Further to my previous post I note from today's copy of Da Heyt that a trawl of documents at Albia's Home Department would seem to suggest that the Home Secretary's then Thai-bride-to-be, Miss Yu, obtained her visa in a period rather shorter than the usual half-decade, to wit six minutes before she actually handed in her visa application form.
I understand that many of my readers will be more than a little concerned at this news and will undoubtedly be tempted to cast a more dubious eye than hitherto over Mr Loon's conduct . I feel, however, that is my duty to put their minds at rest. I myself needed a visa when I first came to Albia(*) and can assure you that one was granted to me within moments of it first being intimated that I might need to come here. People may, at this point, seek to raise the matter of the large crate of potato-based alcohol which changed hands at the same time, but I can assure you that this was a mere token of the Head of News's gratitude at the speed with which matters had been dealt with. So, as you can see, Miss Yu's case is simply an example of the speed and efficiency of the Albian immigration service.
Finally, I should make it clear that this entry has not been written under any kind of duress and that the "urgent review of my visa status" which was, I am told, launched by the immigration service this morning, has in no way influenced me.
(*) I was not married to my dear wife (and native Albian) Ylatea at the time.
