I feel slightly better about the show killing off Irri, now that it appears it was not a creative choice, but that their hands were forced because the actress had some problems with her work visa and couldn't stay in the UK. Seriously, we're a step away from Children of Men with the British building a great wall around their island and deporting all the 'fugees.

American immigration policy is hardly progressive. Our work visa system has gotten increasingly ridiculous recently. Turning away hard working, competent, foreign doctors is troubling here now.--Opark 77 01:53, May 19, 2012 (UTC)
Clarified: Acharia could have stayed on the show quite easily, but the producers decided to write her out for their own reasons.--Werthead (talk) 11:33, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

Especially with Trump (somehow) seeming to still be gaining ground. I wonder how he would fare in Westeros? Or any of the presidential candidates for that matter. Maybe SNL could do a skit about that - called "Game Of Podiums" or something (since "Game Of Chairs" is taken) :) Jimw338 (talk) 04:48, September 14, 2015 (UTC)
I've seen foreign press much amused by Trump's candidacy, but really he's thought of as just a joke candidate; even in the USA mass media is utterly amused that he's gotten as far as he did. He's not "doing well" in "the polls"; the Republican slate of candidates is so poor that the wacky joke candidate is outpolling them all - not a sign he'd do well in a general election.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 15:49, September 14, 2015 (UTC)
