Australia has troubles enough without importing more, they say:
Rapper Snoop Dogg has been banned from entering Australia after failing a character test, according to officials.
....The 35-year-old had his visa cancelled after recently pleading no contest to gun and drug charges in the US.
"He doesn't seem the sort of bloke we want in this country," Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews told Sydney's Macquarie Radio.
"This man has been a member of a Los Angeles gang, and is still associated with it apparently, that's been involved in murder, robberies and drug dealing in the LA area," Mr Andrews added.
....And last month he was forced to scrap his UK tour with fellow rapper P Diddy after authorities denied him a visa.
On a previous visit to the UK, the rapper and members of his entourage spent a night in jail after being accused of starting a fight at Heathrow Airport.
He was also held overnight by police in Sweden on suspicion of using drugs.
