Snoop Dogg denied entry to Australia

CONTROVERSIAL US rapper Snoop Dogg has been denied entry to Australia because of his ever-growing list of criminal convictions.

The cancellation of the visa for the rapper, record producer and actor means he will not appear at the MTV Australian video music awards this weekend.
Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said Snoop Dogg would be issued a notice of intention to cancel his visa after he failed to pass the requisite character test.
Snoop Dogg, 35, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, pleaded no contest to felony gun and drug charges in the US earlier this month.
“The reality is in relation to this man, that he was given a warning the last time, he has a whole string of convictions, and just two weeks ago I was told he was convicted on a number of charges again and sentenced to three years’ imprisonment on two, and three years’ imprisonment on another, with five years’ probation and a suspended sentence,” Mr Andrews said on Macquarie radio today.
“He has been denied entry into the United Kingdom because he was caught with others causing affray at Heathrow Airport. He doesn’t seem the sort of bloke we want in this country.”
Mr Andrews said Snoop Dogg could respond to the cancellation of his visa.
“The character test in relation to this involves a substantial criminal record, which is … being sentenced to a term of imprisonment of 12 months or more.
“It can also include a person’s associations, their past and present criminal conduct, and their general conduct.
“This man has been a member of a Los Angeles gang – and is still associated with it apparently – that’s been involved in murder, robberies and drug dealing in the LA area,” Mr Andrews said.

Oh Bugger Snoop! You got a bad rep now! We have a history of bush rangers – Ned Kelly, weirdo killing psychos [Martin Bryant who killed 35 and injured 37 at Port Arthur] and criminals [Mark 'Chopper' Reed] of the highest standard here in Australia but now the screws won’t be having you.

Incidently, Dad’s birthday – 28 April – is also the anniversary of the day Martin Bryant did his thing.

As for Chopper:

Or you can be Chopper’s MySpace friend and listen to his awesome rap music.


Anyway – I have to go now cause Mum wants me to go to Kmart big sale on all undies etc. She got up at 7am to roast a chook. She is already nagging me I didn’t eat enough breakfast. [Did she see the size of my arse yesterday?] Yeah man, just like home…
