Our Gurkha Friends

Post by Bob_H » Fri Apr 24, 2009 1:54 pm

It seems that the Government have only partially answered the needs of the Gurkha soldiers who wish to take up residence in this country (about 100 will be affected by the new ruling by the Home Office!). Against the thousands of others that legally or illegally find their way into the country it is a disgraceful situation.

Couldn't agree more Bob, I'm ashamed of what this pack of politicians decide in our name. What a reward for those who have put themselves forward for our (not their) battles in comparison to the Indians thrown out of Uganda, Pakistani freeloaders and all the illegals from parts of the world who have done nothing at all for this country apart from take all the freebies they can get.

The sooner this lot are out of government, the better.

I'll be making sure that I'll be asking potential politicians (of all parties), what they intend to do about such subjects as the Ghurka question, the decisions by Scottish politicians that affect us English whilst their electorate are getting away with all sorts of hand outs not available to us.

Don't think the English are much better off than the Ghurkas.

Looks like we'll have to whinge a lot more.

And what about McGuiness and his death threats ? Suppose some squaddies will have to give him protection. Another joke. There's a good dozen or so in NI politics that should be exterminated.

i am disgusted by this government, they have betrayed the gurkhas and it is a disgrace that they do not show any loyalty to these brave and loyal soldiers. i have just signed up for the gurkha justice campain. i think that perhaps all of us ex-service men & women should band togeather and march on parliment in protest and support of our gurkha friends.

Just read this article in The Times online ,
I think the Government have got something the wrong way around.
Thousands of parasites from all over the world pour into our Airports and Ferry terminals everyday,
with no intention of giving anything to benefit the Nation. They bring crime , terrorism, disease,s not normally associated with western Europe,try to destroy our way of life saying we are racist for singing a certain song, reading a certain book, celebrating our christian holidays, flying our flags, on our Saints days.
I could go on.
I have signed the petition, in full support of the Gurkhas, THEY have earned the right to be a citizen in our Country.

It,s time someone demanded an end to Brown the Clowns services, for which he has not delivered.
Anyone who is different from the ordinary is considered crazy, and I am happy to be considered so.

I guess we just have to keep making our support for the gurkha cause felt and I would suggest contact your own local MP and ask what they plan to do about this injustice.

In the last 12 months I have begun to realise that these MP that we vote in every 4 or 5 years, actually will mostly do something if we pressure them to.

Where do we start, this beggars belief, our friends(The gurkas) would do anything that we asked of them and our so called govermant once again spin it totry and get the public to believe they will do the correct thing,but OH no another "U" turn and welching on their word. Iwould ask everybody to download a petition from the campaign site and tout it around your local Legion and pubs.C,m0n lads if anyone can do it the Hawks can. WE ALL OWE THEM A DEBT OF GRATITUDE! Good luck with your efforts and all the breast. :x :x :x
