Gurkhas Receive Equal Rights of Settlement

All serving members of the last remaining of the “martial races” from British India, the Gurkhas, have been granted equal rights of residence in the United Kingdom after an Opposition Day Debate in the House of Commons was won. Previously this had been restricted to those who’d served after 1997 when the former regimental home, in Hong Kong, was returned to one of the Chinas.

Brown could so easily have avoided this had he divined the mood of the country and those 27 Labour M.Ps who voted against him, not to mention those others who abstained. But, like the one-eyed man who would be king, he attempted to blind everyone else, only to become the first P.M. since Callaghan in 1978 to loose an Opposition Day Debate.

Luvvie, Joanna Lumley, whose father was an officer in the 6th Gurkha Rifles, and has taken up the public campaign, was able to express her disdain for Gord. When this happens, you know the time is up.

Hello darkness, my old friend.
