It seems that Michael Jackson may keep his forthcoming visit to London a low key affair, by just "sneaking in, and sneaking out" according to his spokesman.
The visit has been criticised by some Labour MP's and child welfare groups who, forgetting the time honoured principle that a man is innocent until proven guilty, want the Home Secretary to ban his visit because of the allegations of child abuse.
Mark Tami, Labour MP for Alyn and Deeside, has written to the Home Secretary appealing for him to step in to stop the visit.
It seems that Home Office is refusing to discuss Jackson's visit, but has told reporters that anyone entering the UK is assessed in the same way.
In brief, the rules on immigration mean that civil servants will determine whether any individual could be refused entry; "..if there is a reason that their presence is deemed to be not conducive to the public good..".
In my view, until he is proven guilty, he should be allowed to enter the UK; after all, we allow a good number of alleged terrorists to reside here.
