing and dole cheques. Whilst in their lands you might be deported for drinking a glass of wine in Blighty you can be a multiple terrorist and it still takes decades to get rid of you.

          Jeff (and Maturecheese below)….I was responding, really, to the article linked in George’s post, which didn’t mention anything about any other countries. As I said, I would have very serious issues with anyone trying to impose such rules in my country, so to that extent, I agree with what you say.

          Jihadwatch has, however, reported this particular issue almost with incredulity that such things might happen in an independent country, which, in my view, is a complete non-story.

          As to the inability of our country to take issue with what are essentially terrorism-encouraging activities, then I am afraid that we have to look no further than the BBC as an example of how we, in the UK, are willing to overlook, or even excuse such behaviours with virtually no sanctions whatsoever. And that is the real issue we need to address. Taking umbrage at things about which we really have no business complaining, does nothing to strengthen our hand on dealing with matters domestic, and simply serves to justify other peoples’ view about how intolerant we may be in the UK.

    Anyway the purpose of the post is to mention that in previous years, Laverne has not been able to resist the temptation on letting her personal, hard left political leanings bleed into her BBC presentation.

    Council boss debunks BBC report on B’Haram attack
    The Caretaker Chairman of Dikwa Local Government Area of Borno State, Ali Modu Gana, has expressed disappointment with the media report credited to British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) morning, Hausa service program, on Tuesday, which states that “some Boko Haram terrorists invaded Dikwa on Monday and set ablaze the council secretariat after chasing away security operatives deployed to the area”.

    Gana said: “there was no Boko Haram attack in Dikwa as carelessly and unprofessionally reported by the BBC, describing the report as baseless, unfounded, untrue aimed at misleading the public and give terrorists a cheap publicity”.

    The council boss stated this to journalists in Maiduguri, the state capital, while reacting to BBC Hausa program aired on Tuesday morning.

    Gana also denied BBC source, which they claimed to have spoken with him in an interview. where the source said, “the military and other security operatives ran away when the terrorists invaded Dikwa before they set ablaze the council’s secretariat,” maintaining that no any place was attacked as widely reported, and for BBC which is one of the respected international media, will concoct a story that didn’t exist/happen shows how members of the public and the audience are been misled, misinformed, misguided and faced with media imperialism.

        Although I dislike Cameron intensely and believe that his opposition to the appointment of Junker is just a ploy to attract ex-Tory Ukippers back into the fold, if he had any real political nous, he could say he is in good company being a lone political voice. Winston Churchill was “Billy No Mates” throughout the 1930s when he was warning the British political establishment of the dangers of Hitler and the Nazi Germany. If I recall, the BBC banned Churchill from voicing his opinions about Germany on the wireless (as it was known as back then).

    Dear Mr Jackson

    Reference CAS-2741141-G0PK90

    Thanks for your contact regarding ‘BBC News’ broadcast on 20 May 2014.

    I note that you believe a report regarding a UKIP rally in Croydon was broadcast ‘throughout the day’.

    Firstly please accept my apologies for our delay in responding.

    I note that you believe a report regarding a UKIP rally in Croydon was broadcast ‘throughout the day’. We have checked and can only find two reports broadcast on BBC television on 20 May about this. These were broadcast on the BBC London regional news programme at 6.30pm and 10.25pm. Neither of these featured an interview with ‘a Romanian woman’ or anyone claiming to be one and we can only assume that you saw this report elsewhere.

    We do recognise that you feel we should have investigated and reported more on the background of those who appeared at the rally to protest against UKIP. In both of our television reports we described those people as ‘protestors’ and made no reference to their nationality. We are satisfied that our reporting was factually correct but appreciate that you feel there were other elements which the story may have explored. We only have limited time to cover any particular story and our editors use their judgment to decide how they should be covered. We do recognise that not everyone will agree with their decisions though.

    Thank you again for contacting us.

