UPDATE: Call this strike two.
Fresh off his deportation from Thailand, Gary Glitter has once again been denied entry abroad, this time into Hong Kong.
Chinese authorities told the U.K. Foreign Office shortly after his Wednesday night arrival that Glitter, who has so far refused to return to his native England, was a persona non grata in the region and had been barred from entering Hong Kong.
"It is a matter for the Chinese authorities to decide what action they take now," a British official told the BBC.
Gary Glitter's fear of flying has apparently flown away.
After an hourslong standoff in a Bangkok airport, which began with a brief layover for the recently sprung British glam rocker and included the feigning of a heart attack and a refusal to board a Britain-bound plane, Glitter has finally agreed to exit Thailand.
