Visit Britain Last? And so Malaysians might have to have visas when we travel to the UK, as early as next year! The BBC News report states "bogus passports, criminal acts and terrorism" as factors in the profiling of certain nationals as "risky".
Despite a long, shared history and thousands of Malaysian students in the UK, Malaysia has been lumped in the good company of Brazil, Namibia, South Africa, Venezuela, Bolivia, Botswana, Lesotho, Mauritius, Swaziland, and Trinidad and Tobago as countries whose citizens will need visas to visit the UK "unless they 'sigificantly reduce' the risks they pose".
In the early 1980s, Malaysia launched the Buy British Last campaign and told them to bully themselves instead.
A note of thanks to Mik in the UK for the heads-up and to Artic Turban for the early perspective on the news left under my previous posting.