    Kind Regards

    P****** ****
    Ok so I didn’t see anything about the UKip “carnival” and I imagined they ran a story about a Romanian woman who was working in a hotel and unhappy with UKP. As I don’t live in London my imagination must be bloody good as it follows this story exactly. They only “referred” to rent a mob as protesters. Just like their web page then. Any comments? Before I pursue this further.

      The BBC can’t be trusted.
      Look on the BBC website http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-27492711 That states “20 May 2014 Last updated at 23:33” and states “People carrying banners argued with party activists over Mr Farage’s recent comments about Romanians.”
      Yet, according to a snapshot [http://web.archive.org/web/20140521053814/http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-27492711] of 21 May that page stated “Romanians carrying banners argued with party activists over Mr Farage’s recent comments about their fellow countrymen.
      So at some time after 20 May 2014 23:33 an unrecorded edit was made to change “Romanians” to “people”. The BBC is trying to rewrite the past and fool you. They were caught out at the time and are trying to cover it up.
      The deception on the fake protesters was exposed on the day by C4


      Given the above, how likely is it that the BBC is being truthful now about what was broadcast on the day?

      I was surprised at the near-unanimity of the headlines in those papers – which have a wide political spread. In short – Cameron stood against the appointment of Junker, lost – and this could bring the idea of Britain leaving the EU a lot closer, a good deal more likely.

      The whole spat has shown how unlikely it is that Cameron could win any real concessions in a re-negotiation. Which is exactly the UKIP point – why waste time on it, the EU will not give us even a fraction of what we need, and meanwhile it carries on introducing more and more restrictions on the UK’s trade, especially on the City which is seen in Europe as “a bad thing”.

      Here is Farage talking about the implications of leaving Europe – as usual, he gives straight answers and sounds well-informed :

But, in fact, it’s always just a bunch of Gavin Esler’s left-wing dinner-party chums. Today there were four EUrophiles – including swivel-eyed Abdel Barri (‘mad Barri’) Alwan, who’s on nearly every week – telling us how “necessary” our continued EU membership is, how “incompetent” Cameron is and how much “Britain is hated in the EU”. (Sadly, there’s never anyone there to say how much the EU is hated in Britain.)

      I lost all respect when they had one when Prezza Kirchner last needed some fifth column support in-country when the economic stats in her flyblown dump needed the population distracting away from, so Gav & the guys all decided the UK and Islands beefing up defences was us ‘rattling sabres’. Rather ignoring how staying passive before did not end well.
      The broadcast monopoly of the UK offering a pulpit to undermine the UK using third party hostile opinion formers strikes me as perverse.
      Though they doutbtless feel it is ‘unique’.

      Surely if Britain is so hated in the EU as Alwan opines then surely Britain should leave them too it. Both sides would then be happy.

    As a rule, I don’t watch Newsnight now, but have done so over the past few nights. So it was as enlightening as it was unexpected to see Andrew Neil in the chair last night.

    Neil was intelligent, probing, combative and EVERYONE, right, left or centre, was challenged fairly and with balance. Last night Newsnight delivered; viewers actually got an insight into what the guests’ positions really were.

    Compare that with the drab, weak left leaning ‘Video Guardian’ that Newsnight has become… particularly the Hacking ‘interview’ with Tom Watson on Wednesday. Compare Emily Maitliss’ performance with that of Neil (you can actually, for Neil interviewed him the following day on the DP).

    Maitliss in that ‘chat’, showed why she is little more than an autocue jockey who should stick to reading the news. She is stilted, has no insight, Neil quite simply leaves her for dead as an interviewer.

    I have the suspicion that Maitliss only comes alive when she has a Tory to get her teeth into (which is par for the course with Newsnight). Her interview with Tom Watson got of to an unpromising, if not unsurprising start, when she began her questions by addressing him as, ‘Tom’.

    It’s those little things, ‘Tom’ or ‘Ed’, as opposed to ‘Cameron’ or ‘Osborne’ or ‘Murdoch’ that betray the activism in the BBC and whose politics they are more comfortable (or on first name terms) with.

