      A Kazakh artist who was born without arms says that he could not get permission to enter the UK last month because he could not give fingerprints.
      Karipbek Kuyukov planned to attend an anti-nuclear conference in Edinburgh.
      But he got a letter from the British Consulate in Istanbul saying his "biometrics were of poor quality" and asking him to resubmit his application.
      The UK Home Office said his visa was not refused and it may have been the result of a "miscommunication".
      Mr Kuyukov, 44, who was forced to cancel his attendance at the conference, spoke of his disappointment.

      Just typical of the UK, we have thousands of people coming in every day that are not wanted here and as APS said someone wants to enter who is genuine and coming here for a reason and he is unable to because they do not taken into consideration people like him. Makes me wonder about this Country sometimes.

      Yes, such weird happenings all around the World, poor him. He must have been very disappointed and also a poor excuse if you ask me.
