Snoop: Now Oz says no

Snoop Dogg is starting to pile up extra time off - following the refusal of the UK to grant him a visa to tour with Piff Dodgy over here, now Australia has asked him not to come. Which is less surprising: John Howard's Australia is hardly the most welcoming place at immigration anyway.

Snoop, it seems, is not the sort of bloke you'd want running amok in the wilderness:

"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,"[Immigation minister Kevin] 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."

The question, of course, is why - if Dogg isn't an appropriate bloke for Australia - he was given a visa in the first place.
