Nigella is barred from U.S. over drug confession: Domestic Goddess turned back at Heathrow..
UK Daily Mail ^ | April 3, 2014 | Sam Mardsen and Neil Sears

Posted on 04/03/2014 5:34:04 AM PDT by C19fan

Nigella Lawson has been banned from the US because of her court confession that she took cocaine. Humiliatingly, the celebrity cook was stopped from boarding a flight from Heathrow to Los Angeles, the Daily Mail can reveal today. Her television career in the U.S. - she is a judge on talent show The Taste - is now in peril. The 54-year-old ‘Domestic Goddess’ was forced to confess under oath during a trial last year that she had snorted cocaine seven times and smoked cannabis in front of her children. Although Scotland Yard did not act over her confession, the U.S. authorities are taking a tougher stance.

How about if the Brits lift the ban on Michael Savage traveling to the UK we will let Nigella in. :)

Nigella should never have testified on her own behalf. That was a huge mistake and she’s paying a big price. But she shouldn’t be barred from the USA. That’s ridiculous considering we have a druggie in the White House right now. It may be that Clinton was an even bigger drug user than Obama.

She really is a natural beauty. I’ve always liked her cooking show since living in the UK. Kids recently gave me her cookbook. She’s the daughter of former MP Nigel Lawson.

Obama and the EXEMPT in Congress use those drugs now.

Oh, I forgot, “laws” to not apply to the EXEMPT.

I don’t understand this. If publicl7y confessing to drug use was a reason to ban people from the US, we would have no rock concerts involving UK performers.

He was Chancellor of the Exchequer under Thatcher. He was once a dinner guest on her show!

I have all her cookbooks - easy recipes filled with photos of this gorgeous woman. I refuse to buy the new Nigellissima because it has no photos of her and I like her British/American take on cooking. She loves American culture which may be one of the reasons they’re barring her!

"I can’t wait until the next time the Rolling Stones try to enter this country..."

Hah, I saw a story on Facebook that quoted her as saying: "What about Keith F***ing Richards? He wanders in and out of the U.S. like he owns the place. Why is he allowed to keep coming back?"

And of course someone quickly replied: "Well Nigella, it's because he IS Keith "F***ing" Richards and you're not!"

That should become a new standard FR acronym: in before drug warriors justify outrageous government behavior. I’m expecting at any moment some of the usual suspects who vigorously argue for the “War on Drugs” to show up and say what a wonderful thing it is for the U.S. to exclude foreigners on the basis of past drug use.

54 YEARS OLD???!

I'm a happily married man, and I wouldn't trade my wife for anything in the world. I'm just saying that that is simply impressive.

I would think her racist name alone would bar her from entry to the U.S.

Just imagine if someone were named NigDashian.

Well, you can’t even visit Canada if you’ve had a DUI. It’s not like the U.S. is the only country with these laws.

I love full-figured women and confess to having had a crush on the lovely Nigella for a long time.

I’d pull an Obama and let her in on an executive order, the law be d-mned.

Twenty years ago a Canadian guy I know was denied entry to the US at the border because of one misdemeanor cannabis conviction from the 1970s. So this isn’t particularly new, unfortunately.
