From what I figure, those 22 seconds are the credits.

There's no FAQ specifically dealing with importing discs containing material that has been refused classification, but bear the following in mind:

http://www.bbfc.co.uk/​faqs/​2010/​05/​can-​we-​bring-​back-​videos-​from-​abroad-​that-​are-​not-​currently-​classified/​

Quote:
Although it is not a Customs offence to import an unclassified video or DVD, it must be for your personal use only and the content must not breach the prohibition on the importation of indecent and obscene material which reflects other UK laws (eg the Obscene Publications Acts 1959 and 1964, the Protection of Children Act 1978).

why is it cut if Manga Entertainment can get Strike Witches and Dance in the Vampire Bund passed uncut, that makes no sense?

The same reason Human Centipede was passed uncut but the sequel was denied classification. The content is different.

As a reminder, this is a three minute DVD special with no relevance to the show itself. If it hadn't been brought up it probably wouldn't even have been missed by anyone who doesn't already have the US or Japanese version or without carefully comparing the extras lists.

Well any fans of the show would know what specials were included in the original Japanese release.
