Why in the world were you detained?? And then sent back?

Let us know how the saga goes, and if the BBC picks up the story.

And it will be easier to read if don't use all upper case.

:? Hi Elliot,sorry,I'm an artist and a prog upper case geek.I was detained the first time because the airline sold me a one way ticket.I was ill informed and that was partially my mistake.I read that all you need is a round trip ticket and a passport to stay in the UK for six months or less.My second attempt I purchased a roundtrip ticket,I had my passport along with a computer printout from my airline stating that I only needed the ticket and passport to be accepted.The UK Border officers didn't and wouldn't see it that way.I was detained,abusively searched and placed in a makeshift cell/jailroom,i.e.,treated like a criminal.Then,later that day escorted back on the plane to Boston,USA after being searched three more times (duh!)
I have never been so humiliated in my life.All I'm guilty of is falling in love with an angel who just happens to live in South UK.Now I'm attempting it yet again with a lawyer,support from Rick Wakeman on planetrock.com,a TV show over there called "Watch Dog"and possibly the BBC News will pick it up.On the planetrock forum many nice people are supporting us to.
Pray for us Ell. I hope this works before I go broke.$10,000 lost already,not to mention the pain and suffering.Her daughter,who has special needs is very upset because she has been telling friends that I'm gonna be her stepdad.This is the most emotional experience I've ever had.Now I've seen the abuse of equal rights,up close and personal.
Thanx for your interest and concern.

:oops: I forgot,add another $1500 for the room I'm staying in plus I had to purchase a laptop to avoid hellacious phone bills.
I suspect I'll leave Boston this week and travel to my younger son's home in Deleware.This will progress as soon as I fill out my visa application online and contact a good international lawyer.This may also be expensive but I am seemingly gathering support over there,hopefully here to and plus the fact I KNOW I"M IN THE RIGHT!!
My SUV,all my vinyl records,CD's,DVD's,guitars,amps and art supplies are sitting in a hot,sealed shipping container on a dock here in the USA awaiting to be shipped to the UK.The storage fees are mounting and I can just imagine my lifetime record collection melting in that hot shipping container.So much is irreplaceable.I've been collecting records since rock'n'roll started in 1954.$4028.00 to ship and $1091.00 to have the container delivered to my baby's home in the UK.All paid for already.
Any support from human rights activists would be well appreciated.I'm at wits end and stressed out as I type this.............I don't usually whine but my angel over there has been crying her eyes out along with her daughter.I figured I could help her because everything is so expensive in the UK.Our US Dollars are only worth half over there so we were planning on marrying and settling here in the USA.Her daughter loves the USA and the Simpsons.We also promised to take her to Disneyworld in Orlando,Fl where my older prog/rock son and her penpal lives.How nice that would be,ay mate?That doesn't sound like criminal activity to me unless I'm completely out of touch.I always say"do your best and f**k the rest"
Otherwise you go insane.Am I?hmmmmm..................
rabidyesfan and @planetrock.com-kellart-myangel is "Ladylovespink"(Pink Floyd of course)She also loves Jeff Beck and Les Paul.I turned her on to Stevie Ray Vaughan and rekindled her love of YES.
Cool gal.

Rabideyesfan, I am very surprise of that kind of experience you have live ??? for an American man ?? you don't come from Afghanistan or Iran, Pakistan,Mali, Senegal, Mauritania,etc.., in France what you have live is done to Arab or Black people coming from these countries with no passport , they go into a kind of jail , and after some days or weeks the police flew them away to their country . (I don't want to say that these people merit that, they are so poor, so they play their live when they come in Europe, in boats,etc..)
I have never heard in my life, in France that an American has been flew away to America, it is perhaps because you haven't had a return ticket ??
Perhaps a British man in this forum could better explain your bad experience than me ??
Personaly I went in Chile in 1979 when there was Pinochet , I haven't had problem with the Police!!
A best friend of me is married with a Romanian girl, he has known her in 1980 when he travelled in Romania when there was Ceaucescu, it was very hard for him for bringing her in France, (2 years after), he never had these problems,
But the times have changed and now we are living into a completely crazy world, and sad

Ditto what minou38190 said. Usually Americans don't have a problem traveling to western Europe. I wish you the best. You can't control love.

Good luck!

:lol: To Elliot and the friends of prog/rock/living/thinking......Thank you so very much for your responses.They warm our hearts.Pink and I have been blessed by all of you here and at planetrock.com/forum.Rick Wakeman even chimed in with support airing our problem and a station promoter got us in touch with the UK television show"Watch Dog" Pink and I stayed up late last night submitting our story to them.
This morning I actually talked to a human at the British Consulate in Boston and all my questions and concerns were addressed.Tomorrow I fill out the application forms and set an appointment for an interview to clear my name and a visa to enter the UK in about a week.
You are so right Elliot.You can't stop LOVE!!! Yes sang "Love Conquers All" and I agree.Now if only Jon Anderson can beat off that asthma attack and get back to inspiring "All Good People"with more "Time And A Word".We need some "Perpetual Change"in our enviornment,our children,our brains,etc. Jimmy Buffett said we should "Mental Floss"and Pink Floyd can stop the "Dogs Of War".Roger Waters says "It All Makes Perfect Sense"pounds,dollars and pence........It's a bloody miracle.......

I hope everything works out this time. Unfortunately this sort of stuff is becoming more common as some countries are consumed by paranoia. And typically when you have trouble entering a country once (i.e. the time you went there without a return ticket), you get flagged in their computers for future visits. The US have been getting pretty bad; I read not long ago about a respected professional who had moved to the US from Canada about 20 years ago, had a family and built a successful career; he recently went back to Canada for a vacation, then wasn't allowed back in the US because he'd smoked marijuana once back in the 60's. I also had a friend who was marrying someone in the US get turned back at the border a few times before they finally had their wedding in Canada instead and then moved down to the US (but since he lived near the US border it wasn't as expensive as your problems). It sounds like the UK are following a similar path.

:roll: Hi Ian,Thanx for your response.Today I hope to finish the application for my visa to the UK.The British Consulate,here in Boston asked me to do this and print copies of it,then set an appointment with them for an interview to meet and greet,hopefully clear my name from their computers,submit the application and qualify for my visa.Only when I have a gaurantee of my entrance to the UK will I purchase a plane ticket.I can't afford anymore setbacks.If they can;t assure me then my girlfriend will come to the USA.IF THAT DOESN'T WORK WE'LL MEET IN CANADA!!!LOVE WILL NOT BE STOPPED!!!As I've said before,it seems the terrorists have won.Now we seek the enemy and they are us.I've learned lately that the UK has had to change some of their laws due to so many jerks trying to enter with false passports and visas.This,in turn, makes it hard on innocent travelers.I've been led to feel like I'm guilty until proven innocent.In the end we hope our dillema will be made known to otherss so they don't encounter these heartaches.We are all over the forum on planetrock.com(the UK's biggest classic rock station) and we've submitted our story to a TV show called Watch Dog over there.We hope some good comes from all this.
Thanx again,
rabidyesfan (kellart)& Ladylovespink 4everxxxxxxxxxxx