    I ask myself, am I being unkind, even abusive to Maitliss? No, the BBC professes to be the ‘world’s most trusted broadcaster’. If it want’s to prove that, it needs root and branch reform and should start with a clear out in its flagship news programme.

    In comparison with Katz, Maitliss and the rest, Andrew Neil has shown that Newsnight is not fit for purpose.

    INBBC-Al Jazeera-Muslim Brotherhood-Qatar-World Cup bid.

    Given INBBC’s staff, cultural and technical links to Al Jazeera (which has given political support to Muslim Brotherhood, as in Egypt), are Beeboids really able to be politically impartial on allegations of Emirate of Qatar’s World Cup bribery?

    “Qatar: UK media investigation into World Cup bribery allegations is ‘racist’ and ‘Islamophobic.'”

    By Robert Spencer.

    [excerpt]:-

    “’But just what is ‘racist’ about bribery?,’ asks Al Arabiya — or about investigating bribery? This bizarre response from Qatar to charges that it bought the right to host the 2022 World Cup shows the hollowness of the charges of ‘racism’ and ‘Islamophobia’ that are constantly leveled at counter-jihadists. Just as there is nothing racist or Islamophobic about investigating bribery, so also there is nothing racist or Islamophobic about opposing jihad terror.”

        Sky have been reporting this incident on their news ribbon all day.

No mention at all on the BBC, even on their teletext news page, although they are going overboard with Blunkett’s gossip about Prince Charles’ suggestion to expand grammar schools. Is this more newsworthy to the Beeb than a vicious gang rape?

          It’s now getting so you can tell the ethnicity of the perps by how it’s reported.

          If they are white, they say so. If any connection, however tenuous, can be made to the EDL, UKIP or any of the Armed Services, so much the better. This will then provide your headline, hopefully for several days and will also give scope for a wider debate on how any or all of those dreadful far-right organisations can be banned and/or criminalised.

          If they are non-white, they become “men”. If they are Muslims, they become “asians”, but only if you really, definitely can’t avoid mentioning it at all.

    Lots of colourful pictures of a Pride festival in London, celebrating how various individuals enjoy their sexual activities. Well bully for them. But why did they include a ridiculous and tasteless mock up of the assassination of JFK, and why on Earth did the BBC see it worth reporting without any explanation? I fail to see any connection between Kennedy’s assassination, lesbianism and preferences for where certain men like to stick their dicks. Something to do with rights for necrophiliacs perhaps?

    Written by the daughter of a miner, produced in Hampstead by the son of millionaire Sir Peter Hall, no challenge to his views and assumptions at all. And bloody hell but he was ignorant about engineering.

      On Radio 4 after that, they had a drama about Jihad. A very clever sister, to a would be Syrian Jihadist, out smarted her slightly divvy younger brother. You see the older sister had a first in Islamic Theology of the Golden Age. So she said Islam is a religion of peace and that her divvy brother had got it wrong.

      But why was this drama on Radio 4? The listenership of Radio 4 is hideously white. Why not put it on the Asian Network? Or was this done to make Liberals feel good about themselves?

      Interesting note, this play was written by Mike Harris, not a name that conjures up Mecca. I wonder if he has a first in Islamic Theology of the Golden Age?

        Update in thinking. The BBC is so fake and phoney. To defend Islamic Jihad they have to hire a lefty diversity whore to write some fatwa agitprop.

        The whole play sounded so BBC line, with the same phrases. I don’t blame the actors they need the cash! The BBC is a fugazi, their claim to be impartial is a lie. They couldn’t even find a Mohammedan to write a script denouncing Jihad. Instead they got some white middle class man to do it (who the BBC claim to hate).

      Instead of issuing an official Foxtrot Oscar, it fell back on the technicality that in order to claim asylum, one has to be physically present in the country. So, presumably, if this obnoxious primitive manages to sneak into the country in some way, they will take an application for asylum seriously.
