Honour Our Ghurka Heroes

I originally posted this on 21 March but have decided to repost it on this day that Gurkhas went to Court to seek what should be the bare minimum this country owes her loyal friends. Three Cheers for the Gurkhas! Three Cheers for Joanna Lumley!
Here's a simple message to the thick-skulled self-interested mediocrities who are collecting their ministerial salaries and other perks in this country:

Give every honourably discharged Gurkha British citizenship. Give them the same pensions as their British oppos. They and their predecessors have served our Queen and Country since 1814 and have thereby earned the right and our thanks and respect. It dishonours you that these proud and noble soldiers have to protest and litigate for rights that certain Britophobic minorities whom you have cultivated assiduously take for granted.

Right. Get back to reversing the changes you introduced from 1997 onwards but discovered didn't actually work. There's no need to tell the truth because no-one expects that any more from your lot. Dismissed.

These picture links will help you understand. Good. Bad.

I'm with you all the way, to expect these proud and honerable soldiers deserve our support and thanks, to see older members of this regiment having to walk for days to collect the pittance that we give them is shameful for this once proud country. Whilst people who are known terrorists and others who have committed serious crime are allowed to stay, surly common sense and humanity should say let the Ghurkas stay. All the best and bless you for your efforts K.N

Aayo Gurkhali!
Many thanks. If it takes a long hard struggle to win there are none better than the Gurkhas to stick at it until the inevitable victory of justice.

I have my hands ready to clasp over my ears at the howls of anger.....but....
Is it honourable to demand changes to the contract you made ? Is it honourable to agree to serve for a certain salary and pension and then complain. Is it right that anyone who has done a job for Britain, for money, should be allowed to live here ?
They were mercenaries, that is the lot of mercenaries, to be paid and then go home.
Same for the interpreters out in Iraq, take your pay, go home, that was the contract they signed up to.

The Gurkhas have been treated shamefully. Well done for highlighting this.
