Three Kings Denied Visas

Christmas was already in doubt, it seemed, in the UK this year when it was reported that Santa had failed the CRB check.

A year ago, new Heath and Safety rules were brought in over Christmas songs.

Now there’s a cloud of doubt over the forthcoming visit of the Three Kings to the Canary Islands on January 5th.

Reports reached us this morning that the three men in question have been intercepted by Frontex over visa issues. It seems that although there is some doubt over their origin and, indeed they are undocumented, it is most likely that they hail from either modern Iran or Iraq and, as such, require entry visas into Spain.

The issue is also complicated because of controlled substances found on their person. And, in addition, Spanish border agents seem to have mistaken their ships of the desert as cayucos, a craft that is popular with the many illegal immigrants who try to enter Europe from Africa.
