Should ex Gurkhas Be Allowed To Live Here ?

Just read a recent article which made me angry. It seems that any Gurkhas who served before 1997 have no right of residence in the UK.

These people have served the Crown well and faithfully and are polite, industrious, self sufficient people without an ounce of criminality in their bodies. I have worked with them and admit that their culture is different from ours but they do integrate very well and have to be an assett to any countries economy.

We reject these people but welcome the Euroscum with open arms. It seems that criminality and laziness is welcomed here but rewarding service is not. What do you think ?

Yep! Without question, considering the other slubberdegullions that seem to flood in regardless. Silly government, allow neer' do wells to float around pushing drugs and forcing young girls to work in massage parlours and so on, and then go and block sterling assets to Queen and country, from residing here.

Without a doubt...No contest. They should have automatic rights in UK and Commonwealth what's left of it anyway.

What possible reason would
there be for not allowing them
into the UK?

In fact why aren't they given full
British citizenship on retirement?!

Feel free ! Glad it's not just me who has finger trouble ! Was just about to rant about the " No " vote, not because it's a no but 'cos whoever posted offered no explanation.

Now I'll have to go go and look in the rant box so I can have a whinge !

No question about it, they should be allowed to stay in Britain.

Re: Should ex Gurkhas Be Allowed To Live Here ?

My parents and in part myself lived in Nepal for six and a half years so got to know the people and the Ghurkas wery well.

England could not welcome a more wonderful and dedicated people to our isle. They deserve the same rights as our troops. They also value and defend our nation and Queen as much if not more than than a lot of folks around.

Re: Should ex Gurkhas Be Allowed To Live Here ?

we will never know how this goverment works its ok for a mp to pay his son for doing "cough" research,who may be a idle little sh1te for the rest of his life as daddy always comes up with the goods for him,Yet a gurkha who as protected us and his fellow troops in his duties,which after all that is what most young nepalese men strive for as it is a great honour for them and there families are then told your time's up chap,nice to have known ya now bugger off.Perhaps the solution is to put every idle so& so and those others from other countries who burden us tax payers put them in a miltia and send them off to Iraq , afgan, etc.Treat those who have served our country

KEEP THE WHEAT GET RID OF THE CHAFF is the easy way of saying it

Re: Should ex Gurkhas Be Allowed To Live Here ?

I voted no, they are paid (well) to do a job, no more, no less !!! The country is in the state it's in issuing british passports to it's workers from overseas. Our country is overcrowded enough as it is.

I might agitate people with my view, but there is no right or wrong on this, only opinions.

This might apply to about 3000 ex-service men, but they then bring they're spouces and children, then it would be their parents, cousins, uncles and auties. Suddenly 3,000 goes up to 50,000. Where would it end.

I'm not saying they are bad people, I've spent time working with them at their base in Brecon (Derring Lines) and they are very honourable, brave and hard working people.

The Indian railworkers from the commenwealth days were hard working people they were given British passports, they then settled in this country and now parts of the U.K. have a white minority.

Re: Should ex Gurkhas Be Allowed To Live Here ?

I may be wrong but i was informed that they are not payed the same as other troops and their pension's are less to boot so why not give them that little extra I.E. the chance to remain in this country,plus i think some are driving buses in one of our cities at night time due to the fact that other busdrivers where getting the crap knocked out of them but since the Gurkhas have been on the route's the violence has reduced so that is even more reason for a big yes from me

Never heard such a load of rubbish in my life.

There is no justification to extrapolate 3,000 in 50,000 and even if it did I would rather ship out some of our own homegrown scumbags and replace them with Indian, Pole and Nepalese hard working honest folk.

Gurkhas should be allowed British citizenship on retirement
