    Did they ever ask you if you had been to Iran?

    It's the principle though. One shouldn't have to be ashamed of visiting muslim/jewish/catholic countries AND spend money to hide the fact you've been there.

    In the past they have, this time they did not.

    It seems to me you can ask to get the stamp on some sort of paper/document instead of your passport when you go to Israel. Or so I've been told.

    If I were to go to Israel, I'd go to Petra in Jordan and you can't not get a stamp at that crossing.

    That's correct, but what Eileen said is also true.

    It would probably be quicker to fly Tel Aviv to Amman and back with the amount of FAFF involved doing that journey and border crossing by land from what I've been told. Amman do a bus straight to Petra anyway.

    Israel give you your stamp on a pre-printed card (that you need to make sure you don't lose) nowadays anyway.

    Well they're certainly not backing down with their first post-massacre edition

    I noted that earlier this evening. I have no idea what to think.

    Weren't 2,000 people massacred in Nigeria over the weekend?

    Does it say LOL or is it LUZ, the signature of the cartoonist?

    Estimates are now 150 died in Nigeria, which isn't that newsworthy considering how many Boko Harum are killing week in week out and the absolute uselessness of the government there. It was widely reported that recent suicide bombers were children but #bringbackourgirls has been forgotten. It would probably get more coverage if there was an angle to blame it on the US or Europe, if only for interests of balance.

    Daring, but I expected nothing less. God they've got BALLS

    I shall pray for the ongoing safety of slothful old Luz, avoiding slaughter last week because he'd overdone the absinthe and Gitanes the night before :disco:

    It kinda makes sense, no? It's the "They won't shut me up, I'll have the last laugh" reaction.

    I thinks it's daft to have a proper debate about the cover without showing it. However the journalist was a guest on Sky News and had no right to override their daft policy.

    It imagine it's meant to work on several levels and ridicule

    The neo-nazis who think all asylum seekers are rapists with their "rapefugees" posters which the drawing clearly borrows from
    The asylum seekers/migrants who were responsible for the rapes and sexual assaults
    Those who are more offended by the mention on the perpetrators' race and asylum status than they are by the actual rapes and sexual assaults

    But it is incredibly tasteless
