The UK may as well close down the Embassy in Yaounde.

This is a diplomatic repudiation of the Biya Regime, which went into the British Commonwealth simply as a strategy to dampen Anglophone nationalism. PM John Major failed to sense the danger.

We remember Paul Biya's longing to create a Francophone State and his description of English as "imperialist" in the recent Paris interview.

Mr Biya has also resisted the creation of an authentic Electoral Commission and stabbed the Constitution badly. That is uncivilized behavior typical of jungle VIPs.

That is a deterioration of relations given that status of Yaounde as a Commonwealth Capital. It means the UK seeks to shut the door on UDEAC by raising the difficulty of obtaining an entry VISA.

Afterall, there is no difficulty in Yaounde and Accra sharing the database which itself can be located on servers in London. Moving the Yaounde VISA service to Accra is a tacit denial of service to UDEAC immigrants wanabe. Cameroon also loses on invisible earnings due to other UDEAC nationals travelling to Yaounde for UK VISAs.

This pays for President's Biya chicanery over the years especially on the cardinal issue of an Independent Electoral Commission in which the the British Government and Commonwealth had invested much capital. Biya's anglophobic description of English as imperialist in the infamous Paris interview - a "no no" to a wanabe Commonwealth leader, has not been helpfull to Cameroon's interest.

Ebonylad

This is just unacceptable and humiliating to Yaounde's status as a bilingual commonwealth capital and seat of a regional organisation CEMAC.What is the cost benefit to the HC in Accra as compared to Yaounde?This newly so called UK Border Agency seems to be a pain in the ass than anything helpful or good.
