You just can't make this crap up!
A US martial arts expert has been barred from entering the UK because the British Home Office believes his “kill or be killed” philosophy could encourage violence or vigilantism.
Tim Larkin, 47, was planning to visit Britain to teach martial arts in London's Tottenham neighborhood, and was also hoping to participate in a Martial Arts Show in Birmingham. But just as he was boarding an airplane in Las Vegas, he received a letter from the UK Border Agency, saying he was barred from entering the country.
“We can confirm that the individual in question is subject to an exclusion order,” a Home Office spokesman was quoted by The Daily Mail as saying. “The Home Secretary will seek to exclude an individual if she considers that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good.”
Larkin, who had no problems visiting the UK three years ago, said the move was a “gross overreaction.”
“I think it’s a gross overreaction, especially with some of the people who are allowed to come in and out of the UK,” Larkin stated.
