Gurkhas - Ministers just don't get it

I can't believe that Phil Woolas, the haplessly incompetent Home Office Minister who not only thought up a set of legalistic settlement criteria designed to keep as many Gurkhas out of Britain as possible, but is still harping on about this potential 100,000 people coming into Britain and the £1.5 billion he says it will cost.

Nobody has come up with any justification of these figures and, to be frank, they appear to be a great big load of nonsense.

It's quite clear that not only do the public favour equal settlement rights for Gurkhas, but their democratically elected representatives in Parliament do too.

You either respect the will of Parliament or you don't. If you don't, you have no place in Government.

If you agree, and you haven't already, sign up to the Gurkha Justice Campaign.
