The BNP must be going crazy that a group of non-white foreigners are being allowed to live here and be employed here thereby depleting space and resources rightfully intended for white, ethnic Britons.
British politicians have finally overcome nearly 200 years of (pro-BNP) racist policy by giving Gurkhas British rights based on merit rather than race. However, the Commons' vote was by no means unanimous and many found it so challenging to overcome politically entrenched racism that they abstained.
Yet, over the past decade, every blog written on the internet by soldier and civilian, who have had contact with Ghurkas, is filled with praise and admiration. The Gurkhas fought and still fight for Queen and Country but Queen and Country have neglected them against the will of the British people. Once again, our so-called, democratic establishment is detached from the democracy it allegedly serves.
But worse was yet to come - the Nick 'n Dave double act! They must have been so surprised to see all the cameras, as they stood alongside Joanna Lumley trying to put a sincere face to the Gurkha issue. It’s not their fault, as they only recently signed up to the cause. You see they didn’t
care know enough about it before, as such issues are far from the agenda of political party leaders.
And true to form, they ensured their smiling faces were photographed and used the opportunity to speak ill of their common enemy. In their political playground, standing alongside Gurkhas was a fair price to pay for one-upmanship on Gordon Brown.
Gurkhas were originally enlisted to fight with the British Indian Army in the 19th century after the British were unable to defeat them in battle. Strategically, it was a good move because it served to divide Indian unity as part of the Divide and Rule wisdom and provided an expendable fighting force when times got rough.
It was never intended that these foreign soldiers should be treated equally and it has taken nearly two centuries to achieve some justice. In 1999, widows of Gurkhas killed in action were finally given the same compensation as widows of British soldiers and, on 30 September 2008, a High Court Judge ruled that bravery and loyalty to the Crown equated to a "moral debt of honour".
