Celebrity Big Brother 2012: Help bring Dog the Bounty Hunter to the UK by petitioning for his visa to be granted!
However, there’s been a massive hitch in that as of right now, Dog – whose real name is Duane Chapman – has been refused a visa to end the UK as he has a criminal record.
But of course, as fans of Dog will know, his criminal days are in the long ago past – they date back to the seventies – and he now commits his life to actively promoting a law abiding society…
So to ban him from entering the UK is a beaurocratic nonsense and, unless the decision is overturned, it’s a pedantic and jobsworth stance on the part of the Home Office…
However, we can help persuade the Border Agency to allow Dog into the country by digitally signing a petition that is to be forwarded to the Home Office. I’ll give you all the details you need in a moment, but first, here’s what a Bring Dog To Britain blog has to say of the situation…
Some readers may remember the previous campaign to bring Duane “Dog” Chapman to Britain. It started in mid-2010, when Dog and his family were looking to visit the UK to work with politicians and police forces to improve UK public safety, and to better-prepare our police for dangerous criminals.
Long story short, in 2010, the UK Border Agency denied Dog his visa, owing to his criminal record. A criminal record which dates back to the 1970′s: his pre-bounty hunting life as a motorcycle gang member. Since then, as you’ll no doubt know, Dog has become the most successful bounty hunter in the world; capturing over 7,000 criminals across the USA.
After a long campaign, with plenty of support from the British public, the UK Border Agency finally relented and in early 2011 granted Dog permission to come to the UK. I sincerely hoped that this meant the Chapman family were now able to visit the UK whenever they wanted. I was wrong.
Little over a year later, Dog finds himself back at square one. The UK Border Agency have yet again refused him entry. So, this little blog is back, hoping that as British fans, we can pull together to bring our favourite bounty hunter to Britain. Please keep checking back to this blog for important news updates, and follow our Twitter page @DogToBritain.
As mentioned there, you can sign an online petition to bring Dog to the UK by clicking here, and here’s what the petition’s statement reads…
Accept Duane Chapman’s Visa application to the UK
The UK Border Agency Visa Service
We, the UK fans of Duane Chapman, AKA Dog the Bounty Hunter, are petitioning the UK Border Agency Visa Service, to allow Duane to visit the UK.
Because of Duane’s past conviction, he has been rejected a visa.
Duane, and his family would like to visit the thousands of loyal British fans, that have helped to make Dog the success he is today.
This petition asks that the Border Agency reconsider their decision.
You can also keep track of what’s happening with the situation via a Facebook support page.
I’ll be so devastated if Dog isn’t allowed into the UK. Will you?
If so, please share this article with your friends on Twitter and Facebook and let’s do everything we can to bring Duane to Britain!
