My plea then is to the government. Why in this day and age do you have so many

What I got...First of all I’m grateful that I live in a country where I can write a blog post with a title like the one that I have used.Some friends of mine from China - currently living in Sweden - wanted to come and visit me in the UK. My complaints about the processes and paperwork involved in applying for their visa are an entirely different post, but I was at least pacified by the fact that the application could be made online.After my government had extracted £72 from each of my friends
